Contact lenses have grown to become a preferred choice among many people due to their flexibility, wider visual access, and many other benefits. Contacts are available in many types, and one example is bifocal contact lenses. These are designed to carry two different prescriptions in just one lens. We provide these types of lenses at Chapel Hills Vision Clinic in Colorado Springs, CO. Our optometry team will determine if bifocal contact lenses are right for you.
What Are Bifocal Contact Lenses?
Bifocal contact lenses are exactly what the name describes. They are contacts that have two different prescriptions in one lens. One is for distance and the other is for near-vision or reading. While some people may prefer to go with glasses, bifocals still provide a wider range of viewing than regular glasses, as well as more convenience.
Almost anyone can benefit from using bifocal contact lenses. If you have a closer range prescription that still isn't close enough to view certain objects clearly, then bifocals would be a great way to see those objects without having to wear glasses. If you find yourself not wearing your current glasses as much as you should because they do not provide the necessary vision for certain activities, then changing those prescriptions into bifocals could make it easier and more convenient.
Using Bifocal Contact Lenses
These types of lenses are inserted just like any other contact lens, so there is no real difference in putting them on compared with regular contacts once you know how to do it. The first thing our optometry team will do is determine if these types of lenses are going to work for you. Once we determine that, then you will receive the necessary exams like a regular contact lens exam to make sure your eyes are healthy enough for them and determine which prescription will work best.
