If you're over 40, you might start to think that you need extensions at the end of your arms to read a menu or the newspaper properly. If this is the case, welcome to the world of presbyopia. In a nutshell, presbyopia is a visual condition that causes close-up objects to become blurred, and it can affect anyone between the ages of 40 and 45.
Did you know that it is possible to correct your near and far vision with contact lenses?
Multifocal contact lenses are designed to provide clear vision at all distances for people experiencing a normal decline in near vision. Several manufacturers offer contact lenses made of silicone hydrogel that are more comfortable to wear, allowing more oxygen to reach the cornea than conventional soft contact lenses. These lenses are also available for daily wear or extended wear.
CooperVision offers Biofinity contact lenses
Biofinity Multifocal lenses are stable because they do not slip. You will feel like you are not wearing contact lenses. The new process has been designed to respect the balance of ocular dominance, i.e. the dominance of one eye for distance or near vision. Biofinity Multifocal lenses correct both presbyopia and myopia (or hyperopia), providing optimal vision at all distances. Therefore, these contact lenses are intended for people with incipient presbyopia, usually around the age of 40.
