Multifocal Contact Lenses
Need a corrective lens for near and distance vision? Wish you could wear contact lenses? You can. In Gaithersburg and Frederick, MD multifocal contact lenses are available at V.Eye.P.
In the past, contacts were only available in one prescription strength. They were usually worn to correct nearsightedness, enabling those who needed lenses for distance vision to get by without glasses. But come 40, most people develop presbyopia, requiring reading glasses to see things up-close with clarity. In fact, farsightedness can affect anyone at any age, including people who also have nearsightedness.
Bifocals have been around since the days of Benjamin Franklin, but those only provided vision correction with two distinct prescriptions: the upper part for far and the lower part for near.
