Monovision Treatment in New York

Presbyopia (the need for reading glasses to focus up close, which generally occurs as we reach our 40s and 50s) develops because the mechanism inside the eye that changes the shape of the eye’s crystalline lens is no longer functioning adequately. As there is nothing wrong with the eye per se when we become presbyopic, treatment for presbyopia does not warrant an invasive surgical procedure inside the eye. Laser eye surgeons use the same, safe and minimally invasive laser vision correction treatments that are performed for distance and alter the correction ever so slightly to provide either a monovision correction (i.e., when the dominant eye is usually corrected for distance and the non-dominant eye is corrected for reading) or a blended vision solution that best corrects for distance while also reducing the need for reading glasses.
