For many people exploring their options in the realm of corrective eye surgery, Monovision might be the answer they've been looking for this whole time.
Monovision is a new LASIK corrective eye surgery procedure, and was approved by the Federal Food and Drug Administration just last year. More formally known as Advanced CustomVue Monovision, the surgery allows the patient to see a particular distance in each eye. In other words, the surgeon corrects the vision so that one eye sees up close, and the other sees far away. It literally takes the prescription of some peoples glasses, and carves the near prescription to one eye and the far prescription to the other!
As in the case in most LASIK surgeries, patients who have undergone Monovision rarely need glasses again. Furthermore, the patients no longer the minimally magnifying glasses for reading that other with age-related vision deterioration may still need.
This remarkable surgery does take some slight adjusting, but patients who have had the surgery say the slight accommodations they have to make to utilize the right eye at the correct time is minor in comparison to the exponential benefits they've received from better vision.
If you have trouble with your vision for objects both near and far, but have been thus far unable to find a remedy, consult a LASIK surgeon immediately! You could be the next perfect candidate for Monovision LASIK surgery, and the path to better vision is just one consultation away.
