Can I get bifocal contact lenses?

Multifocal contact lenses are available, with the lens varying in strength from the centre to the edge.

They work in a different way to bifocal or progressive glasses.  Instead of moving your eyes to look through a different section of the lens, multifocal contact lenses make light at different focusses available at any point of gaze.  Your visual system then figures out which to ignore and which to give attention to.
