    I have a question about bifocal contacts. Do they (as the name implies)
    provide only two points of focus like bifocal glasses? I currently wear
    progressives because I need the gradual transition between near and far
    corrections - I could not adjust to regular bifocal glasses. Are there
    contact lenses that are similar to progressives in this regard?

    I couldn't wear RGP multifocal lenses because they kept slipping out of
    alignment, but during those few brief seconds that they worked out of
    every minute it was like having real eyes. Stuff was in focus at any
    distance between a few feet and infinity. If your astigmatism isn't bad
    enough to make them impossible to use, go for it!

    Cheers, Bev

    I am wearing Purevision Multifocals. They are not like bifocal glasses.
    You can see distant and near. I don't notice any transitions. It is
    very like my vision was before I needed glasses to read.

    Thanks for the reply. How about computer use? Can you see the screen OK
    wearing the contacts?

    multifocal contacts can quite easily give good computer-range vision.

    I can see the screen fine wearing the contacts.
