do bifocal contacts vary in their rate of distance sharpness or does it depend on the person?

They vary: Bifocal contacts have a number of parameters such as the amount of the light that is focused at near versus far and the amount of power for near focusing. It often takes a few visits with the eye doctor to sort out the best combination for you.
