Contact Lenses for Farsighted

contact lenses for farsighted

If you are under 40 and have no problems seeing objects far away but find that your vision is either blurry or your eyes feel sore from looking close up you are likely “farsighted” & should pay a visit to your eye doctor.

The medical term for farsightedness is “hyperopia” or “hypermetropia” & is the result of your eye not having enough “power” when at rest. If this isn’t corrected with the proper lenses you may experience blurred near vision especially after prolonged near work & can lead to eye strain, fatigue & sometimes headaches. These symptoms may vary depending on how low or high your prescription is. At Contact Lenses BC we carry a large assortment of contacts for farsightedness including ultra breathable silicone hydrogel lenses.

To purchase search our website for the brand that was recommended or prescribed by your eye care professional. If you weren’t given a recommendation & you’re uncertain of what to buy Contact Lenses BC highly recommends soft lenses made of silicone hydrogel material due to their superior breathability & ocular health advantages.

Notable & affordable monthly & biweekly brands are Biofinity, Encore, Air Optix, Acuvue Oasys & Bausch + Lomb Ultra. Notable daily disposable brands are Clariti 1 Day, My Day Dailies Total 1, Acuvue Oasys 1 Day & Acuvue True Eye. Once you’ve determined the lens you want, enter your prescription parameters in the required fields. If you don’t know your base curve a good rule of thumb is to select the smallest option. Most contacts come in just 1 diameter.
