Just because you've been diagnosed with presbyopia, doesn't mean you have to give up your contacts. Like eyeglasses, contact lenses now come with bi-focal, tri-focal, and progressive options. Bi-focal contacts offer the same comfort and convenience of other contact lens but with the added benefit of allowing you to forego reading glasses.
Bifocal and multifocal contact lenses are made with two or more prescriptions in each lens. This allows people to see clearly both near and far. Lenses like these for presbyopia are designed with "alternating vision" or "simultaneous vision" functions. Alternating vision lenses have a split-lens design, where the separation between prescriptions is made with an obvious line between the top and bottom of the lens. Simultaneous vision lenses require the eye to look through both prescriptions at the same time, and allow the eye to select the correct prescription power.
