Monovision

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

Question: Is it possible or practical to get monovision glasses? If I get lens implants and need one glass for reading and the other for distance, would that work? Would it be similar to monovision contacts? Has anyone heard of this?

Answer: I'm assuming your having cataract surgery. I am an optician and sometimes I see rx's for glasses over monovision contacts to correct the near eye for distance (for driving at night...etc). Monovision glasses aren't going to be very helpful due to prism imbalances from the lenses being different powers. One image would be blurred and when you look away from the center of the lens you may see double or feel eye strain. My suggestion would be to go to your eye care professional and see if they can use trial lenses to simulate the effect so you know what it would be like.
