This research summary describes the major multifocal contact lens (MFCL) research studies for myopia control, and what we still need to learn. From the first studies only a decade ago, to wearing time, commercially available lenses, the influence of BV, novel designs and more, this comprehensive review will get you all the way up to date on MFCLs.
This research showed that centre near design multifocal CL’s do not appear to reduce visual acuity at near in young accommodating myopes, but result in a slight reduction in visual acuity at distance.
Centre near design multifocal CL’s do not appear to reduce visual acuity at near in young accommodating myopes, however the results from this study suggest slight reduction in visual acuity at distance.
This study showed that multifocal contact lens wear in young adult myopes increases accomodative lag, and utilized auditory biofeedback training to improve it. The results and implications are discussed here.
