Struggling to see up close lately?
As we approach age 40, our eyes may lose the ability to focus on objects up close. It happens to all of us, and this condition is called presbyopia ‘老花眼’.
Besides the commonly known Progressive prescription lenses, there is also a type of contact lens that enables us to clearly read objects at our habitual reading distance, intermediate objects such as a laptop screen, while being able to also look at distant objects clearly. Multifocal contact lens is designed for clear vision near through far without a need of glasses.
What You Should Know About Dailies Total1® Multifocal contact lens
A main factor leading to our pupils (“opening” of the eye) constricting (become smaller) and dilating (enlarge), is the distance away from our eyes, of the object we are viewing.
- When our eyes focus on a distant object (such as driving), our pupils dilate
- When we shift our focus to a close up object (such as reading from a hand-held digital device), our pupils constrict
