Several options are available to correct your vision with contact lenses, even when you need reading glasses. Contact lenses are a great option for those who are tired of wearing reading glasses or find glasses uncomfortable to wear, and want the freedom and flexibility of contact lenses.
One option is Monovision, where a reading contact lens is worn in the non-dominant eye. A lens for distance vision is worn in the dominant eye if needed. The brain is good at sorting out which eye to "pay attention to" depending on where you are looking, without needing to close an eye.
Another option is Multifocal contact lenses. These correct both distance and reading vision in the same contact lens.
Both monovision and multifocal contact lenses are available in daily disposable, two weekly/monthly, silicone hydrogel and extended wear lenses.
