iSight Optometry has long supported the quality and value of Acuvue contact lenses, and we are pleased to offer their latest product – 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses – which is now available at our practice. These lenses offer a ‘superior vision experience for eyes with presbyopia’.
Some time after age 40, many people begin to experience blurred near vision when performing tasks such as reading, using a cell phone, or working at a computer. Presbyopia is a common type of vision problem that is a normal part of ageing. With the onset of presbyopia, people find they need to hold books, magazines, newspapers, menus and other reading materials farther away in order to see the print clearly. Headaches and eyestrain are other symptoms of presbyopia, which is an age-related loss of flexibility of the lens inside the eye. This is different from myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness) or astigmatism (distorted vision due to a irregularly shaped cornea), which are related to the shape of the eyeball and occur early in life. When the lens becomes hardened and less elastic, the eye has a harder time focusing up close.
Presbyopia can be easily corrected by wearing reading glasses or contact lenses.
‘With new 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses you’ll experience clear vision – near, intermediate, and far, in dim light and bright – so you can continue wearing contact lenses to do the things you love. And because they’re built on the 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST platform, you’ll get the same comfort and convenience you expect, for many years to come.’
Because changes in the lens of your eye continue as you grow older, your prescription will increase over time. Your eye care professional will prescribe a stronger correction as and when you need it.
