A new way to see the world, contact lenses that help correct all types of vision

2021 12 June

We are living in a world where technology is continually advancing and our ability as humans to innovate and improve quality of life knows no bounds. In the optometric, optical and eye world, this is no different, as our pursuit of “perfect” vision in glasses, contact lenses and from surgical interventions are constantly being upgraded.

Our increased knowledge of how the eye functions and our ability to enhance vision through cutting edge machinery and equipment means that we are able to offer an improved quality of life for almost everybody. And now, there are new contact lenses available in Melbourne that can correct long-sightedness, short-sightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia all at once.

Just a recap of what this means. 

  • Long-sightedness is when you are able to see things clearly in the distance but up close is harder to focus. It means that light is focused by the cornea (front of eye) behind the retina (back of the eye)
  • Short-sightedness is when things further away are not as clear or sharp, but up close is comfortable and in focus. Light is focused by the cornea, in front of the retina
  • Astigmatism is when the cornea is irregular in curvature, causing a splitting of light rays when focusing onto the retina. Thus your vision is slightly blurry, fuzzy or distorted at all distances both near and far but particularly noticeable at night time with headlights or traffic lights having a flare or halo effect
  • Presbyopia is age-related changes that cause the lens in the eye to stiffen and therefore make it harder to focus up close. It is the classic “arms are too short” problem, where you have to push things further away to read a book, ingredients or instructions on a packet or your phone. This generally starts to affect people 40 years and older.

Glasses obviously can correct all of these different types of visual issues separately or all at the same time, and now there is a new contact lens that is able to correct either long/short-sightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia all together.

This contact lens is custom made for over 200,000 unique prescription combinations. It is a daily wear, monthly replacement contact lens that is very comfortable to wear, has natural wettability of the lens and very breathable for the eyes.

It has a balanced progressive technology ie. It is a multifocal contact lens that allows you to see clearly at all distances: near, intermediate and far.

This new contact lens can truly change the way you see the world, all with the comfort and convenience that a contact lens brings along with clarity of vision. And because of the extraordinary number of prescription combinations this contact lens can correct, it means that so many more people can be helped with their vision needs.
