Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact Lens, manufactured by Coopervision, is a great alternative to bifocal glasses. It can be bought by box with each box containing 6 soft contact lenses. When ordering or buying a box of Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact Lenses it is important that the dominant and non-dominant eye be specified. The Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact Lens is most suitable for people suffering from presbyopia.
Presbyopia is a very common eye condition that is usually noticed when people get to around 40 to 50 years of age. Presbyopia affects the eyes’ ability to maintain a clear image; because of this people suffering from the condition find it increasingly hard to read any reading material at close-range. People with presbyopia compensate for their inability to read at close range by holding reading materials with extended arms or by propping materials far from them. The traditional way of dealing with presbyopia is through the use of reading glasses or bifocal glasses. However, multifocal contact lenses can address the problem just as well and with even more ease of use since users don’t have to keep on putting them on and taking them off every time they need to read. Multifocal lenses are also perfect for people with an active lifestyle since glasses can get in one’s way especially in sports.
Multifocal contact lenses work by having several focal points instead of just one focal point. The Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact Lens uses a revolutionary technology called Balanced Progressive Technology. The Balanced Progressive Technology uses two different lenses, called the D lens and the N lens, which work in concert to provide better focus resulting to a clear vision regardless of the distance of whatever it is you are looking at or even reading. Coppervision’s Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact lenses make use of concentric design lenses called the D lens and N lens as mentioned earlier. The concentric design lenses use a center-distance design for the dominant eye and a center-near design for the near eye. Because of this feature, it is important for patients to know which of their eye is the dominant (D) one and the near (N) one. Patients are advised to ask help from medical practitioners regarding this matter but can also go to Coopervision’s website for help. Coopervision provides a calculator on its website to help their customers out.
Frequency 55 Multifocal Contact Lenses also provide great comfort and ease of use to its wearers. It is a soft monthly disposable contact lens which means that it is very comfortable to use. Due to the frequency of replacement of the contact lens wearers are ensured that the lenses do not build up deposits which can irritate the eyes in the long run.
