Having trouble seeing at near? Want another convenient option beside reading glasses? Contact lenses are one of the best options for people who want to experience clear vision without wearing spectacles or undergoing surgery. This includes people who suffer from presbyopia, a normal part of the aging process that befalls people who reach age 40 and beyond. It can be customized and individualized for your occupation or hobbies and fulfill your visual demands.
As one ages, the lens of the eye becomes drier and less flexible, hindering its ability to focus on near objects. A person with presbyopia will need to hold things farther from them when doing ‘near’ work, and will benefit from prescription lenses.
That’s why it’s common to find people wearing spectacles when they didn’t use to.
Dr Ali Khalife, optometrist, shares, ‘Contact lenses were not a great option for people with presbyopia until the recent past. With the advancement in science, new designs and materials have come up, leading to the evolution of multifocal contact lenses and making them an effective option for the treatment of presbyopia. New age multifocal contact lenses can provide uncompromised vision at all distances without affecting the comfort.’
If you have been noticing that you need to hold things away from the usual working distance to see them clearly, you may be suffering from presbyopia. Finding it difficult to read or do near tasks in dim illumination is also one of presbyopia’s most common signs.
Multifocal contact lenses is a highly beneficial and convenient option for the management of these problems.
The Science of Comfort
One of the most irritating things is the feeling of having something stuck in your eye. Contact lens problems like infection, poor fitting or old contact lenses can cause this. The wearer may also experience
- movement of lenses in the eye
- blurred or fluctuating vision
- redness of the eye
- light sensitivity
- a variable degree of pain
Contact lenses directly touch the most delicate organ of your body—your eyes—so when it comes to contact lenses, we understand the importance of comfort.
