Who requires multifocal contact lenses and what is Presbyopia?
Multifocal contact lenses help in the correction of Presbyopia. At the age of 40-45, people experience blurred near vision when reading or working at the computer or other electronic devices such as tablet and mobile phone. This differs from astigmatism, nearsightedness and farsightedness, which are related to the shape of the eye and are caused by genetic and sometimes environmental factors.
Presbyopia generally is believed to be caused by the gradual thickening and loss of flexibility of the natural lens inside the eye. These age-related changes occur within the proteins in the lens, causing the lens harder and less elastic over time. Age-related weakening also takes place in the muscle fibers surrounding the lens.
Over 1 billion people worldwide are believed to have presbyopia so don't worry, you are not the only one!
