Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Hi David. Now that you have had lasik to get rid of your need for distance glasses you are like other people who don't need glasses to see well far away but have managed to live long enough to become presbyopic.
This means that you, like myself and millions of others around the world are old enough to need reading glasses for near tasks such as reading, reading music and threading a needle. Further lasik surgery can not "fix" this.....but simple, inexpensive, over the counter reading glasses can.
Sure, if you would rather have surgery to address this problem you might consider clear lens extraction and monovision, where one eye is set for near tasks and one eye is set for distance tasks. I, however, would strongly recommend AGAINST this course of action.
What do I recommend? Buy a bucket full of inexpensive reading glasses and leave them all over the house. This is what I do and it works great.
Does this make sense to you?
