Acuvue bifocal contact lenses enable you to comfortably shift focus between near and far distances, under variety of lighting conditions. Acuvue bifocal provide great lifestyle benefits as well.
Are you unable to focus on nearby objects? If you have presbyopia chances are you wear reading
glasses or old-fashioned bifocal contacts. Or you might wear monovision contacts that correct one eye for near vision and the other eye for distance vision.
With Acuvue bifocals, you have a new choice. The design of the Acuvue bifocal contacts, manufactured by Vistakon of Johnson and Johnson, helps you beat both near and distance blurry vision.
How Acuvue Bifocal Contact Lenses Work
Each acuvue bifocal lens is made up of five invisible, concentric rings, or zones. The central distance zone is surrounded by a near ring, another distance ring, a second near ring, and an outer distance ring.
The whole concentric rings bring both distant and near objects into focus at the same time.
Here the term “bifocal” is a bit misleading. It is true that each bifocal lens is designed with only two zones of vision in the same lens.
However, Acuvue bifocal contact lens isn’t designed the same way as bifocal glasses. You won’t find a small segment on the bottom of the lens that you use to read. The lens design is similar to that of a bull’s eye target.
What Acuvue Bifocal Contact Lenses Can Do
Acuvue Bifocal lenses are right for you if you’re ready to change prescription more frequently than before. That’s because presbyopia is a progressive condition that gets worse as you get older.
Once you’ve been fitted with the lenses, your eyes will probably need some time to adjust. The time varies from person to person. Some people adapt immediately. Other people may need their prescription adjusted slightly before they can adapt.
If successful, Acuvue bifocal can provide binocular vision. Unlike monovision contact lenses, depth perception is retained because both of your eyes are corrected for near and for distance.
What Acuvue Bifocal Can’t Do
Acuvue bifocal contacts has no intermediate vision correction. To achieve good vision at computer range, your eye doctor may fit you with unequal adds. Your dominant eye might be fit with a + 1.00 or + 1.50 add, and your non-dominant eye might be fit with a higher add.
If you have astigmatism, you may not be a good candidate. Acuvue bifocals do not correct astigmatism. They aren’t for you if your job related to viewing any type of small print or you have problems with night vision.
So, success with acuvue bifocal contacts depends on your specific eye conditions and your expectations — vision quality and your lifestyle.
