As we grow older our vision begins to deteriorate and many people experience difficulty when reading at close or shorter distances. This condition is called Presbyopia and occurs when the crystalline lens in your eye hardens and loses flexibility. The lens is less able to focus incoming light and as a result vision becomes blurred at reading distance. Presbyopia is a naturally occurring vision condition that affects most people in their 40s.
Many people believe that once they experience the symptoms of presbyopia, the only solution is to wear glasses. Today, this is not the case with many multifocal contact lenses available.
Incorporating the latest advances in comfort and materials, multifocal contact lenses deliver clear, crisp vision at every distance: near, far and in between. Multifocal contact lenses allow your eye to focus naturally so you can experience clear vision.
They are available in a range of wearing schedules including dailies, daily care and extended wear options.
Even if you've never worn glasses or contact lenses before, you can still benefit from the freedom and comfort of multifocal contact lenses.
