Purevision Multifocal Contact Lenses are designed to give you sharp, vibrant vision at every distance without reading glasses, bifocals or varifocals.
Purevision Multifocal contacts are made of a unique material called AerGel that lets natural levels of oxygen reach your eyes so that they stay comfortable and healthy. The lenses are also designed to resist protein and debris build up, this means your contacts stay cleaner for longer helping your eyes stay healthy.
Purevision multifocals are a silicone hydrogel contact lens so have been approved for overnight wear*. You can wear Purevision multifocal contacts continuously for 30 days and 29 nights, this means you can wake up in the morning seeing clearly. They are also an excellent choice for someone looking for high levels of comfort from a daily wear monthly disposable contact lens, with the added benefit of sleeping in your lenses should you want to.
If you are having trouble reading things up close and holding small print at arms length for a clearer focus, it`s likely that you are experiencing presbyopia - a naturally occurring condition that affects most people starting in their 40s. But don`t worry, just because you have presbyopia doesn't mean you need to wear reading glasses or bifocals. With Bausch & Lomb Purevision Multifocal contacts, you will be able to see clearly at all distances - near, far and everything in-between.
*It is advisable to check with your eye care professional as to suitability before wearing overnight contact lenses.
Yes, Multifocal or Varifocal contact lenses can correct presbyopia.
With CooperVision Purevision multifocal contacts, you can ditch your reading glasses and still see near, far and in-between without compromising on comfort or vision. Purevision multifocal are one of the very few multifocal contact lenses approved for extended wear so you can wear them overnight (if approved by your eye doctor) so you can wake up seeing clearly.
Yes, basically multifocal and varifocal contact lenses are the same thing, they contain multiple prescriptions to prevent the use of reading glasses and are prescribed to correct presbyopia.
Generally contact lenses are referred to as Multifocal, as they use concentric circles of different powered prescriptions to allow you to see, near, far and intermediate, whereas glasses are often referred to as varifocal or even progressives, as they use a gradual transition of prescriptions from top to bottom allowing you to focus in the distance, close to and intermediate, depending on what part of the lens you are looking through.
A multifocal contact lens allows you to see objects that are close too, in the distance and in the middle, they do this either by the use of concentric circles, with the various rings alternating the power from close to, to distance, or the use of a slow transition of powers from top to bottom. You can not see the rings or the transition lines with the naked eye, but take our word for it they are there.
If you have not worn Multifocal contacts before, it can take your eyes - and your brain - between 4-6 weeks to adapt to multifocal contact lenses.

The product's quality does not need an introduction as it comes from a well-respected company. My optician advised me to try the multifocal lenses and warned me that until I get to get used to them I might have slight side effects such as dizziness, possibly headaches etc. ... She advised me to give them 2 weeks to get used to them (if I can)
However, on trying them I had no problems at all. No side effects at all. My vision was back to perfect for both long and close distances. Highly recommended
Had a trial of these with my optician and was offered a box of 6 for �£81! Nice saving only paying �£43 and they are super for me, I have really dry eyes that normally sting and water on an evening and they've helped that and good vision and can read too! Distance vision slightly worse than glasses with these but just a little worth it for all the other benefits! I take them out every night at advice of optician due to dry eyes, high chance of infections leaving them in!
I don't like getting old and ending up needing two pairs of different glasses, because for forty-five years I didn't need any at all. I don't like glasses because I want to see the world, not the frames. I don't like contact lenses which dry up and die in the early evening. I don't like contacts which pull my eye out of shape if I wear them all day, every day, for more than three days. I hate contacts which always seem to be inside out and/or blurred and/or giving double vision. I don't like sticking my fingers in my eyes every morning and evening. I don't like nightly faffing with cleaning solutions. All sorted by these lenses. They work. Near, far, wherever I look, they just work, with a little bit of "routine maintenance" only. Well worth the price, excellent, and just the ticket for this lazy, picky old geezer with dodgy eyesight.
I've worn continuous wear lenses for many years and have had no problems at all until my sight started to further deteriorate. The optician offered me reading glasses to wear on top of my normal lenses... swift change of opticians and the chance to try these.
They did take a bit of getting used to, but i'm happy to say that these are liberating. I no longer need reading glasses (thankfully) and my near and distance sight is great. Add to that the fact that these are continuous wear lenses, and this particular blind bat is a very happy customer.
I do like these, really. It's just that having worn Purevision extended-wear lenses for six years non-stop and then these vari-focals for six months, I find there is a trade-off on long distance clarity.
Occasionally I have swapped to daily softlenses and find that long distance focus is better.
These do not seem to have the same crystal clarity that the non-vari-focals have.
Still a great product though; the most comfortable lenses I have used. They have transformed my life in terms of lens-care. I just flip them out once a week on average for a swift clean or overnight soak to rest my eyes.
I work at a computer most of the day. I also need to read notes and I had to find specs constantly to see anything. As my eyes got worse my contact lenses (daily disposables) just were not up to it. My glasses were also uncomfortable as I have a high prescription (+5.5). At last these lenses have got rid of all that!! They are extremely comfortable to wear and require no cleaning as such. I take them out each night but, if needs be, you can sleep in them and on the odd occasion I have done that, they have been fine. Best of all however is the clarity of vision they afford at all distances. I use the +5.5 with the +1.5 addition. It is truly liberating to be able to see so well again and well worth the money.
