Monovision LASIK

Once a patient decides on monovision, the next important step which must be done on all patients unless they already employ monovision with contact lenses, is a monovision contact lens trial. Once dominance has been ascertained, the patient is fitted with soft contact lenses. The patient dominant eye is set for emmotorpia and the nondominant eye is set for myopia. If a patient has never worn contact lenses, than they are placed in their eyes and sent out for the day to experience monovision. At the end of the day, they return to have their contact lenses removed. A patient who already wears contact lenses, has the ability to try monovision for longer periods of time if needed.
