A presbyope's vision correction needs may seem difficult to meet, but consider what contact lenses have to offer. According to Mediamark Research Inc., twice as many baby boomers ages 49 to 58 are wearing contact lenses as people ages 59 to 68; and for the baby boomers between the ages of 39 to 48, the percentages are even greater. One reason is that unlike previous generations, many baby boomers grew up wearing contact lenses. And even though they're growing older, many wish to remain in contact lenses in spite of presbyopia.
