    Does anyone here wear bifocal contacts?

    I wear bifocal glasses and am going through a "I'm tired of wearing glasses" phase.

    What are your experiences with bifocal contacts?

    As I understand it, there is no "bifocal" contact, you wear up close in one eye and far away on another.

    I don't need my non-reading portion, but I can't stand my +0.75 in one eye without my glasses. So the idea of two different contacts sounds just awful to me.

    I've had multi-focal contacts for about five years and they work great.

    Recently I've had an issue where the contacts cause a callous on the inside of the eyelid. It's treatable with (expensive) medication, but it keeps coming back. I may have to try a different brand or get glasses. :-(
