Monovision LASIK is an ideal corrective procedure for patients who have difficulty seeing both near and far and who want a permanent corrective solution without having to depend on bifocals or contacts.
To find out how monovision LASIK can help you see more clearly, call (845) EYE-CARE today to schedule a consultation with our experienced Poughkeepsie LASIK eye surgeons.
How Monovision LASIK Works
Monovision LASIK works much in the same way that monovision correction works with contact lenses. By adjusting the dominant eye for better distance vision and the non-dominant eye for clarity up close, clearer vision can be obtained at all depths. With monovision LASIK however, you don’t have to rely on contact lens prescriptions to get the visual results.
For some patients though, monovision correction can cause issues with depth perception if the brain does not sufficiently process the visual information from each eye separately, so it’s important to consult your LASIK eye surgeon to determine your candidacy.
Monovision LASIK Candidacy
As a form of corrective laser eye surgery, monovision LASIK might not be a viable option for every patient seeking vision improvement. Generally candidates for monovision LASIK are people who:
- Suffer from presbyopia
- Have experienced improved eyesight while wearing monovision contact lenses
- Meet the criteria for LASIK candidacy
Our LASIK eye surgeons will evaluate your monovision LASIK candidacy during your personal consultation to ensure that undergoing this procedure will provide you with the results you want. If you are not a suitable candidate for LASIK eye surgery, we may recommend alternative corrective procedures such as Visian ICL or Photorefractive Keratectomy. Our eye doctors will discuss all of your options including the benefits and limitations of each to ensure you make an informed decision.
