Sara Cox, radio and TV presenter and busy mum to three children, is the new ACUVUE® Brand Ambassador. She recently mentioned on her radio show that she thought her eyesight had changed. ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses interviewed her to find out more. She said she was having difficulties “reading the very small print up close”. She was concerned that contact lenses might no longer work for her and she might have to get some reading glasses. When we asked her about it, Sara said: “I thought I might have to get a small pair of spectacles, perhaps on a pearl chain around my neck – that wasn’t necessarily the look I was going for!” Sara has developed presbyopia. If you have started struggling to read the small print or find the text on your phone doesn’t seem big enough anymore, you might have presbyopia too. But don’t worry, it’s normal.
What is presbyopia?
Put simply, presbyopia is when the lens in the eye stiffens and thickens with age. This makes it harder to see things at close range. As we get older, our eye’s lens becomes stiffer and less able to change shape making focusing more challenging. Presbyopia is particularly common in people over the age of 40 and eventually happens to almost everyone.
What can I do about presbyopia?
The good news is there are many solutions for people with presbyopia. They can wear varifocal glasses, wear both contact lenses and reading glasses, or even have surgery. But even better news: now innovative technology brings you 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST Brand MULTIFOCAL Contact Lenses.
Why contact lenses?

Thanks to ACUVUE® , you can have a contact lens that gives you clear vision – near, far and in between – so you can maintain the active lifestyle you’ve always had. You don’t have to stop living your life the way you want to. As Sara Cox says: “I don’t wear glasses to the gym…EVER”. Unlike varifocal glasses, multifocal contact lenses fit seamlessly into your busy life whether for work or play, going to the gym or out with friends.
