Modified monovision yields better intermediate, distance visual acuity

November 24, 2014

Read the Perspective from Noel A. Alpins, MD

Modified pseudophakic monovision resulted in better binocular intermediate and distance visual acuity than conventional monovision, according to a study. However, conventional monovision provided better near visual acuity.

The prospective study included 82 patients who underwent bilateral implantation of a monofocal IOL. At 3 months postoperatively, investigators simulated modified monovision by adding a +0.75 D spherical lens to the nondominant eye or conventional monovision by adding a +1.75 D spherical lens to the nondominant eye.
