Good question! Unfortunately we do not currently offer a product for presbyopic patients who also have astigmatism.

Question

Is Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia made of Simultaneous Image Design or Alternating Image Design

While explaining the options I have for rectifying my presbyopia, my optometrist explained that bifocal/mutifocal contacts generally use bottom portion for near vision and top portion for far vision. I could not identify the top or bottom portion on the Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia trial lenses I received.

My question is two-fold:

1) Is Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia made of Alternating Image Design (bottom and top portion of the lens for different distances) or Simultaneous Image Design (the entire portion of the lens correcting both near and far distances simultaneously)?

2) If it is Alternating Image Design, how can I ensure that I'm wearing the top and bottom portions correctly as there are no markings on the lens to identify the top and the bottom?

The design of bifocals contacts is different from the glasses you may be used to. Instead of the bottom and top portions of the lens being designed for different distances, ACUVUE® OASYS® for PRESBYOPIA uses STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY®. This design has several different rings of powers that transition gradually from one power to the next. That way the eye/brain can find a power that helps them see at the appropriate distance. There is no top or bottom to this lens.

Question

I'm considering contacts, because I cannot wear bifocal glasses

I'm severely nearsighted, and I also now need bifocals. Glasses make me very nauseous, and I am considering contact lenses.

Do your bifocal contact lenses come in a daily/overnight version as well as the 14 day version?

I used to wear contacts 20 years ago but gave them up at that time because they were too much of a pain to deal with

Question

Can you explain why and how it's any different from using one eye to see close and one eye to see far?

Your answer: many people who have successfully adapted to monovision are even happier with their vision when re-fitted with ACUVUE® OASYS™ Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA.

Question

On your Oasis lenses for PRESBYOPIA, what does the "Low", "Med", and "High" mean on the packaging? And how does it, and the BC affect my vision?

I, along with my dr, am trying to find contact lenses to fit my needs. I'm 42 years old, and just discovered that I cannot wear single vision contact lenses, as they make it impossible to read up close. I am currently trying your Oasis for Presbyopia, but things seem quite fuzzy up close. The lenses are extremely comfortable, and I really want these to work. My dr said that there is a Low, Med, and High variation of these lenses. And right now, I'm trying a base curve of 8.4 and Low, though a different dr had me in an 8.8 BC single lens. If I go to a stronger power to clear up the distance, my reading gets fuzzier. Any help or advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated! I'm tired of wearing glasses for distance, and nothing for reading...

Question

I have very dry eyes - blink rate at 2 seconds. Would Acuvue Oasys for Presbyobia work for me?

I currently wear Acuvue 1-day moist for up to 9 hours at a time with little to no problem. I'm trying to get used to monovision but feel I would benefit more from multifocals.

Question

Is it normal to have blurry vision when transitioning from mono to multifocal contact lenses? Will that pass? If so, how long might that take?

I only started wearing contacts 14 days ago. I started with monovision and tried that for 13 days. Today I started wearing Acuvue Oasys for Presbyopia. So far my biggest problem is with distance although at this moment, I am having difficulty reading the computer monitor. With the mono, my left eye had the reader contact and it seems like my blurriness is coming from my left eye. because if I close that eye, I have less blurriness with distance. I have been wearing progressive eyeglasses with great success for ten years and was hoping to get closer to that with the multifocal. I am very motivated for this to work and am hoping for some helpful hints for suceess! Thanks!

Question

Prescription Strength

I have been wearing acuvue 2 contacts for 10-15 years now. My vision is a -10.5, (BC 8.7 and DIA 14.0) which apparently limits my options with other contact lens selections. As I am getting older, I'm noticing slight dryness in addition to beginning to need reading glasses.

My current eye doctor continues to tell me to just stick with the lens that I have. However, as I look at your site and see a wide array of options, most of which were not available years ago, I wonder if you offer a lens that would suit my current needs and that are offered in the strength that I need.

Any guidance that you could give me would be appreciated.

You may want to ask you doctor about our 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand contacts. The major difference is that 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand features LACREON® Technology. LACREON® is our brand name for our exclusive comfort technology found in all 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brands. It binds a water-holding polymer into our already moisture-rich hydrogel lens, creating a cushion of moisture around the lens. Similar to your natural tear layer, it reduces friction with the eyelid and enhances moisture retention. Watch how it works here: http://youtu.be/Jo9_JeD8pMQ. Be sure to check with your eye doctor to see if these contacts are right for you.
