Are you over 40 and noticing changes in your vision??
As they age, most people experience a reduction in the ability to focus on close range items, such as reading material or a computer screen. Referred to as presbyopia, this process usually begins to create noticeable vision changes between the ages of forty and fifty, and is the result of a loss of flexibility in the lenses of the eyes. At Katzen Eye Group, in the Baltimore, Maryland area, we help treat these changes in vision with monovision LASIK vision correction.

 

What Is Monovision?
Many people experiencing presbyopia use bifocals—glasses with lens insets in the bottom to correct close vision, while the rest of the lens is structured to aid distance vision. Another way to treat presbyopia is through monovision.
Monovision can be achieved with contact lenses or with corrective surgery such as LASIK. Rather than having multiple lens prescriptions in a single pair of eyeglasses, monovision results in having one eye corrected so that its close distance vision is more efficient, while the other eye is adjusted for distance vision. By using one eye or the other, you can focus on close items or items in the distance. Though it sounds uncomfortable or difficult, it generally only takes a short amount of time to adjust to.
 
Possible Disadvantages of Monovision
 
In general, monovision is a comfortable and convenient way to treat presbyopia without having to resort to the inconvenience of glasses. In some cases, monovision treatment results in a slight loss of depth perception, since the eyes are optimized for different vision distances. There may be some blurriness in the non-optimized eye, as well, much like trying to view items at a distance through the section of your bifocals that are meant for close vision.
For additional information about monovision LASIK and how it can help improve your vision, please contact Katzen Eye Group in Baltimore, Lutherville and Towson, Maryland to schedule a LASIK consultation.
