How monovision treatment from your ophthalmologists in Manhattan, NY, can help you see better.
Do you have problems with both near and far vision? Have you been told you are not a good candidate for LASIK? If so, you need to learn about a revolutionary ophthalmic surgery option known as monovision.
Dr. Christopher Coad and Dr. Jay Yoon at Chelsea Eye Ophthalmology in Manhattan, NY, provide a wide range of vision services, including monovision, to help you see better.
Monovision is a unique procedure to correct one eye to see near objects, and the other eye to see objects which are far away.
Everyone has a dominant eye, much like a dominant hand. Your doctor will typically correct the dominant eye to see objects far away. The non-dominant eye is corrected to see objects near to you.
Both of your eyes work together, and your brain begins to see the clearer objects and block out the blurred objects.
Monovision can be accomplished with either contact lenses, glasses, or corrective surgery. Contact lenses can be used as a trial to see if you adjust well to monovision.
If you are adjusting well to the monovision created by contact lenses, then you can have surgery if you wish. Surgical options to create monovision include laser surgery or lens insertion.
If you choose glasses to create monovision, your ophthalmologist may recommend bifocals, trifocals, or progressive lenses, which contain several different vision correction prescriptions.
Monovision correction may require adjustment time, so remember to:
- Keep doing your regular activities
- Give yourself time to adjust
- Try wearing glasses to help with near vision
- Talk with your ophthalmologist if you notice blurred vision or depth perception issues
