VFL 3 HD Multifocals

Conforma's VFL 3 Multifocals have been a successful option for most specialty GP lens fitters for many years. This proven VFL 3 design and fitting technique remains a constant. In recent years Conforma has developed aspheric anterior surfaces to compliment the optics and expand the add power capability of our traditional VFL 3 Multifocals. HD OPTICSTM was the first stage in the development of our front surface technology. HD OPTICSTM minimizes aberrations and maximizes optical quality resulting in improved visual acuity for your patients. HD-APTM is our latest front surface development which targets the always present demand for higher add powers.


VFL 3 with HD OPTICSTM for advanced presbyopes (HD-APTM) will extend the add power range to better accommodate those patients with higher add demands. This aspheric front surface provides a junctionless progression of increasing add power from the optical center to the intermediate and peripheral areas of the optical zone. This progressive power change results in 360 degrees of functional distance, intermediate and near vision. Your patients will enjoy improved near without compromise to intermediate or distance vision. Unlike zonal or annular designs, HD-APTM provides distortion-free transition from a distant street sign to an intermediate dash board or small print near tasks.


Since HD and HD-APTM are front surface additions to the traditional VFL 3 design, there is no need to change your fitting approach. Well centered position with normal apical clearance will provide the best fit and simultaneous vision. Your standard VFL 3 fitting set will serve as a valuable diagnostic tool for selecting the best fit and for over-refractive purposes. All VFL 3 lenses are position dependent. The least plus or most minus power is central, therefore poor centration or significant translation will negatively impact distance and intermediate vision. Always maximize centration before incorporating minus power changes.
