What is monovision or bifocal Laser correction?
This is a technique using the laser to eliminate the need for reading glasses for Presbyopic patients (patients over 40 who need reading glasses) at the same time they are having their distant vision improved with the Laser. Although not new and widely used in contact lens fitting, one eye is corrected for distance while the other is corrected for near vision. In our office, before we actually proceed with the Laser treatment, you are fitted with monovision contact lenses to experience the vision and see if you can adapt to it. If over time you decide you no longer want to see that way, we can then repeat the laser treatment on the under corrected eye making both eyes see in the distance, requiring reading glasses.
