Default bifocal contact

Yup you sure can
heres a link to the information about bifocal contacts for people who wear bifocals!

its along page but now you can get bifocal lenses that work the same as bifocal glasses. the lens and the eye move so that they fall into place. Since normally one eye is distance and the other nearsited, our vision is corrected this way, having the ability to ahve both in a lens is just wonderful!

There are several options for bifocal vision correction. Your biggest limiting factor will be the cost of the lenses compared to the amount of money you wish to spend.
