As people get older generally they need to wear spectacles for reading even if they do not wear glasses normally. This is called presbyopia. It occurs as the lens in the eye becomes less supple and harder to change shape making it more difficult to adjust focus and makes close objects look blurred.
Exciting new advances in technology have led to the development of multifocal contact lenses. These lenses enable the wearer to see clearly at all distances. These multifocal lenses work differently to varifocal glasses, so that if you have not got on with varifocals in the past, you may still be able to use multifocal contact lenses successfully.
Multifocal lenses work by presenting the eyes with all distances at once. Your brain is then able to select which image it wants to use, ignoring the others. It is not a conscious choice, just a clever thing your brain can do! This means that all distances are able to been seen, even if sunbathing on a beach and reading, accessing things on a high shelf, things should be clear at all heights, angles and distances.
