Monovision

When you have LASIK, you and your doctor may decide to leave one eye slightly nearsighted. This is called monovision and may allow you to maintain your ability to read without glasses after you begin to experience presbyopia (the need for reading glasses as you get older). Your other eye will be fully treated for distance vision.

Who Is a Candidate for Monovision?

Monovision LASIK is a compromise; to achieve better near vision, you have to give up some sharpness in your distance vision. Monovision is helpful for near-vision tasks such as scanning a menu or article, but not for reading fine print or reading for a prolonged period of time.  Monovision LASIK may not be suitable for active individuals, such as those who play golf or tennis, or who drive a great deal at night.

During your laser vision correction consultation, you and your eye doctor will decide which choice is best for you.
