Q

Are you having trouble reading things that you could read last year or even last week?

Are you having trouble reading things that you could read last year or even last week? Getting headaches above or between your eyebrows after reading for a while? Have you had about 40 birthdays? You may be experiencing early presbyopia, or the natural loss of ability to focus at near. 

This happens to everyone at some point, which is why you see “cheaters” or over-the-counter reading glasses sold at checkout aisles everywhere. Though “cheaters” are helpful tools, there are other options!

One of the best options is soft, multifocal contact lenses. Whether you are already a contact lens wearer or not, it’s never too late to start! Multifocal contacts have a sophisticated design which allows you to see clearly at distance and near without even thinking about it!

Since these lenses have many parameters and designs, you can have a specialized prescription for your daily visual needs – whether you only need a little help at near, or you spend all day at the computer. Ask your eye doctor if you are a good candidate for multifocal contacts and begin to see the world clearly again, without the help of reading glasses.
