Ciba Vision Focus Progressives Discontinued

focus progressives contactsCIBAVision offers Focus Progressives — daily wear, monthly replacement soft contacts, which is approved for up to six nights of continuous wear. You’ll get all the benefits of progressive glasses, without the frames, in soft contact lenses. With these progressive contact lenses, you can enjoy clear vision at all distances without compromising your active lifestyle.
