3 Specifically Designed Contact Lenses For Patients Aged 40 And Above
Most people, after the age of 40, start to notice a few changes in their vision. Typically, it is at age 40 to 45, where most people’s eyes begin to lose the ability to focus on close objects, especially so in a dimly lit environment. 1 Such a condition is likely to be associated with Presbyopia, a very common, age-related eye problem that significantly alters your vision.
You will find many vision correction options that are specifically designed to address the problem of Presbyopia. Whether you have had a perfectly normal vision before or have always been wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses, you can rectify the vision-related challenges that come with Presbyopia easily.
Before you make any decision about wearing contact lenses that can help with Presbyopia, you must consult with your Optometrist/ophthalmologist. Based on their recommendation, you can start wearing contact lenses that suit your eyes the best.
What To Do If You Don’t Like Wearing Glasses?
Many people are not comfortable wearing eyeglasses, whether due to cosmetic reasons or discomfort. Everyone has their preference, and so do you. So, if you also don’t like wearing glasses, consult with your eye care specialist about wearing contact lenses for correction of Presbyopia.
Talk to your Optometrist/ophthalmologist and explore options of multifocal contact lenses. Specially designed and crafted, multifocal contact lenses contain multiple prescription powers zones on a single lens, much like in progressive glasses except for the hassles that spectacles tend to bring.
Multifocal Contact Lenses For Presbyopia
Similar to progressive glasses, multifocal contact lenses also involve an adjustment period for you to get used to your new vision. Once you get accustomed to your new contact lenses, then you will enjoy clear vision.
To help you, we have listed three of Bausch+Lomb’s best contact lenses designed to correct Presbyopia:
