Presbyopia - No Reading Glass, No Problem!

Coopervision multi-focal contact lenses at Paris Miki
Good News : The following promotion has been extended to 31st October 2014 (Fri)!

Been wearing spec since secondary school time, which was ages ago. With age really catching up fact (I am in my early 40s now), my eye deficiencies are "completed" with the unavoidable presbyopia (老花[lau hua], in Chinese). In fact, my GP told me that when we reached our magic number of 40, most people will automatically be affected by presbyopia.
I knew about the multifocal lenses (or progressive lenses) in the market that can kill two birds (ie the myopia and presbyopia) in one stone but have also learnt from a few colleagues that such lenses might not be suitable for all. Common side-effect could spinning spell.  

Thanks to a friend, I get to know about the new daily multi-focal contact lenses from CooperVision called Proclear 1 day Multifocal. Without wasting much time, I went to its partner, Paris Miki at Bugis Junction to get my eye examined and gotten the one-month free trial contact lenses. As the branch has the lenses that suit my myopia-cum-presbyopia degrees, I wear it immediately and went back to work on that day with sharper vision. The best thing is that I have no problem in viewing smaller font articles now on my iPhone/iPad and I can see things, near or far, clearer now.
