MonovisionA better near sight is aimed at LASIK treatment by setting the nondominant (near sight oriented) eye myopic. This setting offers the patient a minimised glass usage. The myopic set eye will not have a clear far sight but the patient will read without any reading glasses.
Seventyfive percent of monovisio patients have satisfied results but 25% of them complain abour blurry sight or vertigo. In that case the LASIK procedure can be reperformed but the fact that the patient will need a reading glass should be kept in mind.
Monovision is a treatment technique for presbiopia (loss of clear sight of near objects). In a presbiopic eye ciliary muscle and crystalline lens, that enables to focus on near objects (accomodation) lose their elasticity. For this reason people move their books, papers etc far from themselves. In myopic eyes the focal point of the reflected light from objects is anterior to the retina. Myopic patients see near objects well because the focal point of the reflected light from near objects is on retina.With another words myopic patients (according to their degrees) get never presbiopia. The treatment procedure is identical to LASIK.
