What is Monovision laser vision correction?
Monovision is a treatment to reduce the need for reading glasses in people over 40 that involves treating each eye a bit differently, with one seeing somewhat better for distance and one better for close up. Although it sounds like it might feel awkward, many people love monovision. Some don’t. If you don’t mind the idea of using reading glasses, you may want to choose clear distance vision in both eyes and use readers when you need them. Monovision may not be a good choice for very active people who want to play golf or tennis without glasses or contacts. Approximately 40% of our patients over 40 choose monovision and 60% choose to have the clearest possible distance vision in both eyes.
