Bifocal and Monovision Contact Lens Fit

As we age, we are often in need of both a prescription for far and up close. Bifocal lenses are specifically designed to shift on the eye to allow for vision at two different distances. Bifocal contacts can often eliminate the need for patients to put glasses on over their contact lenses to see the computer or read.
Sometimes monovision is a better fit for your daily needs then bifocal contacts. Monovision is the use of one eye more for distance and one eye more for near. Oftentimes patients will see better at both distances with this form of correction. We use this form of correction to reduce the need to take out glasses to see at all distances.
