Default Color bifocal or multifocal contact lenses?

I checked with Lens.com, the sponsor of Lens 101 and I didn't find any color contacts for bifocal or multifocal contacts. Sorry. Maybe you can click on that red button up there and see for yourself. Maybe you'll find something else you like.

Did that help, dlawrence50? Were you able to find some bifocal or multifocal color contacts, despite ICU2's answer?

Have you ever tried monovision with contacts? That's where you wear one contact to correct your distance vision and a different strength contact in the other eye for seeing up close (the main reason people need bifocals/multifocals). It sounds crazy but I guess for a lot of people it works well - the brain just automatically figures out which eye to use for which task. It doesn't work for everyone, and I've heard some people get headaches or even dizziness with it, but you may want to discuss it with your eye doctor. If you are one of the lucky ones and are able to see well with monovision, you would have a lot more choices for colored contact lenses. Just a thought.

Are you asking dlawrence50, or just anyone who read your post? Me, personally, I have not tried monovision contact lenses. It sounds like a strange concept, too. Using one eye for near and the other for far. I can't imagine how I'd get used to that.

I suppose that's better than putting on one pair of contacts to read and another to drive or watch TV.

Yes, I suppose that's another way of looking at it. I'm fortunate enough that have eyes that work well for reading and contributing to my favorite on line forum, but if I want to drive or watch TV, I need a little help.
