Your ophthalmologist or optician will recommend multifocal contact lenses if you are suffering from presbyopia, which occurs when your short-range vision deteriorates as you get older. Unlike conventional contact lenses, which can only correct short-sightedness or long-sightedness, since 1982 multifocal lenses have offered clear vision for different distances. Multifocal lenses are divided into segmented bifocal lenses and concentric multifocal lenses. There are alternating and simultaneous multifocal lenses, and it is also possible to have one eye corrected for long distances and the other for short distances. In addition to the anatomical circumstances, the method chosen in each individual case will depend on the visual requirements and occupation of the patient, and it is important that the contact lens specialist advising the patient has a lot of experience.

Even if a patient has a cataract operation, he or she could choose whether the lens to be implanted is a lens that is just for distance or a multifocal lens. The latter option is used by doctors very rarely, however.

It is always worth comparing multifocal lens prices with those of varifocal glasses and even two different pairs of single-strength glasses. Multifocal contact lenses are the best alternative to glasses. The latest lens technology ensures that multifocal lenses are able to correct poor eyesight successfully and offer high comfort levels at the same time.
