    New Bi-focal contact lenses just out!

    For those who use mono vison contacts, or reading glasses, new bi-focal contacts just came on the market. Wife got them, and says they are amazing.

    Re: New Bi-focal contact lenses just out!

    I think they've actually been out for awhile because my doctor wanted me to try them a couple years ago. They might have been still in the expiremental stage then, though.
    I use a full power contact in my right eye and one with lesser correction in my left eye and it helps for seeing my computer screen. I'll have to ask to try these bi-focal ones now.

    I think my husband tried them (don't remember the brand/name) before and they didn't work very well for him.

    I've used mono-vision for quite a few years and they work well for me. I'm near-sighted, so don't need reading glasses.

    Re: New Bi-focal contact lenses just out!

    The new ones from Accuvue? (Johnson & Johnson) I have those now, just went to them early summer. Was able to eliminate reading glasses, but still have some difficulty in dim light. Not sure I've adjusted/trained my eyes completely yet. My problem is trying to get the balance right between distance and reading, so I sacrifice some on both ends. Am able to get by during the day (for the most part), but some things I don't like. I know others who just love them.

    Tried a different brand of multifocal (Bausch & Lomb?) a couple years ago, just couldn't get used to them, went back to contacts with distance only and suffered reading glasses. When I went for my exam this summer, eye doc said how about trying these new ones. So I said, sure, we'll give it another shot. These new ones do seem to be better. Very comfortable lenses.
