Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question.I'm sorry it looks like your question got jumbled up a bit grammatically. Can you restate it?
Doctor DanB : Is that your contact lens or glasses prescription you gave me? Is your vision blurry up close, far away, or both?
Customer: Hi, yes that is my normal contact prescription. Recently it is now difficult to read with my contacts. Without contacts or glasses I can read just fine.
Doctor DanB : How old is this prescription?
Customer: About a year
Doctor DanB : If you're reading fine without contacts then mono vision may be a viable option for you, wearing a contact in one eye for distance vision and not in the other eye (to use for near vision). It may be, though, that you need t get an updated prescription tonhelpmthe distance vision get better. Does that make sense?
Customer: Yes... Do you think the mono vision might potentially work better than bifocal contacts ?
Doctor DanB : It depends. I think some people prefer one, some the other, but the bifocal contacts are less likely to mess with your depth perception.
Customer: Ok , thank you
