TIPS

  • To confirm that your contact lens design is still the best and healthiest choice for your eyes and your lifestyle – and that you are caring for your contact lenses correctly, book in for a contact lens examination annually!
  • Your contact lens material may not be compatible with all lens disinfecting solutions. Ask your optometrist’s advice before changing your disinfecting solution. The wrong soaking solution can seriously affect the performance and comfort of your lens on your eye.

Narelle Hine, our principal Optometrist draws on her strong clinical research background to help people who need more specialised rigid contact lens designs such as for the conditions of Keratoconus and corneal Grafts.

What You Should Know About Multifocal Contact Lenses

Multifocal contact lenses provide the best of both worlds: clear seamless near and distance vision, as well as ease of wear and accessibility for every-day use. Here at HineSight, we have a variety of multifocal contact lens options that may be prescribed, depending on your individual lifestyle and preferences.

Understanding Multifocal Contact Lenses:

  • The essential qualities of multifocal contact lenses are that their optics are designed differently to multifocal (also called progressive) glasses. They still contain both distance, intermediate and near visual zones to help you see more naturally and conveniently at varying distances from you. They are ideal for people with presbyopia (usually 45 years of age and older), or people who need dedicated reading lenses for focusing on close objects.
  • Multifocal lenses offer a smooth transition for people who are accustomed to using  distance correction contact lenses  and now need additional reading help but resent the look or inconvenience  of waring over specs to restore their near clarity.
  • Multifocal contact lenses are available in soft lens and rigid gas permeable materials. The most common type is based on a concentric design, which uses a set of concentric annular zones of vision with different powers to enable clear viewing at various distances. Blended aspheric centre near optics are currently the most popular design option because they deliver clearest computer screen vision.

The Benefits of Wearing Progressive Contact Lenses

The need for progressive lenses increases with age. If you are over 45 years of age and have trouble focusing on nearby objects, you have the normal human condition of presbyopia. These lenses allow you to see clearly at various distances without a distracting bifocal line.

Progressive lenses provide a gradual transition in strength from the top to the bottom of the lens, making your vision feel seamless. Apart from correcting near and farsightedness, toric contact lenses assist in correcting astigmatism, which may be the result of keratoconus. An irregularly-shaped cornea prevents light from focusing evenly on the retina, which leads to blurry vision.

You can enjoy these benefits with progressive contact lenses:

  • Since these lenses can include different strengths, you eliminate the need to carry an extra pair of spectacles. Previously, individuals would have to use different pairs of glasses for certain situations, such as a pair for driving and one for reading. It’s much more convenient to rely on just one set of lenses, which is why more individuals are considering them today.
  • When you wear progressive lenses, you can enjoy the advantages of a multifocal lens without the distraction of the multifocal line. Thanks to the gradual shift in the strength of the lens, you won’t have to deal with sudden changes to the clarity or adjust your eyes.
  • While wearing glasses is a practical solution to correct your vision, it can be inconvenient, especially if you live an active lifestyle. Individuals can also become self-conscious about wearing spectacles, which is why progressive lenses are ideal: nobody will know that you have contact lenses on, but you can still rely on them for clear vision.
