As we age, we develop presbyopia, the common age-related condition where we start finding it hard to focus on close-up objects. While reading glasses are a popular choice, but they may not work for everyone depending on our lifestyle activities and needs.
Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses give you another option; allowing you freedom and clear vision without the hassle of wondering where you put your reading glasses or having to have a pair of reading glasses in every room of the house. Bifocals have two distinct segments – one for distance and one for near. Multifocals are more like a progressive lens.
Another option for correcting presbyopia is monovision, which is excellent for those who are having difficulty adapting to multifocal lenses. Monovision uses the dominant eye for distance and your non-dominant eye for near vision.
It is important to discuss these options with one of our knowledgeable doctors. They will work with you to find the right fit for your lifestyle and your vision adaptability.
