    Refractive Mgmt/Intervention

    Relative to refractive surgery, the term “monovision” denotes targeting the refraction of one eye for distance and one eye for near vision. This technique may be offered particularly to patients with presbyopia. Although it does not give the sharpness of vision possible when both eyes are targeted for distance, it gives greater range of vision and may decrease the need for glasses.
