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.

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!
