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.
