People who have vision problems should not have to compromise when it comes to gaining clear eyesight, according to one expert who has highlighted the many benefits of contact lenses.
Dennis Murphy, executive vice president of global sales and marketing at CooperVision, pointed out that more than one billion people worldwide have presbyopia and struggle to get through each day.
The condition results in a natural decrease in the ability of the lens in the eye to change its shape to focus on close objects and means even things as simple as reading a book or looking at menu are difficult.
However, this does not have to be the case, he noted, as some contact lenses on the market can rectify the problem.
"When it comes to your vision or the way you live your life, we don't think anyone should have to compromise," Mr Murphy added.
"With one-day multifocal lenses, people get fresh lenses every day, which can represent a "fresh start" for them, the expert said.
