It typically begins to develop in people over the age of 40.

How Monovision LASIK Works

Monovision LASIK works by optimizing one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision. This is done by reshaping the cornea, the clear front part of the eye, using a laser. The dominant eye is typically corrected for distance vision, while the non-dominant eye is corrected for near vision.
