Monovision is an approach in some cases to solving the problem of presbyopia. It involves leaving one eye slightly nearsighted while correcting the other to see well at a distance.
in vision correction surgery, the technique of correcting one eye for near vision and one eye for far vision; used in those who would normally require bi-focal lenses for presbyopia
A technique to limit the effects of presbyopia by correcting one eye for near vision and the other for far vision. Detailed Lasik and NearVision CK Monovision
The use of one eye for near focus while the other eye is for distance focus. Used in LASIK surgery and sometimes recommended to contact lens users as an alternative to bifocal or multifocal spectacle wear. See chapter 13 in this book.
Purposeful adjustment of dominant eye for distance vision and the other for near vision
Monovision refers to the correction of a patient's dominant eye for distance and non-dominant eye for near vision. This enables the presbyopic patient to see at near and at far for most tasks. We use monovision to reduce patient's need for glasses with LASIK and cataract surgery. Myopia In the case of nearsightedness, vision is out of focus for distant objects. Myopia results when the cornea is too steep or the eye is too long, causing light to focus in front of the retina rather than directly on it.
The intentional correction of one eye to be used for near vision, and the other to be used for distance. This can be accomplished by either corrective lenses or incorporated into the planning of a LVC procedure.
With monovision, the laser will undercorrect one eye for near vision and fully correct the other eye for distance vision. You will not have to close one eye to read or close one eye to see in the distance. Both eyes remain open and the brain chooses which eye to look through depending on whether the object of your attention is near or far.
Monovision is a procedure that corrects one eye for distance vision, while correcting the other eye for near vision. It is typically used to treat patients suffering from presbyopia.
A way to manage presbyopia. One eye is corrected for distance vision and the other is corrected for near vision. This can be achieved surgically or with corrective lenses.
The intentional adjustment of vision in one eye for near clarity and the other for distance clarity during refractive surgery or when prescribing contact lenses
is the purposeful adjustment of one eye for near vision and the other eye for distance vision.
a correction therapy for presbyopia using contact lenses; one eye is fitted for distance, the other for near vision.
This is a contact lens fitting technique that is an alternative to bifocal glasses, bifocal contacts or reading glasses. It may be used with either soft or GP contacts. One eye is fit with a contact lens for distance vision, and the other eye is fit for near vision. Although it is an effective technique, it does have disadvantages. For example, many people who use monovision report compromised depth perception.
Vision correction method for those with presbyopia in which one eye is corrected for near vision and the other for far, either through contact lenses or refractive surgery. Monovision eliminates the need for reading glasses, but does have some drawbacks, including decreased depth perception.
Usually accomplished with contact lenses, monovision corrects one eye for distance (usually the dominant eye) and the other eye for near vision. This is a common solution for people having presbyopia but not wanting to use reading glasses or wear bifocal lenses. Go to Top
technique to limit the effects of presbyopia by correcting one eye for hyperopia and the other for myopia.
An approach to vision correction that intentionally corrects one eye for distance vision and the other for close vision. This can be done with glasses, contact lenses, or various surgical procedures.
For presbyopic individuals (need reading glasses) who wear contact lenses. For example, with one who is nearsighted, a stronger power contact lens (for distance vision) is worn on the dominant eye, while a weaker power contact lens (for close vision) is worn on the non-dominant eye. The brain ignores the fuzzy image from one eye, and concentrates on the high-resolution image from the other eye.
The purposeful adjustment of one eye for near vision and the other for distance vision accomplished with either corrective lenses or surgery.
Vision correction procedure for patients with presbyopia. One eye is treated for myopia while the other eye is left nearsighted to handle up close work, such as reading.
the purposeful adjustment of one eye for near vision and the other eye fordistance vision. Myopia the inability to see distant objects as clearly as near objects.
is a contact lens fitting technique where one lens is prescribed for distance and the other for close-up vision. Both eyes work together to bring objects into focus. The brain selects the sharpest image for each task.
a treatment technique that is often prescribed for people age 40 and over who are affected by presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs when, as part of the natural aging process, the eye's crystalline lens loses its ability to bring close objects into clear focus. Monovision means wearing a contact lens for near vision on one eye and, if needed, a lens for distance vision on the other eye. (Ref: AOA)
The process of treating one eye (mono) for distance and leaving one eye somewhat nearsighted for reading. This allows the greatest freedom from glasses use but also has the negative of reduced depth perception and the reduction of acuity that comes from two eyes adding image information together.
Optical correction of one eye so that it sees clearly in the distance, while the other eye sees clearly up close.
