You can use reading glasses or treat both eyes for close or distance focus using contacts, LASIK, PRK, or IOLs. This requires using glasses to compensate for a lack of comprehensive focus. Or, you can choose monovision, which grants greater freedom from glasses than these options. However, distance focus is compromised to a degree, and glasses may be required for driving. Some cataract patients choose to receive multifocal IOLs, but this may also require glasses in some instances.
An age-related decline in vision is inevitable. Fortunately, a dependency upon glasses may not be. Speak to your doctor today about whether monovision is right for you.
