Bifocal & Multifocal
Disposable-wear lenses are removed nightly and replaced on either a daily (one day), weekly or monthly schedule. One-Day disposable lenses are greatly recommended for teenagers, people with allergies or for those who tend to form deposits on their lenses.
Toric soft contact lenses
Toric soft contact lenses can correct astigmatism. They are available as one-day, bi-weekly or monthly replacement lenses.
Monovision is a technique that is often prescribed for people age 40 and older who are affected by presbyopia and need close-up correction. Presbyopia occurs when, as part of the natural aging process, the eye’s crystalline lens loses its ability to bring close objects into clear focus.
Monovision means wearing a contact lens for near vision on one eye and, if needed, a lens for distance vision on the other eye. Most people whom try monovision are able to adjust to it. Alternative treatments for presbyopia include a combination of contact lenses and reading glasses ,or your doctor may also prescribe bifocal contact lenses.
Bifocal or multifocal contact lenses
Bifocal or multifocal contact lenses can correct nearsightedness/farsightedness in combination with presbyopia. Visual quality is often not as good as with single vision lenses; however, for some people the ability to correct presbyopia is worth it.
