What If I Have Presbyopia?

If you have presbyopia, Monovision may be the solution to allow for both near and far vision so that you are able to read books and do computer work, as well as drive your car and watch movies. Utilising one of several Laser Vision Correction techniques, your dominant eye is set for distance focus while the other eye is set for near focus.

Although it is not a perfect solution for presbyopia, most patients who choose Monovision find it satisfactory. Minor trade-offs for the procedure include some difficulty with high performance sports, night driving and intricate close work. The alternative will be going for Full Correction to allow both eyes to see far clearly and to wear reading glasses for near.
