As you get older, you’ve probably noticed that close-up objects are starting to appear blurry. This is a sign of presbyopia, a frustrating yet natural condition that begins to affect most people as they enter their 40s. It impacts many aspects of quality of life, including difficulty with near vision tasks such as reading printed text, or using a smartphone. It is estimated that nearly 2 billion people struggle with presbyopia globally, but luckily new multifocal contact lenses can help win back the clear vision you used to enjoy.
The advances in multi-focal contact lens technology in Australia over the last few years have made contact lenses more accessible to everyone. In fact, if you wear glasses, chances are you can wear contact lenses too! There are a wide range of lenses available, providing the flexibility to meet almost every visual and lifestyle need.
Contact lenses are made from comfortable breathable materials ensuring your eyes remain fresh and lubricated all day, providing the freedom to exercise and play sports whilst seeing clearly. Multifocal contacts enable clear judgement of depth perception as well as clarity of reading, for example the computer on a bike, or equipment setup at the gym, or even the menu in a coffee shop after your morning yoga class. Forget pulling out glasses to read labels and price tags when shopping and imagine reading a menu in low-light without specs. Your presbyopia doesn’t have to hold you back!
In addition to meeting your visual demands, there are many choices when it comes to the type of contact lenses you can select. The best solution for you will depend on how often you plan to wear them, whether you’d like to be able to sleep in them, and your budget.
Not only can contact lenses cater to your every need, they are also relatively financially viable, costing as little as $2 a day, which is probably less than half the cost of your daily cup of coffee!!
Be empowered to enjoy the freedom of contact lenses, even as your eyes change – so you’re always ready to take on every day with confidence.
