Monovision Laser Eye Surgery

St Paul’s Laser Vision has been conducting successful Monovision treatments in Liverpool for over 25 years. Clients trust our world-leading consultants and monovision laser eye surgery in partnership with the NHS.

As we get older, many of us find ourselves grappling with presbyopia—a common age-related condition that makes it challenging to focus on nearby objects. Reading glasses become a constant companion, but what if there was a way to reduce that dependence while still enjoying clear vision at different distances?

Monovision laser eye surgery offers a unique solution, allowing individuals to regain visual balance without the constant need for reading glasses.

    How Monovision laser eye surgery works

    Monovision laser eye surgery is an innovative approach to treating presbyopia, utilising the power of laser technology to reshape the cornea and achieve different prescriptions in each eye. This intentional imbalance allows one eye to be optimized for distance vision, while the other eye is set for near vision. The brain adapts and naturally selects the eye best suited for specific tasks, providing clear vision at varying distances.

    Who is suitable for monovision treatment?

    Suitability criteria for monovision treatment is the same as those for PRK and LASIK. Please see “Am I suitable for Laser eye surgery section” to assess your possible suitability.

    Before Monovision laser eye

    1. Welcome

    You’ll be seen by your surgeon who will review your clinical measurements, examine you and answer any additional questions that you may have.

    2. Drops

    Local anaesthetics eye drops will be instilled in the eyes to ensure they are completely numb and comfortable throughout the procedure.

    3. Treatment

    Depending on the type of laser your surgeon recommends, a surgical clip keeps the eye open and the laser is orientated over the treatment area. The laser treatment is then carried out in the cornea gently, at which point vision becomes blurry. The surgeon may apply a contact lens for comfort in some cases.

    4. Aftercare

    You’ll be taken to a rest room to relax with your eyes closed. The consultant surgeon will examine your eye 20 to 30 minutes later.

    5. Future

    You’ll be given your post-surgery drops and instructions and a follow appointment up will be arranged for the next day.
