I’m thinking of trying out multifocal contacts for an upcoming 2 week walking trip… I’ll be doing very little reading, no driving, there will be little night time exposure and so no real need to see “perfectly” with these contacts… I just don’t want to be constantly switching between my prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses all day while walking and going into stores etc. I’m not trying to skirt the system and buy contacts online because they are cheaper, but this is a very short term situation – I’m not interested in wearing contacts in my normal day to day – and I also don’t have time before my trip to do a proper fitting and trial to see what works best for me. What are the chances that MF contacts will work for me if I buy them in my exact eyeglass prescription? (Which is OD sph: -2.50, cyl: -0.25, axis: 180, add 1.50 and OS sph: -2.00, cyl: -0.25, axis: 030, add 1.50). Based on some other posts it sounds like I should maybe go lower (to low) on the Add?
I’m thinking of the Alcon Dailies Total 1 Multifocal brand, and I should add that I am an experienced CL user, just not in the past 4 years since I switched to my Multifocal eyeglasses.
