Monovision LASIK in San Diego, California
What is Monovision LASIK?
Custom monovision laser vision correction uses the same technology as the Custom LASIK or PRK eye surgery, but leaves one eye slightly nearsighted so patients with presbyopia can still focus on objects up close.
What vision problems can Monovision LASIK fix?
Monovision Laser Vision Correction is used to treat our patients in the San Diego area who suffer from presbyopia, a condition that makes it difficult for over 40 eyes to read and focus on objects up close.
How does Monovision LASIK work?
Using a state-of-the-art wavefront-guided excimer laser, Dr. Feldman is able fine-tune your vision in one eye for distance while leaving the other eye slightly nearsighted so you can still read and focus on nearby objects.
Is Monovision LASIK painful?
Most patients describe only a slight pressure on the eye during the LASIK or PRK procedure. Dr. Feldman will give you a mild sedative and anesthetic eye drops before the procedure begins to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure. Whether you are having LASIK or PRK, you will be given medicines following the procedure to help manage any discomfort you may experience during the recovery.
What are the benefits?
The biggest benefit is an improved quality of life. 98% of all Custom Monovision Laser Vision Correction patients improve their vision to 20/20 or better, with as many as 70% achieving better than 20/20 vision. That means you should have little or no reliance on glasses or contacts after your monovision procedure.
What are the risks?
The most common complications are rare and include under or over-correction, night glare, haloes, light sensitivity, loss of depth perception and dryness. Additionally, it can take the brain up to three months to completely adapt to monovision. Dr. Feldman will go over all of the risks with you in detail during your visit.
