Question: What is the percentage of satisfied patients receiving monovision correction for cataract lens replacement?
Answer: Monovision correction has been used in contact lens vision correction, LASIK Eye Surgery as well as Lens Implants for vision correction with and without Cataracts for quite some time. Monovision outcomes are best when care is taken to pretest and measure as much as possible in order to determine the patient's tolerance to slight blur as well their tolerance to the range of defocus that will be established by the Monovision correction. With careful patient selection and a need for no more than 1.50 D to perhaps 1.75 D of near correction, the patient success for Monovision of any type is in the 75% range.
