What about my reading vision? Can anything be done to correct that?
People in their mid-40’s and older who have good distance vision in both eyes require reading glasses for near tasks due to a normal aging process in the eye called presbyopia. Presbyopia occurs as the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible with age, causing difficulty focusing up close. Monovision LASIK is a procedure some patients choose which adjusts one eye for distance and the other eye for reading. Dr. Shabbir Khambati and his technical staff will present this option to you if you are over 45 and are interested in being glasses-free for both distance and near vision.
