Vision impairments are not at all uncommon, but as commonplace as they are, each case is unique. With annual eye exams and vision tests, you can keep up with your vision needs as they develop and change with time, and your ophthalmologist can adjust your prescription as needed. Certain types of vision problems can be treated with specialty lenses that address specific problems, which is often the case with presbyopia. Here at Rockport Eye Associates we can offer you solutions like monovision in Aransas Pass TX to help.
Presbyopia is a vision condition where it is difficult to see both up close and faraway. It is a bit of a combination between nearsightedness and farsightedness. As a result, it can be difficult to find a single pair of lenses that can provide you with the different magnified strengths you need in order to see clearly at both distances. With glasses, presbyopia is often treated by using bifocals. Bifocals split the lens down the middle horizontally. If you look at the bottom half of the lens, you can see up close. If you look at the upper half of the lens, you can see far away. People with presbyopia may wear contacts for faraway distances but still wear reading glasses to see up close. Monovision lenses look to change that. Here at Rockport Eye Associates we can give you the eye exam you need while also paying attention to factors that may determine whether monovision lenses are right for you.
Monovision lenses are a great solution for people who wish to reduce their need for “readers” or glasses that help them see up close, but may not quite benefit from bifocal lenses. With monovision in Aransas Pass TX, 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.
