60+ Vision Correction

Fact: just about everyone over age 60 needs some sort of vision correction. It’s just a normal, natural part of aging. The good news? You have several options to maintain your 20/20 vision for years to come.

senior-with-babyMany seniors have Presbyopia, which is the inability to see clearly at near distances, like when reading. To correct your vision to 20/20, you’re probably familiar with bifocal eyeglasses. But you may not be aware that contact lenses can correct presbyopia as well.

Multi-Focal Contact Lenses

Multi-focal contact lenses – including Bausch + Lomb Purevision and Soflens multifocal contact lenses—can correct presbyopia so you can see comfortably up close and at a distance.


Spectacles such as bifocals or multifocals are also an option for vison correction for presbyopia.

Magnifiers and Vision Accessories

Reading the newspaper, doing embroidery, building models, and seeing the numbers on small technical instruments can become challenging as we age. Brighter lighting can help with close-up work, but sometimes you need additional help.

Magnifying glasses bring fine print and needlework into focus, and they come in many sizes to help you match the level of magnification you need with the task in front of you.

Intraocular Lenses

If you have cataracts, FineVision is a trifocal intraocular lens that is used to replace the natural lens after cataract surgery. It features a series of rings which diffract light to provide — Far, Intermediate and Near vision, lending to the name FineVision.

FineVision features an innovative trifocal structure designed to significantly improve performance for intermediate vision.
The design of FineVision is different to multifocal or bifocal glasses. You don’t have to worry about moving your head to see clearly or even walking down stairs, as the lens is implanted in the eye.

Many patients implanted with FineVision don’t need to wear glasses for everyday tasks such as driving, reading the car speedometer or even using their smart phone.1

Your eye care professional will advise you whether this product is suitable for you. Any surgical procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek further advice from a qualified eye care practitioner.
