MONOVISION



Monovision

In the LASIK, LASEK and PRK procedures, one eye can be partially corrected, while the other eye is fully corrected. The partially corrected eye can then be used for reading while the fully corrected eye is used for distance. This means that only one eye at a time is seeing clearly, depending on whether you are looking close or far away. This procedure is only done on patients over 40, usually after a trial of monovision with contact lenses. This is a special situation which should be discussed with your doctor if you are interested .
