Multifocal lenses are designed for those who require two prescriptions to correct their vision. One for distance and one for reading. These are normally required for those around the age of 45-50 years and above.
Advances in contact lens Design and Technology means that multifocal contact lenses can be considered a real alternative for glasses.
COLOURED CONTACT LENSES
Colored lenses are a great way to change up your look, whether you are looking for a subtle shift in shade or a dramatic 'pop' of color. They are available in daily and monthly disposable forms and also only in single vision.
But don't worry! even if you don't have a prescription and would like a change, colored lenses are available without a prescription.
Depending on the type of change you are looking for, our Optometrist will be able to advise you which lenses will give you your desired look.
Lens colors range from Browns to Violets, from Hazels to Blues And the best thing? There is no limit to the colors you can buy!
