1 Day Acuvue Moist Multifocal Contact Lenses for Presbyopia
What is Presbyopia?
Presbyopia is a natural process which occurs in each and every one of us once we reach our forties. Typically, presbyopia makes it harder to see things at close range. For example; small print on packaging, mobile phone text, and restaurant menus become more difficult to read. Presbyopia happens because the lens in the eye stiffens and thickens with age so it is less able to change shape which makes focusing more challenging.
What are the symptoms of Presbyopia?
One of the first signs of Presbyopia is difficulty adjusting your focus quickly from far to near. This can make your vision feel slow to focus as you change from one distance to another and can lead on to affect your vision for everyday activities. Eventually, you may find that small print is blurred up close and you start holding books, magazines and menus at a distance to see the print more clearly.
Without vision correction, presbyopia can lead to headaches and eye fatigue.
What can I do about Presbyopia?
The good news is there are many solutions for people with presbyopia. They can wear varifocal glasses, reading glasses, or contact lenses with reading glasses over. However, there is now a “glasses-free” option: A new innovative technology, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand MULTIFOCAL contact lenses.
With an optimised, predictable fit, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST MULTIFOCAL contact lenses are able to deliver excellent all round vision. The lenses are built with ACUVUE® MOIST technology, renowned for providing a long-lasting cushion of moisture to help reduce symptoms of dryness. A unique aspheric centre near design mimics the natural shape of the cornea and the complex front surface optics of the eye. The result is a contact lens that restores your freedom of vision without the encumbrance of glasses. Brand ambassador Sara Cox says it “Feels like you’ve got your old eyesight back”.
