Clarity Unleashed: Explore Multifocal Contacts for Presbyopia

person Posted By: OtticaLucicola On:

Presbyopia is an age-related condition that causes blurriness in near vision (approximately 30-50 cm). Let's explore how to correct this condition using specialized contact lenses. If you currently wear contact lenses and are experiencing difficulties with close-up reading, there's no need to worry. Multifocal contact lenses offer an effective solution to this problem. Today, we will explore how these lenses work and how to adapt to them.

When a person wearing contact lenses becomes presbyopic, activities such as reading and close-up work can become challenging. Although reading glasses might seem like a practical solution, wearing them constantly may prove inconvenient. In this context, multifocal or progressive contact lenses offer an interesting alternative, providing clear vision at all distances without the need for additional glasses.

These lenses are designed with a series of concentric rings that alternate between zones for near and far vision. When looking up close, specific zones of the lens are activated, and the lens configuration adapts accordingly when looking at distant objects. This mechanism allows the brain to simultaneously receive different images, selecting relevant information to ensure clear and sharp vision.

It's important to emphasize that there is no one-size-fits-all model of multifocal contact lenses, as differences lie in the construction geometry adopted by each company. Available options include soft, rigid, and gas-permeable lenses, with various durations such as daily, bi-weekly, or monthly.

During the adaptation phase, it is crucial to collaborate with the specialized team at Ottica Lucciola. You will try different types of multifocal contact lenses, evaluating together the quality of vision at all distances. This process requires patience, as the best model depends on the compatibility between the brain's image construction and the lens geometry.

Once the most suitable solution is identified, a 10-15 day adaptation period during daily use will help make vision more natural and comfortable. It's important to remember that, despite adaptation, vision with multifocal contact lenses may slightly differ from that achieved with single-distance lenses.

It is advisable to alternate the use of contact lenses with glasses.
