Monovision is the optical status of having one eye focus at distance and the other eye focused at near. This optical condition allows the relief of presbyopia symptoms.  One eye is corrected for near and one eye is corrected for the distance, and it’s not the contact lens material that’s different usually, but just the strength of the contact lens. This is a very helpful technique for patients who are over 40 who need reading glasses, and rather than having to wear contact lenses with reading glasses on top, you can correct one eye for the distance and one eye for near.
