contact lenses are good for some patients. I've had the most success in patients who do not need to do a lot of up close task during the day. These are good for people on the go. People who do alot of reading and computer work tend to need clearer vision up close and do not seem to like the multifocal contact lenses as much. If you have tried 3 different brands, that means the multifocal contact lenses will not likely meet your needs, regardless of the brand.
2. If you are on the computer most of the day, you can get contacts where the focus is set for the computer. That would mean your distance vision will be blurry. You may need distance/driving glasses
on top of your contact lenses.
3. Alternatively, you can wear single vision
contact lenses for distance and wear regular drug-store reading glasses on top of that (+1.50).
4. You can try monovision
which is one eye set for distance and the other eye set for near. You rely on your brain to switch between the eyes. Some people adapt to this well, while others do not like it at all. If you are on the computer most of the day, this may not be a good option.
Regarding finding a good eye doctor, personal referral is the best from person who has had experience with that doctor. It seems you know what you like and don't like, so I think you need to find a doctor who will listen to your needs and give you all the options. It appears your current doctor is not considering the other options and only suggesting multifocal contact lenses.
The 4 options above are the most common for patients in your situation. Any doctor should be able to help you, just make sure they are willing to spend time to explain those options to you.
