Thread: Lens Suggestion

    Default Lens Suggestion

    I have two issues. I have an astigmatism and need bifocals...
    Both eyes are the same script - Pow 0 Cyl -2.25 Axis 90..

    While I recently started wearing contacts again after a 30 years of wearing glasses...

    Is there any lens that will handle both of my issues?

    I guess you should consult a good optometrist to find a satisfactory solution. I recommend Evergreen Eye Care in Vancouver. I'm sure they'll be able to help you out!! Talking out of experience.

    Do you live in or near Vancouver so you can try out Hanna J's suggestion?

    I tried finding some bifocal toric lenses to handle both issues, and I found something called Proclear Multifocal Toric lenses. You can read about them here: http://www.lens.com/contact-lenses/lens397.asp

    Arrow Proclear Multifocal Toric

    Hi I am a fully qualified optician and owner of the website www . QualityEyes . com

    There really is only one lens on the market to resolve your issue, this is the Proclear Multifocal Toric manufactured by Coopervision.

    This is a monthly disposable contact lens and can correct both presbyopia and astigmatism all in one lens, thus resolving both your issues.

    You should certainly visit your local contact lens optician to be properly fitted with contact lenses as they will take specific measurements to ensure both comfort and vision is perfect.

    The only downfall is that from a high street retailer these lenses can be pretty expensive, so after your visit to the opticians take a copy of the prescription and lens make and visit www . QualityEyes . com for the same lenses but at a much more reasonable price.

    Hope I have answered your question in enough detail, for more info you can visit www . QualityEyes . com.

    He has made a very good choice for this particular patient as this is one of the only lenses on the market that meets all of their needs (multifocal toric).

    But as always would reccomend heading down to thier local opticians and being fitted with this type of lens and trialing them before making any final decisions as oxygen transmission and water content will be the final factor to whether they are the best choice for this particular individual.

    If for any reason this lens wasn't suitable another alternative would be to consider monovision in which one eye would be corrected for far and the other for near.

    I completely agree. Make sure you see an eye doctor for a professional fitting when considering contact lenses.

    NCIC105 would love to know what path you decided to choose, multifocal contacts, monovision or good old fashion spectacles

    I use the Canon 70-200 2.8L , without the IS. It is a great lens, but it is heavy. If you are going to use a long L series lens, get a 5lb weight and practice holding it like you would a lens (this lens weighs about 3lb). That will help build and condition your arm muscles for taking steadier shots. I also use a Manfrotto 685B monopod attached to the lens, not the camera. I use mine not only for pets and wildlife, but for doing portraits too.

    You Lens side power is very less so some points are keep in mind :
    1) you should sleep 7 to 8 hours in a day
    2) you should contact to experience ENT doctor.
    3) You should wear light frame so it's easy for wear

    For astigmatism Soflens Multifocal lens are best choice to use. These lenses are offered by Bausch and Lomb. These lenses are mainly used for astigmatism, presbyopia, myopia and hyperopia.

    I think you should consult an optometrist about the problem; still I would ask my doctor at Killeen Vision Source and will get back to you.
