Bifocal Contacts

As people age, their eyes become increasingly unable to focus as clearly on near objects. This is called presbyopia and it is a condition that comes with age and is largely unavoidable. This is why many people opt for reading glasses as they get older. But just because you have difficulty focusing your eyes or reading text up close, this doesn't mean you have to live any less of an active lifestyle. Bifocal contact lenses were designed to combat the effects of presbyopia and as an option for people who wish to avoid being chained to reading glasses or bifocals. Walgreens sells many kinds of contact lenses including bifocal lenses to meet your needs. Consult with your optometrist to see which type of bifocal contact lenses will work best for you.

Types of Bifocal Contact Lenses

There are two main types of bifocal contact lenses: alternating vision lenses and simultaneous vision lenses. Alternating vision contacts are very much like regular bifocals in that when you alternate the viewing axis of your eye, you alternate your eye's focusing capabilities. With simultaneous vision, both the distant images and the near images that your eyes perceive are formed on the retina at the same time. This is done through the use of a concentric pattern on the contact where the near or far correction can be viewed through the small circle at the center and the other correction through the peripheral ring. Your brain then decides which image to use in order to bring whatever you're trying to view into optimal focus in much the same way it uses your ears to discriminate background noise from the sounds you want to hear. Bifocal contacts have made significant changes since they were first introduced in 1938, and come in rigid gas permeable, soft and hybrids forms. Your optometrist will help you to determine which type of lenses will work best for your needs. Whichever lenses you and your doctor decide on - alternating vision or simultaneous, gas permeable or soft - Walgreens is sure to have the contact lenses to give you a better world view.
