A study conducted at Ohio State University by Jennifer Swingle Fogt and colleagues, showed that visual performance using multifocal glasses and contact lenses is statistically the same.
The study involved 24 patients who were tested for response time, peripheral visual field perception, hand-eye coordination, and dynamic visual acuity. Performance tests were conducted using multifocal glasses and later on, using multifocal contact lenses. The patents were also given some days for adjustment between each solution.
After analyzing the results, the researchers stated that they now prefer the use of multifocal contact lenses, rather than multifocal glasses.
