Remember the first time you put your contact lenses in? Ahh… love at first sight, right? You could suddenly see fabulously and felt great about not having to depend on glasses.
But something’s changed, that is, your vision. Your contact lenses no longer provide the correction you need to clearly see objects both near and far. Chances are, you’re now dealing with presbyopia, a declining ability to focus on close-up objects. When trying to read something with small type—say a restaurant menu, food package, or phone—you begin by stretching your arm further away to focus.
Presbyopia is an inevitable (but unenviable) change you’re bound to begin noticing sometime in your 40s.
Not so long ago, you had only one option to correct the problem: reading glasses. Today, you do have options. So, if you favor contacts, you need not get discouraged and trade them in for glasses.
Today, a range of contact lens options are available that deliver vision correction for different focal lengths.
