Our multifocal contact lenses are specially designed to provide crystal-clear vision for individuals experiencing presbyopia, typically noticeable in their 40s or 50s. Say goodbye to blurry menus, newspapers, books, smartphones, and tablets—multifocal contact lenses offer exceptional clarity at all distances.


At Crescent Heights Optometry, we offer a wide range of multifocal contact lenses, including soft, hard (rigid gas permeable, GP), and hybrid options. Some lenses are even disposable, allowing for flexible wear schedules, whether it's daily, bi-weekly, or monthly. To ensure optimal eye health, it is important to replace your contact lenses regularly with fresh ones. Consult our knowledgeable eye care professionals for guidance on wearing and maintaining your contact lenses.

How Multifocal Contact Lenses Work

Multifocal contact lenses utilize different designs to deliver clear vision. The two main types are as follows:

  1. Alternating Vision (Translating) Lenses: These lenses enable your pupil to shift between two powers as you look up and down, providing seamless vision transition.
  2. Simultaneous Vision Lenses: With this design, your eyes simultaneously access both near and distance powers. Your eyes naturally select the appropriate power based on the proximity of the object you're focusing on. It may take some time for your eyes to adjust to this design.

Simultaneous vision lenses are available in two variations: concentric ring designs and aspheric designs.

Concentric Ring Designs:

Featuring a prescription in the center, concentric ring designs incorporate multiple rings of power around it. The rings alternate between near and distance prescriptions. Typically, at least two rings fall within your pupil area, but this may vary as your pupils adjust to changing light conditions.

Aspheric Designs:

These multifocal contact lenses resemble progressive eyeglass lenses, blending different prescriptive powers across the lens. Your visual system learns to select the appropriate prescription for optimal vision. Aspheric designs are widely popular and often referred to as "progressive" lenses.


Are Multifocal Contact Lenses Right for You?

Multifocal contact lenses offer the convenience of clear vision at all distances without the need for progressive eyeglasses. Advancements in technology have led to more successful and advanced designs. Your optometrist or eye care professional at Crescent Heights Optometry will assess your needs and guide you in selecting the ideal multifocal contact lens. We'll ensure you experience the best possible vision by allowing you to try on different lenses and considering factors such as your pupil size and near prescription. We can even employ techniques like monovision for complex vision requirements.
