I tried on my first pair of bifocal contacts today...even though my vision "tested" OK--I just don't feel like I see right. The Dr. encouraged me to try them for a week.
Has anyone else ever tried them? Do you like them? Does the vision seem a little strange?
Thanks for any help.

I would like to get bifocal contacts; just too expensive.
The ophthalmolgist told me to do this instead; he actually recommended it OVER bifocal contacts:
Wear contact in your dominant eye with prescription for DISTANCE. Wear contact in your non-dominant eye for READING and other close work--that is, filled with what WOULD be the prescription for the LOWER part of a bifocal lens.
It took me about 2 weeks to get used to, but it works fine for me.
Let us know if you do get the bifocal contacts. Thye probably need a similar "adjusting" period.
