I have been wearing cheaters for a few years now (I'm old, but not as old as dirt yet) and they work fine usually - unless the angle of view is outside of the lens (I do a lot of work with my hands on a daily basis). But they are a pain - falling on the ground, putting on and off constantly, etc. etc. I have good vision at distance and have never worn contacts. I have bifocal sunglasses (no script at distance and cheaters in the bottom to see the dashboard while driving). While I have never worn contacts, I really am thinking of trying multi-focal contacts. It seems to work better than the old monovision method from what I have read on the internet. Curious to hear people's success stories or not with multi-focal contact lenses and what type they are...concentric, aspheric, or segmented. I am more intrigued by concentric and ashperic because sometimes I need to see close above my head, not just looking down my nose. One concern I have is whether the close up vision is clear enough for fine detail work. Also, have no idea of cost. Thanks in advance.
