Tired of switching between reading glasses and contact lenses? Fret not, Johnson and Johnson has come up with the groundbreaking Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses especially for people experiencing presbyopia.
Presbyopia is a natural phenomenon that happens to everybody. Every year, the crystalline lens in the eyes loses its elasticity. As a consequence, the capacity to change focus without strain is reduced. This increases every year. Most people upon reaching the age of 40 find it increasingly hard to focus sharply on objects at close distances. It is a progressive condition. For example, finding oneself reading the restaurant menus, or the newspaper at arm’s length is a sign of presbyopia. The eyes need a little help, sooner than later.
Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses are the only contact lenses equipped with Pupil Intelligent Design – five invisible, concentric viewing rings or zones much like a bull’s eye target. These concentric rings allow far and near objects into sharp focus at the same time. Because of the crystal clear visual transition from zone to zone, Acuvue Bifocal wearers get effortless sharp vision from far to near and in between – see everything in an instant. Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses enable lens users to shift focus between near and far distances without any hassle.
Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses have inside-out marks which help make lens insertion easier by letting wearers see if the lenses are inside out. Acuvue Bifocal lenses come with visible tints to assist wearers in locating the lenses in the case or on the finger. They shield the eyes from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. They block approximately 82% of UV-A radiation and 97% of UV-B radiation. The clear edge design provides exceptional comfort.
Aside from presbyopes, Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses are highly recommended to people who don’t want the added burden of carrying reading spectacles wherever they go. Acuvue Bifocals are suitable for people whose jobs or activities require excellent vision, for example, playing golf, driving or simply walking down the street.
The Acuvue Bifocals can be worn in two convenient ways – daily wear for up to two weeks or continuous wear for up to six nights. The former means that the lens user wears them during the day, takes them out at night, cleans and disinfects and wears the same lenses the next morning. This process is repeated for two weeks and then the contact lenses are discarded and replaced with a new pair. On the other hand, continuous wear for up to six nights simply means wearing the contact lenses all day and all night even while sleeping for six nights and seven days consecutively and then thrown away and replaced with a fresh pair.
With reading glasses, everything beyond the reading area is hazy so a wearer has to change glasses or peep over the reading spectacles to see distant objects. With bifocal glasses, the image appears to “jump” as the wearer moves from distance to near and there is an awkward line across the glasses. With Acuvue Bifocal contact lenses, a wearer is guaranteed outstanding vision so he can see clearly. He can enjoy optimum vision at all distances.
