    During Monovision lasik, the highly trained surgeon will use an excimer laser to reshape the cornea in one eye to correct the distant vision and that in other eye to correct the up-close vision so that the two eyes can properly focus on images.

    Through LASIK, a highly trained surgeon can use an excimer laser to reshape the cornea so it can properly focus images, and your surgeon can correct distance vision in one eye and up-close vision in the other eye. Sometimes, LASIK surgeons produce monovision in their presbyopic patients by purposely leaving the non-dominant eye slightly near-sighted so that they can see up close without glasses.

    Monovision is a technique of creating near vision in the non-dominant eye, which allows reading without glasses. The dominant eye, with good distance vision, is left alone.
