Potentially preventing the need for glasses after surgery
Monovision is a technique to reduce the need for reading glasses or bifocals by working around presbyopia. Monovision can be accomplished with LASIK, contact lenses or cataract surgery in San Francisco Bay area.
Patients who are seeking vision correction surgery around or over the age of forty will experience presbyopia. Presbyopia is a universal condition caused by the loss of accommodation, or the inability to focus our lens as we age. The loss of accommodation occurs as our natural crystalline lens begins to harden and lose its flexibility as it continues to enlarge throughout our life. Once the loss of accommodation begins, the patient will have increasing difficulty focusing at near, heralding the need for reading glasses. For LASIK patients who may already be experiencing presbyopia, monovision LASIK can correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision.
