Monovision for Early Presbyopes
Some contact lens wearers who are early presbyopes (age 40+) are often well-served with monovision as an alternative to being fitted with bifocal contacts. With monovision, you wear a contact lens on one eye to correct your distance vision and a contact lens on your other eye to correct your near vision. The lens for distance vision is usually worn on your dominant eye. The induced imbalance between the eyes is most times minimal and, after a small adjustment period, often well tolerated. When distance or near vision is unacceptable, bifocal options need to be explored. For further information or to book a contact lens appointment with one of our doctors please call any of our three Rochester, NY Cornerstone Eye Associates locations in Gates (585-328-0153), Brighton (585-244-2200) or Irondequoit (585-266-7880).
