Presbyopia is a condition in which the eye's natural lens loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close. As we get older, our eyes’ lenses start losing elasticity, which means they cannot change their shape and focus on different distances as easily as they did when we were younger. The loss of focusing ability is so gradual that it may take a while before we realize we are having trouble seeing up close. This noticeable change in vision is common, unavoidable, and typically occurs around the age of 40.
If you have presbyopia, you should talk to your eye care professional about AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal contact lenses. The unique Precision Profile™ design of AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal contact lenses works with the natural function of your eyes to provide crisp§, clear vision at a wide range of distances—suddenly small print is clear again and you can enjoy a smooth transition from close-up to faraway vision. The unique SmartShield™ Technology helps deliver a protective layer of moisture on the lens and resists irritating deposits for consistent comfort that lasts from day 1 to day 30.1-5
