There are different surgical techniques to address one’s near difficulties with the need for reading glasses. Traditional surgery with laser vision correction with LASIK with monovision. With monovision, the patients dominant eye is made for distance and the non dominant eye made for reading by leaving some prescription to make one nearsightedness. A newer procedure is called Corneal inlays to correct vision. With Inlays a contact type lens is put under a LASIK flap thus acting like a magnifier to read. The advantages of corneal inlays is that one can still see distance in the inlay eye for reading unlike the monovision eye with LASIK which sees blurry for distance. Thus corneal inlays gives one better depth perception with binocular vision unlike monovision LASIK with a monocular.
