Monovision Experts in Oklahoma City
What Is Monovision?
As people age, it becomes difficult to read fine print. Often, patients will hold reading material farther away to get it in focus. This loss of accommodation is called presbyopia. Nonsurgical options to correct presbyopia are reading glasses, bifocals, or monovision. Monovision is one eye focused at a far distance and one eye focused at a near distance. This can be achieved with contact lenses, LASIK, PRK, refractive lens exchange, or cataract surgery.
Am I a Candidate for Monovision?
Monovision is a great option for many patients over the age of 40, or who are experiencing the symptoms of presbyopia. It is highly recommended that a patient try monovision with contact lenses before considering a permanent surgical option. If you are considering LASIK, PRK, or refractive lens exchange and are over the age of 40, we offer a free consultation with Dr. Hummel to look at all possible options. At the appointment, he will discuss monovision and initiate a trial with contact lenses to give a representation of what monovision would be like for you.
