I hope this question isn't considered off topic.
I would like to hear from people who need bifocals/trifocals and wear contacts. I have a mild eyeglass prescription for distance and have been wearing bifocals for 7 or 8 years. I've considered trying contacts before but this photography hobby is pushing me toward contacts even more. I do not like looking through the viewfinder of the camera with bifocals - especially if I end up at an odd angle.
I've set up an appointment with my eye doctor to explore the possibility. In doing research, there are so many types of contacts available for a bifocal prescription that I wanted to ask what experiences any of you have as it relates to photography. Are there any particular considerations and questions I should be sure to ask when deciding which type to go with. When setting up the appointment, the aid said that he would probably start with monovision type lenses - 1 eye/lens for closeup and 1 eye/lens for distance. Given that only one eye is used to look through the viewfinder it seems that this might affect some decisions.
thanks for any info you can provide so I may be better prepared for my appointment.
