Blended Laser Vision/Monovision

Senior Struggling to Read

If you are nearing your middle years, you may be experiencing the almost universal condition called “presbyopia.” Due to the natural hardening and enlarging of the crystalline lenses in your eyes, you may find reading difficult without reading glasses or bifocals. If you are beginning to hold reading material further and further from your face, but aren’t experiencing a loss of distance vision, you have options! One of the more popular techniques for dealing with presbyopia is monovision correction. This treatment involves correcting one eye for near vision and the other eye for distance vision. Your brain quickly adapts to your new vision system eliminating the need for readers, bifocals or trifocals. Although many patients are satisfied with the monovision correction, some dislike its effect. If this occurs, there are remedies available for you to achieve the best possible outcome.
