Typically after the age of 40, the muscles of our eyes have more difficulty focusing at near – this is called presbyopia. Due to this, many people need a prescription to help them focus up close, which can be different than what they need for distance. Multifocal contacts are designed to treat presbyopia.

Multifocal contacts are designed to provide clear vision at distance, near and intermediate ranges. There are several lenses available which each use their own technology to provide visual comfort at these distances. It requires a short period of adjustment, but most people get used to them. They come in various different lens materials including silicone hydrogel soft lenses and RGP (rigid gas permeable) lenses.

These contacts are a great option for those lifestyles that are on the go, busy and fast-paced. They offer clear vision in all distances so that you can enjoy your day no matter what you’re doing. They are also a great idea for occasional wear such as social events and sports.
