Tired of juggling reading glasses with your daily activities?
Monovision LASIK is a specialized laser vision correction procedure designed to alleviate presbyopia, allowing individuals to potentially lessen or remove their dependence on reading glasses for most near activities. Presbyopia is an age-related condition that affects the ability to focus on nearby objects, typically occurring in individuals over 40 years old.
How it Works?
Monovision LASIK involves optimizing one eye for distance vision and the other for near vision by reshaping the cornea using a laser. The dominant eye is usually corrected for distance vision, while the non-dominant eye is adjusted for near vision.
Procedures for Monovision Correction
Monovision can be achieved through different procedures:
- LASIK: The most common type of laser eye surgery, correcting a wide range of vision problems, including monovision.
- PRK: Similar to LASIK but without creating a corneal flap, suitable for individuals with thin corneas or other conditions.
- IOLs: Implantable lens implants, ideal for those with cataracts or conditions unsuitable for laser surgery.
What are the Benefits?
Monovision LASIK can:
- Reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses
- Enhance vision clarity and quality
- Decrease reliance on contact lenses
- Boost confidence and quality of life
- Enable a more active lifestyle
