• How would monovision affect binocular vision and also the use of binoculars?


    Question:

    How would monovision (reading and distance) lenses affect binocular vision and also the use of binoculars?   


    Answer:

    It is not clear whether you are asking about contact lenses or IOLs, but monovision should have little or no effect on binocular vision. With regard to binocular use, as long as you use binoculars that allow you to adjust the power of each eye, it shouldn’t be a problem. But if your binoculars only allow adjustment of one eye and you wear monovision contacts, try taking the contact out in order to balance your vision.
