People who are already quite near-sighted, may not notice presbyopia initially, thinking their vision is improving, but eventually everyone ends up needing reading glasses or Toric contacts.

I tried these contact lenses on recommendation, having previously used standard monthly disposable lenses. Working long hours which includes some driving, some screen work and significant exercise, previously I would struggle to swap between activities, not with these, I can swap with a blink of my eyes and they stay comfortable all day and feel fresh every morning.
