Contact Lenses and Presbyopia

Presbyopia, the loss of near focusing, first occurs between the ages of 35 to 45.  Early symptoms of presbyopia appear as the need to push your reading material further away from you to obtain clear vision.  Presbyopia is a natural process that is unavoidable. With glasses, bifocals or progressive (no line bifocals) lenses do the trick.  But do not rule out contact lenses!  There are many new multifocal contact lens designs that allow patients with presbyopia to have great vision at distance and near without the use or hassle of reading glasses. It’s a great time to be presbyopic!
