What Is Monovision & How Does It Work?

Monovision LASIK & How It Works

Monovision LASIK works by optimizing one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision. This is done by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, using a laser. The dominant eye is typically corrected for distance vision, while the non-dominant eye is corrected for near vision.

Monovision LASIK, a specialized laser corrective procedure, aids individuals dealing with presbyopia. Presbyopia, an age-related hurdle affecting individuals over 40, complicates the focus on nearby objects within arm’s reach.

What Conditions Can Monovision LASIK Treat?

  • Presbyopia
  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

Beyond presbyopia, Monovision LASIK extends its solutions to a range of visual challenges such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. Multiple corrective procedures include:

  • LASIK: A safe, and effective laser eye surgery capable of addressing a wide array of vision issues, including monovision.
  • PRK: Similar to LASIK but an alternative option suitable for those with thin corneas or specific eye conditions hindering LASIK eligibility.
  • ICLs: Implantable lens implants, artificial lenses embedded inside the eye, cater to individuals with conditions like cataracts that are beyond the scope of laser eye surgery.

What Happens During the procedure?

During the monovision procedure, one of your eyes will be corrected for clear distance vision and the other eye will be corrected for clear near vision. For most monovision patients, the brain quickly adapts, without any conscious effort by the patient. If monovision is an option for you, the doctor will provide you with additional details during your exam.
