A Popular Solution to Maintain Reading Vision
To treat presbyopia, you and your eye doctor may decide to leave one eye slightly nearsighted while correcting your other eye for distance vision. This procedure is called Monovision or “Blended vision” LASIK. With both eyes open, you’ll experience clear and comfortable vision both near and far. There may be times with Monovision LASIK that you may need glasses after Surgery, such as driving at night.
People with early presbyopia often notice they need more light to read, and have to hold reading material at arm’s length to focus. Eventually, presbyopia results in the need for reading glasses or bifocals/progressive lenses for all near vision.
A condition that occurs after the age of 40. It is when reading glasses become necessary for reading when wearing your contact lenses, or bifocal glasses are needed
