Bifocal Contact Lenses - Toss Out
Those Tired Glasses and Turn Back the Clock

Up until a few years ago, the only option for middle-aged and elderly individuals who had presbyopia was to purchase bifocal eyeglasses. Although this generally wasn’t a concern for the over 70 crowd, the rest of us weren’t exactly thrilled about it. Wearing thick bulky bifocal glasses really shows your age and that was something that I wasn’t prepared to do. However with new bifocal contact lenses, not only can I maintain my sight, but I can also keep the illusion of 35 going on for at least another couple of years.

There are basically three types of bifocal contact lens. Each type works on the same principle as traditional bifocal eyeglasses with sections designated for both near and far vision correction. However, the actual layout of the distance and near segments of the contact will differ depending on which types of bifocal contacts are purchased.

The first type of bifocal contacts is designed exactly like the bifocal eyeglass with a line dividing the closer viewing area of the contact lens from the section used to see objects further away. The second type has allocated the center of the contact for seeing closer objects and the outer ring for distant objects (or the reverse). The third type of bifocal lens has blended the two areas within the pupil area of the contact lens.

Because everyone’s visual health is different, it may take longer for some people to adjust to wearing bifocal contact lens in comparison to traditional contacts. This is especially true if you are going to be wearing the blended bifocal contact lens. However, if your eyes have not adjusted to the bifocal contacts after a reasonable period of time, you may need to revert back to traditional bifocal eyeglasses.

If you are tired of wearing bifocal glasses, talk to your eye practitioner today about bifocal contact lens. With three varieties to choose from, you will certainly find one that you and your eyes will agree with.
