Multifocal contact lenses provide the ability to see clearly far away and up close. Whether you need to drive your kids to school, commute to work, or read a menu at a restaurant, multifocal contact lenses can help you to live a life without needing to carry around an extra pair of glasses.

Daily disposable contact lenses are the healthiest type of contacts for your eyes. If you've had to stop wearing contacts due to dryness and discomfort, daily disposable multifocal contact lenses may be for you. How do you know if you suffer from Dry Eye Disease and would benefit from daily disposable contact lenses?
