How Monovision Unlocks Clarity For The Near-Sighted and Far-Sighted

Monovision Are you navigating the world with one eye that’s nearsighted and the other farsighted? While many people find ways to live with this condition (technically called presbyopia), it can still feel frustrating when managing many different day-to-day activities.

Monovision correction treatment has emerged as an effective new approach to this condition. By refining the dominant eye for distant clarity and tuning the non-dominant for close encounters, monovision allows patients to find themselves with clearer vision.

There are several methods available for treating presbyopia, from less invasive approaches like glasses or contacts to LASIK surgery for a more intensive and permanent solution.


When people enter middle age, their vision often takes a sudden dip. Presbyopia, characterized by a struggle to focus both near and afar, can emerge for many people. While some find solace in monovision-adapted contact lenses or eyewear, others step into the realm of LASIK interventions.

The Non-Surgical Monovision Methods

Before plunging into surgical solutions, monovision contacts or eyewear can present a gentler introduction to this corrective approach. With many stylish frames available, Central Valley Eye Medical Group aims to combine visual clarity with modern aesthetics.

  • Monovision Glasses: These go beyond traditional bifocals or trifocals, which segregate vision enhancements with distinct lens segments. Instead, these progressive lenses weave the corrections together. This integration allows easier visual understanding, even across varying distances.
  • Monovision Contacts: Custom-tailored to each eye’s needs, these contacts ensure that while one lens frames the distant horizons, the other sharpens the foreground.

LASIK: The Precision-Cut Vision Boost

For those desiring a more permanent solution, LASIK steps in with its laser precision. By accurately sculpting the cornea’s curvature, LASIK makes sure that each eye has a tailored focus. That means the dominant and the non-dominant each work together to make sure objects both near and far can be seen clearly.
