Blended vision is also known as mono vision. Many patients are familiar with this type of vision with contact lenses. This technique involves setting the focus of one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near. This allows patients to see close up and far away without any awareness of which eye is doing the majority of the work. This technique is tailored to your specific eyes and can greatly reduce your dependency for glasses after surgery. Though near vision is typically boosted quite nicely with this technique, patients may occasionally need reading glasses for fine print or dim lighting conditions. Customized treatment of astigmatism may also be necessary to achieve blended vision in some patients.
Blended vision is an optional package of additional services beyond routine cataract surgery designed to reduce your dependency on glasses.
