What is Monovision?
Monovision is a technique where one eye (usually the dominant eye) is corrected for clear distance vision, and the other eye is corrected for comfortable near vision. Monovision allows a person to see close objects clearly with one eye and distance objects clearly with the other eye. The vision part of the brain tends to filter out the image from the eye that is not in clear focus, so those who have monovision eventually do not pay attention to the eye that is not as clearly focused. Those who have monovision are often able to see well enough both at distance and near to do things at any age without corrective lenses.
Monovision Correction at Central Valley Eye
Monovision can be achieved with contact lenses or with vision correction procedures
by correcting the non-dominant eye for near vision and the dominant eye for distance vision. If you are considering a vision correction procedure, your docto
r can put you into monovision contact lenses so you can try it before you permanently correct your eyes with monovision.
How Long Does it Take to See Results?
Most people’s brains automatically get used to monovision within a couple of weeks or months. In our experience, most people over the age of 40 to 45 who try monovision and take the time to fully become accustomed to it, like it and find it very useful.
