Correct Your Near and Far Sighting with Monovision

Man Trying On Eyeglasses In Optics StoreWhen you’re nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in the other, monovision correction may be a treatment option to help you see better. This procedure corrects the dominant eye to see far away, and the non-dominant eye to see close-up distances. After this correction, the eyes and brain adjust and work together better to see more clearly when looking any distance – near or far away.

Monovision Corrects the Condition Known as  

The natural aging process – usually in your 40s – causes vision to decline precipitously. Presbyopia begins when you have problems seeing both close and at a distance. Some people suffering from presbyopia rely on monovision contact lenses or glasses to correct the condition. Others choose to undergo LASIK surgery.

Monovision Contacts or Glasses

These are the least invasive options to try monovision correction. Typically, many people rely on contacts or glasses until they are ready to undergo LASIK surgery. Monovision glasses include bifocals, trifocals, and progressive lenses which, include multiple prescriptions for vision correction.

  • Bifocals and trifocals have different prescriptions separated by a line on the lens to correct vision.
  • Progressive lenses combine the different prescriptions on the lens for correction.

We want to improve your vision with monovision correction and offer a full array of glass frames. See better and look your best with a choice of the latest designer eyewear and lens technologies.
