Thread: Monovision vs Multifocals?

  1. #1

    Default Monovision vs Multifocals?

    If you don't want to use two monovision contact lenses, would multifocal contacts be an option? Which is cheaper?

    That's a good question, Jester, and I wish I could tell you the answer, but I just thought I'd let you know that people are seeing your question.
    As far as wich is cheaper, I would think that it would depend on what brand you get. You'd probably have to compare the cheapest monovision lenses to the cheapest multifocal lenses.

    It's my understanding--and I could be wrong--that there are no "monovision contact lenses" as such. It just means that you would be wearing say, Acuvue Oasys lenses in one eye and Air Optix Aqua in the other. That and one eye would be used to read while the other would be for distance viewing. Is that right?

    Well so far no one has come along on this thread to say you're full of it, Autonation. I think that's a good sign, don't you?

    So you wear two lenses of the same brand, just a very different prescription in each eye?

    Maybe after you've worn those monovision lenses for a while you can start using some more punctuation.

    That's true, dda1960. This isn't the Punctuation and Grammar Forum, but making sure you've got periods and capital letters in the right places sure makes these posts easier to read.

    I don't get it. How can they be the same type of lens if some are soft and some are rigid gas permeable?

    well your power in both eyes are almost equal so i would say no it's not monovision but it seems your left eye needs to be either stronger or weaker it shouldn't be blurry at all ,go back to your eye dr. and get your prescription updated for sure
