Mortimer Hirst is pleased to announce they are among the first practices in the world to offer the latest in technology 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST MULTIFOCAL contact lenses for presbyopia.
After age forty the human eye loses the ability to focus (accommodate) for near vision. People comment their arms are getting too short, they need to hold things further away to read and that they need more light to read especially when tired.
Traditionally people have used reading glasses, bifocal or multifocal spectacles. Various contact lenses have been prescribed to correct this malady but each has their pros and cons.
When we age we need stronger near prescriptions and at the same time our pupil size reduces. This creates problems with multifocal contact lenses.
The new 1-Day ACUVUE MOIST MULTIFOCAL have 183 unique, tailored lens designs for varying prescriptions, reading additions and optical zones to counter these changes over time.
Optometrist and Contact Lens Specialist Alan Saks was part of the initial launch in Sydney.
Mortimer Hirst are among only four practices in New Zealand to have pre-launch access to this exciting new presbyopic contact lens option.
