Multifocal contact lenses

What are multifocal contact lenses?

Multifocal contact lenses are specifically designed to help you to see at all distances through one lens, helping you to see at a distance as wellas correct vision changes that occur with Presbyopia.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia affects your ability to read things close up and the ability of your eyes to adjust between varying distances. Maybe it’s getting harder to see the small print on your phone or read the menu in a restaurant? Don’t worry – this is a completely normal change that happens to almost everyone in their forties as the lens within your eye begins to lose flexibility.

As these changes happen over time it’s important that you have regular eye tests so that your Optician can monitor your eyesight and the health of your eyes.
