Stay Sharper Than Ever With 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses


Are you in your 40s, experience blurry visions, or having difficulties reading small fonts and/or having to hold your reading materials or mobile phones at arm’s length in order to see clearly? If so, you might be suffering from the onset of presbyopia, or what we Chinese known as “lao hua yan (老花眼)”.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia is an age-related condition associated with a loss of elasticity of the lens inside the eye, which results in a reduced ability to see near distances.

It occurs gradually and naturally to everyone above the age of 40, even to those who have undergone LASIK surgeries for myopia before the onset of Presbyopia.

People with Presbyopia struggle with performing the simplest of tasks, some of which include difficulty in reading fine print, strained eyes and headaches after focusing on near objects for prolonged periods, and the need to hold reading material at an arm’s distance to focus properly.

Wait, but I’m still in my 30s?! How is it that I could be suffering from Presbyopia? Unfortunately, getting presbyopia at an earlier age is no longer uncommon these days, probably due to our extensive use of computers and other digital devices.

Earlier in April, I had the opportunity to attend the media launch of 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL contact lenses and meet Queen of Caldecott Hill and brand ambassador, Zoe Tay.

At the event, we were first brought through an experiential journey beginning with Zone 1 that highlighted the key milestones individuals in their 40s could embrace unhampered by aging issues, before moving to Zone 2 which brought us up close with how our world could like with Presbyopia and how it could affect our lives by the time we hit 40s.

Zone 2: This is how your typical street sign (above) and menu (below) would look like if one has Presbyopia.

Zone 3 was where we get to learn from the eye care professionals the science behind Presbyopia as well the ACUVUE® range of MULTIFOCAL contact lenses.

A recent survey conducted in Mach 2016 revealed that 85% of people in Singapore between 40-55 years old have experienced potential symptoms of Presbyopia but only 27% would seek immediate professional help. And 59% of the respondents were unsure, or have wrong perception that Presbyopia is preventable.

Survey results further showed that 70% of the above age group are now looking to wear multifocal contact lenses with comfort and visual acuity being the top two criteria.

Ah Jie’s very close to where I was sitting!

Ah Jie Zoe Tay, who first realised she was suffering from Presbyopia a few years ago, also gave candid insights into what it was like living with Presbyopia and how she overcame it to fully embrace life as a mother, wife and actress after been introduced to the new 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL lenses by her optometrist.

We managed to take a group photo with brand ambassador Zoe Tay. Yay!

“As an actress and a mother of three, I wanted to find an effective solution that wouldn’t compromise my lifestyle. Ever since I tried 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses, my vision has stayed sharp and my eyes feel comfortable even at the end of a long day. Presbyopia happens to everyone at some point in our lives, it is nothing to be embarrassed about and it should not hold us back from experiencing the best of life. ”

1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses are daily disposable contact lenses designed for maximum care, comfort and convenience for wearers to continue living life to the fullest with unhampered moments as their vision evolves with presbyopia.

Powered by the revolutionary IntuiSight™ technology, 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses come in 183 uniquely optimized optical designs addressing the natural variation in pupil sizes dependent on age and refractive error. The IntuiSight™ technology finds the optimum fit for people with presbyopia, to bring them clear vision at near, intermediate and far distances. The 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses are available in the prescription range of – 9.00 to +6.00, with Low, Mid, and High ADD powers.

As the eye’s natural tear film stability reduces significantly with age, presbyopia sufferers are at a greater risk of eye dryness and discomfort. These lenses are also fitted with proprietary LACREON® technology that locks in the wetting agent within the lenses to provide 20 hours cushion of moisture for superior comfort and  internationally recognised standard of UV protection for healthy eyes.


Contact lenses are medical devices, so it is essential that a comprehensive eye health examination takes place before purchase. The eye care professionals at each ACUVUE® Experience Centre specialize in understanding the wearer’s lifestyle, eye health and vision correction needs with the aim of delivering the best contact lens wearing experience.

If you think you are having symptoms of presbyopia and would like to try out the latest 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses, I would strongly encourage you to get a complimentary eye examination (worth S$60) by one of the qualified eye care professionals here.
