What are bifocal contacts?
Bifocal contact lenses are lenses that offer two different prescriptions in a single lens. One prescription is for close reading, and the other for normal, distance vision. The dual prescriptions help people who suffer from presbyopia, where age-related changes to the eye cause difficulties in focusing on close objects. Bifocal contacts in Hamilton are designed with a defined line between the near vision prescription and the distance prescription. You switch back and forth between zones, as you would with bifocal eyeglasses.

Types of bifocal contacts:
There are two types of bifocal contact lens designs: segmented bifocal and simultaneous bifocal. Segmented bifocals are very similar to eyeglasses, in which they separate the different prescriptions within the lense. Usually, the near vision prescription is in the lower part of the lens, and the normal, distance prescription is in the rest of the lens. Simultaneous bifocals have a concentric design. The center of the lens has the normal vision prescription, and the surrounding ring has the near vision prescription.
