Laser Blended Vision
Our ability to focus at near and middle distances reduces around the age of 45. The lens inside the eye becomes less flexible and cannot accurately focus on close objects. Reading glasses are a simple but inconvenient solution. Conventional monovision laser surgery has offered a potential remedy but it is not suitable for everyone and is a compromise for most people. With monovision, the dominant eye is corrected for distance vision. and the non-dominant eye is corrected for near vision. Unfortunately, at intermediate or middle distances vision may be fuzzy. In addition, there is a reduction in contrast and depth perception or stereoacuity. It may also take a long time adapting to merging the images from each eye into one picture. Laser Blended Vision is a considerable enhancement to conventional monovision. With Laser Blended Vision, the dominant eye is corrected for distance and intermediate vision, whereas the non-dominant eye. is corrected for near and intermediate distances. As a result, a greater depth of field is achieved by incorporating intermediate distance vision correction into both eyes. This has a significant advantage over monovision and is suitable for nearly all patients even if you don't need glasses for distance vision. Because each eye's correction is customised using wavefront data for each patient, it can treat conditions such as astigmatism at the same time. Where monovision is only suitable for 59-67% of potential patients, Laser Blended Vision is suitable for up to 97% of patients.
