4 Ways to Save Your Vision Over Age 40

1) Multi-focal Contact Lenses - Get the distance to see clearly up close & far away each day with Multifocal contact lenses, both in the regular & 1-day varieties.

2) Multi-focal Eyeglass Lenses - Eyeglass lenses with more than one power to help those of us over age 40 deal with the normal, age-related loss of near vision called presbyopia.

3) Progressive Lenses - These lenses have a gradual change in power from the top to the bottom of the lens, providing a range of powers for clear vision far away, up close and everywhere in between.

4) Reading Glasses - It's worth it to go with custom-made reading glasses (versus the drugstore variety) - you will experience extra comfort and precise vision.
