Around their early to mid 40s, all adults will start to experience difficulties with their near vision. This is due to a natural aging of the lens called presbyopia.
Monovision surgery (laser, phakic IOL implantation or refractive lens exchange) corrects one eye for distance and one eye for near. In monovision, the distance eye will do most of the work when looking at objects in the distance such as when driving or watching TV, and the near vision eye will do most of the work when looking at close objects like a computer screen or a book.
To determine if you will be comfortable with monovision correction, Prof. Cosar will simulate the procedure in-office with a special pair of spectacle lenses. Most patients will know immediately if they can adapt to the procedure.
