Hi Rodney. As of December 31, 2013 we discontinued ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses BIFOCAL. For minor amounts of astigmatism ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand for PRESBYOPIA can be a good choice. With moderate to significant astigmatism a monovision correction with ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand for ASTIGMATISM may be a better solution. Ask your doctor which choice would fit your needs best. Thank you for your question!

Question

Why do the lenses for Presbyopia not come in a larger diameter?

I have a large pupil and currently wear a 14.2 diameter lens. Due to changes in my eyes I now require a lens for Presbyopia. However, the largest your Presbyopia lens comes is 13.8, which does not fit me.

I have been an Accuvue wearer for years and have been very happy. However, now I am going to have to consider switching to Bausch and Lomb as you don't provide lenses that fulfill my needs.

Thanks for your question. While we are always expanding the range of sizes and configurations available, we're sorry we currently do not make lenses that meet your needs or have a timetable when they may be available.

Your comments help us assess and meet consumer requirements. As technology advances, perhaps we will be able to serve your specific needs in the future. In the meantime, your Eye Care Practitioner is the person best qualified to determine what steps to take for your vision needs. Thank you for your interest.

Question

Does Oasys for Presbyopia have the "123" .

I found out on 1/1/2014 when I ordered more Acuvue Bifocal that they were out of production. The Doctor gave me some samples of Acuvue for Presbyopia to try. They seem to work pretty good, but I do not see the little "123" to tell me which way is up, so to speak. Will the production ones I order have this? It's sort of hard to tell if they are "right side up" with out the 123.

Question

How long can you wear Acuvue Oasys For Presbyopia before they have to be changed?

I recently ordered a 1 year supply of Acuvue Oasys For Presbyopia contact lenses from my eye doctor. I received 4 boxes containing 6 lenses in each box (2 boxes for each eye). When I questioned that there should be 8 boxes (4 boxes for each eye), I was told that this brand (because they are multi-focal lenses, can be worn for one month). Is that true? I was under the impression that all Acuvue Oasys contact lenses get changed every 2 weeks.
Please advise
Thank you!

Hello KateK. ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses for PRESBYOPIA are to be removed and cleaned daily; replaced every two weeks OR worn continuously up to six nights then replaced with a fresh pair of contacts. Ask your eye doctor which wearing schedule is right for you. Keep to your eye doctor's recommended wearing schedule.

Question

Can't see small prints and can't see far

The power of my contact lens, from Acuvue2 to Oasys was stable for so many years at -2.00 for both eyes. . Last year my prescription went down to -1.75. But since 3 months ago I can't read small prints if I wear my contact lens no matter how I try to adjust the distance.
I can read small prints if I take out my contact lens but I can't see far.
Do I need Presbyopia or Bifocal contact lens? what is the different of these 2?

Hello Newyork!
Presbyopia is an age-related condition that makes it hard to focus on nearby objects, especially in low light. Typically this is noticed starting in your early 40s, the lens of your eye becomes less flexible, making it harder to adjust your focus quickly from far objects to near objects. As you get older, it can become tough to focus on near objects at all. Untreated, presbyopia can lead to headaches and eye fatigue when doing close work. Bifocal contact lenses are designed with only two zones of vision (near and far) in the same lens. Both ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand for PRESBYOPIA and ACUVUE® Brand BIFOCAL help correct the effects of presbyopia. We would recommend consulting with your optometrist to determine what type of contact lens is best for your situation. Thanks for the question and have a great day.

Thanks for your question! ACUVUE® OASYS® for PRESBYOPIA features the unique optical design of STEREO PRECISION TECHNOLOGY™, which means vision is balanced for near, far and in-between and across variable lighting conditions. Lenses are available with LOW ADD power, appropriate for lower degrees of presbyopia, while MID and HIGH ADD lenses are for more advanced degrees of presbyopia. Along with the power, a contact lens prescription will include the base curve (BC) which is used to match the curvature of the lens to your eye and the diameter (DIA) which is used to match the width of the lens to your eye.

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
