Blended Vision or Monovision is a treatment option for people with Presbyopia. With presbyopia typically affecting people over the age of 40, blended monovision has been used for many years as a reliable strategy to achieve the ability to perform near and distance tasks without the aid of glasses or contact lenses.
Blended Monovision is a term that describe the treatment of the dominant eye for distance and the non-dominant eye for close-up vision. Since both eyes work together when viewing, the brain “blends” the images together for clear vision at both distance and near, reducing reliance on visual hardware for clear vision.
Blended vision can be achieved with Laser Vision Correction or via Lens Exchange and offers a more permanent solution for those who want to be able to perform both distance and near tasks free from visual hardware.
