Multifocal Contact Lenses
Multifocal contact lenses are changing the game in the contact lens world. If you are over 40 years old and looking for a contact lens that can correct both your distance and reading vision. We have a solution for you. More and more patients are able to enjoy great vision at distance and near with the new Multifocal contact lens designs. If you are active and enjoy biking, jogging or playing sports these contact lenses are definitely worth a try. Reading glasses use to be the only option we had to wear over our contact lenses.
I personally have been able to enjoy clearer vision with these new designs. There are a few different modes of wear for each individual. There are currently soft monthly and one day disposable multifocal contact lenses. These contact lenses are also available in rigid gas permeable material. We can even correct for a moderate amount of astigmatism in a multifocal contact lens.
The new designs allow you to read thru the middle of the lens since your pupils constrict while reading. Your distance vision is not affected at all. We are currently trying out a new Multifocal astigmatism lens. This new custom made contact lens has great vision and can correct almost any prescription. All multifocal contact lenses require that you have the best light while reading. This helps the pupils constrict which will aid in reading.
Most of the new designs are called aspheric multifocal design. This means the center of the lens is for reading and the rest is for distance vision. This design seems to be the best for vision. Pupils vary in size and this design negates the effect of larger pupils on your vision. If you would like to try these new Multifocal contact lenses please us a call at our Eye Care Center or visit our website at EyeMechanix.com to schedule an eye exam with our Optometrist.
