Bifocal & Multifocal Contact Lenses

As we age almost everyone will experience Presbyopia – difficulty changing focus from near to far objects. Hold the menu up close and the words appear blurred, extend it to arm's length and suddenly the focus returns.

Traditionally people with presbyopia groan and reach for the reading glasses or bifocal specs. Luckily there are more and more great contact lens options available for people with presbyopia: bifocals, mulitfocal and progressives. In fact, today's bifocal contact lenses are not really bifocals any more. The vast majority are "multifocal" which means they have an infinite amount of focusing between far and near.

Although they can be tricky to get used to at first many people love the convenience and improved appearance that can be gained from multifocal contacts. If this is something you would like to explore contact our eye care clinic today. We'd be happy to work with you on a bifocal or multifocal contact lens fitting.

Keep reading for a primer on presbyopia and mulitfocal contacts.
