Monovision is the most common laser eye surgery technique to treat people who need glasses for both distance and reading vision. It can also be used to treat people who only require glasses for reading although this is less common.
Monovision is generally suggested for people over the age of 40 years old whose reading vision has started to deteriorate as a consequence of a natural age change called presbyopia.
Monovision is also often used by contact lens wearers and most people adapt to it without any problems. An alternative to monovision is laser blended vision which is generally easier to adapt to than monovision as it results in a more natural correction of your vision. Both of these treatments do however have their limitations and Kamra vision Inlays which are a recent development should also be considered.
Monovision simply refers to vision correction whereby one of the eyes (dominant eye) is corrected for distance vision and the other eye (non-dominant eye) is corrected for near vision.
Monovision is extremely successful at treating both distance and near vision and the aim of the surgery is to leave you completely free from contact lenses/glasses. The only real way to know for certain if you are suitable for monovision laser eye surgery is to book in for a consultation so you can be assessed.
