Many people think that by wearing contact lenses must mean you don’t need reading glasses. That may be true in some cases but many wearers of contact lenses at some point will need the assistance of a pair of readers. You may also be under the assumption that by wearing both reading glasses and contacts at the same time can do damage to your eyes. That is untrue as there is no scientific evidence that it is detrimental to one’s eye health

In this case, contacts basically bend light and adjust the focal point within an eye so the nearsighted person can now see clearly in the distance.
As a person becomes older (usually after the age of 40) they may suffer from presbyopia or farsightedness. Even though the contact lenses helps correct nearsightedness, for distance vision monovision or multi-focal lenses may be needed to see closeup.
