Bifocal Contact Lenses

Multifocal and Bifocal Contact Lenses

Finding the right contact lenses to suit your needs is never easy, but with the help of Eye Doctors of Arizona in Phoenix, AZ, we will help you to find exactly what suits your eyes the best.  Multifocal and Bifocal contact lenses are great options for those who have certain eye issues, such as trouble focusing due to the shape of their eyes or those suffering from presbyopia, often caused by aging. These lenses come in soft and rigid permeable materials, which are worn easily on the eye. Contact lenses can be worn daily, for 1-2 weeks, or on a monthly disposable basis, depending on the type that you choose.

3 Types of Multifocal Lenses

  1. Concentric Multifocal Contacts: This type typically places the lens power at the center of the contact for seeing objects at a distance. It is then surrounded by concentric circles of near and distance powers of your lens prescription.
  2. Aspheric Multifocal Contact Lenses: The design of this contact lens is similar to the traditional progressive lens of eyeglasses. These lenses feature a gradual change in lens powers from distance to near with no clear lines.
  3. Segmented Bifocal Contact Lenses: This type of lens is closest to what you think of when you hear bifocal lenses. They are made from a more rigid material with two distinct power lens segments of distance on top and near on the bottom. With each prescription separated, you must change where you are looking through depending on if you are looking at something close or far away.

Choosing the Right Brand of Contacts

It may not surprise you that there a many different contact brands to choose from for bifocal contact lenses. We recommend you go to a local optometry office to find the right brand for you. When considering different brands, there are two main factors you and your doctor will want to consider: your pupil size and your near prescription, or "add." Otherwise, there are no tried and true rules in the process. With so many different options, you may even find yourself trying different ones until you find what works for your eyes.

Reviews From Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I recommend Eye Doctors of Arizona. The entire staff is always happy, pleasant, and helpful. Dr. Heller is wonderful... always thorough, and accurate. An excellent doctor. I was fortunate to meet his second son, Ben, who will be joining the practice soon. Now with their two offices, it is even more convenient to book appointments."
