Question

I wear glasses for nearsightedness and lately must take them off to read as well. Can both problems be corrected with one laser surgery?

Answer

Laser vision correction is designed primarily for correcting distance vision and those over 45 would utilize reading glasses to read. However, in many cases intermediate vision (computer) and reading vision can be preserved utilizing monovision or a modification of this technique. This involves using one eye more for near and the other more for distance. I would advise a free consultation with Dr. Dello Russo to determine which solution would work best for you.
