I’ve heard that I can wear reading glasses with my contacts to minimize presbyopia, is this true?

Reading Glasses with Contact Lenses

If you aren't eligible or don't want to have laser presbyopia surgery or any of the other presbyopia treatments, don't fret. Assuming you can wear contact lenses, you have a double option for presbyopia treatment.

Typically, you wear bifocals or multifocal contact lenses to correct presbyopia. However, if you are happy with contacts but want reading glasses for close-up work, you can use reading glasses and contacts together. With any of these glasses presbyopia treatments, you can cheerfully ask, “Presbyopia, what presbyopia, what is presbyopia to me?”
