Monovision is a technique (used for people with presbyopia) that corrects vision in one eye for distance and adjusts the other eye (usually the non-dominant eye) for reading vision. Contact lenses and, in some cases, refractive surgery are used for patients who choose monovision. Like bifocal contact lenses, monovision adds the convenience of always having good distance and reading vision at the same time.

If you are experiencing difficulty with reading and close work or have other vision problems, you should obtain a complete eye examination.
