Contact lens for 40 years old and above

Even with age, people with poor eyesight can still benefit from wearing contact lenses. Even with presbyopia, people can still wear contact lenses even if they have no obvious symptoms.

Contact Lenses Paired With Reading Glasses

If you are wearing contact lenses for distance vision, then a pair of reading glasses may be slipped on top of your contact lenses. However, if you are not able to reach for your reading glasses, then you should consider wearing a pair of non-disposable glasses.

Wearing the correct pair of contacts and eyeglasses is the best way to get the clearest vision possible. This method of vision correction works by focusing on the task at hand and delivering the clearest, sharpest vision possible. You must take off your reading glasses whenever you want to see clearly at distance.

Monovision Contact Lenses

In monovision, both near and distance contact lenses are worn. The former is worn for distance vision and the latter for near. Due to the dominant eye, wearing a near-focused contact lens can be easily adapted to this method of vision correction. 

If you're having trouble finding a comfortable contact lens, your doctor has an endless variety of options. With monovision, your doctor can customize the lens materials and shapes to fit your needs. While wearing monovision contacts, the depth perception is slightly decreased. This could be a problem for people who enjoy sports.

Bifocal or Multifocal Contact Lenses

A multifocal contact lens is a type of contact lens that works by allowing two eyes to focus on different parts of the vision, such as distance and near vision. It can be worn for both long-term and short-term vision.

Multifocal lenses minimally decrease depth perception, if at all. If fit successfully, you will not have to wear eyeglasses over your contact lenses for most of your daily activities. Some multifocal lens patients complain of blurred vision while doing certain tasks. If distance vision is extremely clear, then near vision sometimes suffers. If near vision is clear, distance or intermediate vision may be less than expected.
Some eye doctors fit a mixture of the above methods, depending on a patient's needs. Fitting Presbyopic contact lenses depends on many factors including your flexibility, lifestyle, prescription and your eye’s anatomy and physiology.
