CONTACT LENSES FOR BIFOCALS Have you noticed a difference in your vision that has made focusing at close distances more difficult? This condition is known as presbyopia (prez-bee-OH-pee-uh), and it hinders your ability to change focus from distant objects to those that are close to you. Everyone's vision begins to change at around 40. It is a natural part of life that happens to everyone. It affects more than 100 million North Americans, so it's only a question of when and to what degree it will happen to you. Correcting presbyopia used to require bifocal glasses. But today's bifocals are not your parents' bifocals. Bifocal contact lenses offer you vision correction without changing the way you look or limiting your active lifestyle. Recognizing the symptoms of presbyopia largely depends on the daily tasks or routines you perform, and your need to focus close up. If you've noticed any of these signs, be sure to tell your eye-care professional so he or she can determine if you're becoming presbyopic and if vision correction is needed at this time. CONTACT LENSES FOR ASTIGMATISM Astigmatism relates to the shape of the eye. Whereas the non-astigmatic eye has a round cornea, the astigmatic eye often has an oblong (football shaped) cornea. People with astigmatism cannot see both horizontal and vertical lines clearly at the same time, making objects appear blurry or out of focus. Recent breakthroughs in how contact lenses are designed and in the materials used to make them mean that people with astigmatism should expect contact lenses to offer clean and consistent vision throughout the day as well as immediate and all-day comfort.
