Multifocal Contact Lenses

Contortionists Need Not Apply…

Was a change in vision your 40th birthday present?  Do you ever wonder if there are options other than bifocals, progressive glasses or over-the-counter readers that you put on and take off…again and again and again?

There are other options and soft multifocal contacts are one of them!  Soft contact lenses that have a prescription in them for more than one distance work using a simultaneous vision design.  That means that there are concentric rings of power in the contact lenses and at any given time, your eyes can provide 3 different images to your brain for distance, computer, and reading, simultaneously.  It’s your brain’s job then to decide which image to pay attention to!

Because the power is arranged in rings, vision is possible in any direction. This means reading labels on a shelf above your head, reading your phone in your hand, or looking straight ahead at your computer monitor are all possible without maintaining a head position that a contortionist would celebrate….one that might cause neck pain too.

Even better, many of the new multifocal contact lenses are made of materials that are very moist, some that are 100% water on the surface!  Our doctors have many years of experience fitting contact lenses and our staff is exceptionally patient when it comes to teaching new contact lens wearers the ins and outs of contact lenses.  Call our office today to schedule an appointment to see if you’re a candidate for multifocal contact lenses.

We are located in the Wellington Green Commons Shopping Center near Whole Foods and have convenient evening and Saturday hours.
