Contact Lens FAQ 

If I wear bifocals, can I wear contact lenses?

One of the most rapidly growing sectors of our contact lens practice is the "progressive" lens crowd. Progressive sounds so much better than bifocal doesn’t it?! With older contact- lens designs, the best option was to fit patients in monovision. In this manner the two eyes work together to provide distance and near vision, even though one eye is more focused for near, and the other for far. It is now much more common for us to choose a multifocal contact-lens design for our patients. The improvement in materials and design often affords our patients good distance, computer and near vision with less dependence on glasses. Further, with both eyes working together, we avoid one of the potential drawbacks previously encountered in monovision.
