Monovision is one way we can fight presbyopia. Presbyopia happens when we lose the ability to see clearly up close without glasses. This typically occurs around the age of 40-45 and can be very bothersome to deal with. If you don’t like the idea of wearing those silly reading glasses, monovision is an alternative. This is easily done with the use of a contact lens or Lasik surgery. One eye sees well in the distance and the other eye sees well close up. All our O.D.’s can help with a contact lens fitting for this type of vision or check out Dr. Lahners if you want a permanent fix.
