Eye & Contact Lens: Science & Clinical Practice
This study aimed to determine the subjective driving difficulties experienced when wearing a range of common presbyopic contact lens and spectacle corrections.
Participants included 255 presbyopic patients recruited through local optometry practices.
Participants were categorized into five age-matched groups; including those wearing no vision correction for driving, bifocal spectacles, progressive spectacles, monovision contact lenses and multifocal contact lenses.
Overall, ratings of satisfaction during daytime driving were relatively high for all correction types.
This study was conducted in Australia.
