How can multifocal contact lenses help me?

Multifocal contact lenses feature multiple powers within the lenses, helping your eyes see clearly and focus on subjects at multiple distances. By providing clarity and continuous vision, multifocal lenses can help you get the most out of life, whether you need to focus at work or school, enjoy your favorite hobbies, or excel at sporting activities.

As such, getting the vision-correcting help you need can prove life-changing, and the first step is a comprehensive eye exam at our state-of-the-art practice. We do all we can to make our patients as comfortable as possible while detecting any issues that may be affecting your vision or overall ocular health.

Some of the most common sight-impairing conditions are known as refractive disorder, and include nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and presbyopia (age-related farsightedness). The first three conditions are the most well-known and caused by an abnormally shaped eyeball, which cannot properly focus light. Presbyopia, on the other hand, is caused by the gradual degradation of ocular tissues due to age.

What are the benefits of multifocal contact lenses?

Contact lenses offer vastly improved vision by serving as an artificial surface of the eye to correct the abnormal curvature that doesn't allow for the proper focusing on light. For example, if incoming light does not land on the correct part of the photoreceptive retina, one's image of the world will be distorted and lack focus at one or more distances. Fortunately, multifocal contact lenses have multiple powers to allow you to see clearly across different distances.

Compared to glasses, contact lenses offer a wider field of view (since they sit directly on the eye's surface, the cornea) and do not fog up. Additionally, our cutting-edge on-site optical lab has many choices of contact lenses available, and we're happy to assist you in selecting the optimal option for your needs.
