Blended vision

Blended vision is a way of reducing dependence on glasses.

It involves setting one eye in focus for distance vision and setting the second eye to focus slightly nearer. Most people find that this gives satisfactory distance and near vision for most daily activities. The brain then is able to switch between the eyes to be able to see at both distances.

As with multifocal lenses people with blended vision have found that reading glasses can help with prolonged reading in dim light, though intermediate vision (e.g. reading a computer screen) is usually better than with multifocal lenses.
This form of focusing combination does not have the problems with glare that multifocal lenses can cause.
If you would like to discuss how this technique can allow you to be less dependent on glasses please book an appointment to discuss this with our eye surgeon.
