We are pleased to be seeing new and established patients for all services. Click here to read safety protocols we have implemented in response to COVID-19.

Currently, there are several choices, both surgical and non-surgical, when dealing with presbyopia:

Non-Surgical

  • Reading glasses
  • Bifocal or progressive glasses
  • Multi-focal contact lenses
  • Monovision Contacts

Surgical

Monovision can be implemented with contacts or all-laser LASIK or PRK and works very well for a significant number of people. With monovision, your dominant eye is corrected for distance vision and your non-dominant eye is corrected for near vision. Typically, the brain can “learn” to adapt providing great usable vision at all distances without the need for glasses or contacts. Since there are some people who cannot adjust or do not care for this “blended” vision Providence Eye requires patients to “test drive” monovision with contact lenses for 2 weeks. If the patient is satisfied with the vision then monovision can be recreated surgically with either LASIK or PRK. We provide this monovision “test drive” with contact lenses under the direction of our optometrist Dr. Mills.

Your Options

At Providence Eye & Laser Specialists in Charlotte, NC, we strive to provide you and your family with the best possible eye care. We always discuss all FDA-approved options with you, but only recommend those we would recommend to our families or have done ourselves. Which procedure, if any, is best for you is dependent upon many factors that will be discussed at your consultation.

If during your consultation Dr. Mozayeni discovers a cataract or the onset of cataracts, he may refer you to our lens surgeon, Dr. Trey Nunnery, so that you can investigate Refractive Lens Exchange surgery which could provide you with a more permanent result.
