Benefits of Multifocal contact lenses


I came across this interesting article from Bausch and Lomb demonstrating the benefits of bifocal contact lenses:

Valuing freedom, confidence, and a sense of control, today's emerging presbyopes thrive on doing the things they love to do.

Bausch & Lomb Multi-Focal contact lenses allow them to live actively and confidently, without the discomfort and annoyance reading glasses may cause.


Multifocal contact lenses benefit emerging presbyopes in a number of ways:

Insight
Changing vision can reduce emerging presbyopes' ability to perform certain tasks, which in turn can hinder their confidence and sense of freedom

Bausch & Lomb Multifocal benefit: With the ability to see at every distance, patients can still do what they want to do, helping them maintain a positive self-image

Insight
Only 28% of presbyopes with correction other than multifocal contact lenses say their vision correction "doesn't get in the way of daily life"1

Bausch & Lomb Multifocal benefit: 81% of multifocal contact lens wearers say their lenses don't disrupt their lives1

Insight
Reading glasses can remind emerging presbyopes of their age, making them self-conscious, uncomfortable, and feeling unlike themselves.

Bausch & Lomb Multifocal benefit: Multifocal contact lenses can eliminate the need for reading glasses, keeping patients confident and independent. Source

Multifocal contacts are a very interesting option for people. I love to fit these lenses because it can give functional vision at distance and near with little time needed for adaptation. There can be some compromise in clarity vs. glasses when doing soft Multifocals but can be a great way to keep a long term contact lens wearer in contacts after 40. It is also a great option for those who have never worn glasses and now need some help up close.
