What Is Monovision & How Does It Work?
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.
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.
What Are The Benefits of Monovision?
Picture a life without having to rely on glasses, and even bidding far-well to contacts! This procedure could pave the way to enhanced confidence and a livelier lifestyle. Yet, just like any procedure, there are a few potential risks that include: dry eyes, glare, or halos.
