    Brief Course Description

    Contact Lenses for the Correction of Presbyopia

    Presbyopes have been wearing bifocal spectacles since the
    1700’s thanks to Benjamin Franklin who invented the lenses in
    1785 to compensate for the onset of his own presbyopia. But it
    wasn’t until the early 1980’s that bifocal contact lenses for the
    correction of presbyopia began to gain popularity. While advances in
    multifocal contact lens design have resulted in improved comfort,
    safety and vision, the potential for compromised vision still remains.
    Among the lens options for presbyopes are: distance contact
    lenses with reading glasses worn over them for near tasks (DCLs);
    monovision (MV); and bifocal contact lenses (BFCLs).
