Yes, multifocal contact lenses can actually work. As our body functioning deteriorates with ages, our vision changes dramatically. The most typical symptom must be presbyopia, which makes us difficult to focus on a near object. So, the humanized design of some multifocal contact lenses of two different lens powers, I mean, one for the distance vision and the other for near can really help. Besides, progressive eyeglass lenses whose lens power has a gradual change from distance to closeup are also suitable for you. There are two sorts accessibly, soft and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. In general, along with concentric bifocal pattern, alternating and simultaneous image make the multifocal contact lens more available to you.
