Freedom From Readers, Convenience Of LASIK!
Presbyopia is the natural loss of elasticity in the lens of the eye. This happens to everyone and usually becomes noticeable around the age of 45. The condition makes focusing on objects up close challenging, and is why we’ll all require reading glasses and/or bifocals at some point in our lives.
Monovision LASIK is a procedure used to manage presbyopia and involves correcting one eye for distance vision and the other eye for close-up. For most people, the brain naturally combines both views into one, allowing you to see clearly both near and far. This procedure can lessen dependence on reading glasses as well as distance glasses, so that you can see the best of both worlds!
Is Monovision Right For You? Here’s How To Know:
- If you have already tried monovision with contacts and are comfortable with the sight they provide, we can replicate the results with LASIK. In many cases monovision LASIK can provide superior vision to monovision contact lenses.
- If you are currently nearsighted and interested in correcting your vision at all distances, monovision could be a great option. Many people love their results and the freedom it provides. If you haven’t tried monovision contacts before, we can simulate what the experience would be like at your free exam. One note: if all you currently need is readers, we don’t recommend trying monovision unless you complete a simulation or already doing it successfully with contacts.
The only real way to know if monovision is your best vision correction option is after a thorough medical evaluation. The good news? ClearSight offers this exam FREE for all new patients. Schedule yours today to find out if monovision LASIK, or another treatment alternative such as our advanced KAMRA inlay treatment, is your best option to achieve Sight Without Glasses!
