Summary The article deals with a study that examined the performance of a new silicone hydrogel multifocal contact lens for emerging presbyopes compared to other forms of correction. Study participants were asked to wear a different lens design for a week at a time. They were divided into the asymptomatic group and the symptomatic group. Results of the study showed that 24 participants had no difficulties with near vision tasks. It also found similar ghosting between the multifocal and habitual corrections for the near tasks under low illumination.
