What Are Bifocal Contact Lenses?

Bifocal contact lenses work like bifocal or progressive glasses, and there are two types available. The first type allows the top part of the lens to help you see at a distance, and the bottom part help you see up close.

The second type works in a concentric circle where the middle part is for normal prescription and the outer rings for near vision prescription. These lenses are available in different forms, including soft, disposable, and gas permeable lenses.

Who Are Good Candidates for Bifocal Contact Lenses?

Bifocal contact lenses work best if you have mild or moderate astigmatism, presbyopia, or myopia. Your eye doctor will conduct a full contact lens exam to determine if you are a good candidate for these types of lenses. If you already wear bifocal eyeglasses, then you should adjust well to them.

Can One Wear Bifocal Contacts With Astigmatism?

If you have moderate astigmatism, and you have been told that you can't wear bifocal contact lenses, then you might still have an option. Multifocal contact lenses are available to accommodate both the irregularities of astigmatism and bifocal vision. However, they may take a little longer to adjust. If your eye doctor determines that these lenses will work for you, then you will get a specialized prescription that compensates for your astigmatism.
