In brief: Multifocal lenses
There are multifocal contact lenses and multifocal intraocular implants.
People desire multifocal lenses (contact lenses and implants) for near vision. There is also mono-vision -- one eye for distance and another eye for near. I'm assuming that this is not for you because given your age, you do not need either.

Not sure if you are asking about contacts or lens implants.
Alt are bifocal, trifocal, no-line bifocal glasses. Implants can be multifocal or alternative is crystalens. New surgical options are pending.

In brief: Yes
Monofocal = standard lens currently, toric lenses can correct astigmatism.
True accommodative lenses are in trials.
