is a treatment technique that is often prescribed for people age 40 and older 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.
Most people who try monovision are able to adjust to it.
Alternative treatments for presbyopia include a combination of contact lenses and reading glasses, or your doctor may also prescribe bifocal contact lenses.
