Frequently Asked Questions about AIR OPTIX® AQUA Multifocal Contact Lenses

Q: What is presbyopia?

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.
