New multifocal contact lenses from Johnson & Johnson have been described as "a great option" by one supplier.

Katie Mendez, office manager for Greenville EyeCare Associates, said that the Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia product provides "both comfort and vision improvements".

The contact lenses are silicone hydrogel and are meant for wearers of bifocal or multifocal lenses for activities such as reading, using a computer or looking at objects from a distance.

Ms Mendez also said that it was an "innovative" product.

Other contact lens products by Johnson and Johnson include Acuvue Dailies, 1 Day Acuvue and 1 Day Acuvue Moist.

It also makes Visine, a product which relieves itchiness, irritation and redness in eyes.

One Visine product is intended for use with contact lenses.

Visine for Contacts moistens daily and extended wear soft contact lenses and eyes and can help to get rid of small foreign bodies that may be irritating for the wearer.
