How long does it take to get used to Blended Vision?
Presbyopia, or age related reading vision changes, can cause eye strain and headaches, reduces your ability to read small print and makes it near enough impossible to do anything close-up.
And if that wasn’t enough, when you look for a solution for it, you’re bound to come away even more frustrated.
For something that impacts millions of people around the world — 11 million in the US alone — and is pretty much guaranteed to affect anyone beyond the age of 40, this is a huge problem.

Or should I say, was a huge problem.
As the latest and most advanced development in the treatment of presbyopia, Laser Blended Vision has already helped thousands of patients overcome its effects. And all while helping them avoid the drawbacks of traditional solutions like reading glasses, bifocals, and monovision.
But wait a minute, doesn’t Blended Vision work in the same way as monovision, adjusting one eye to work best at distance and the other best up close? Well, technically, yes — but that’s only the half of it. Whereas the story of monovision ends there, the story of Laser Blended Vision is only getting started.
So before we get into that and find out the time it takes to adapt to blended vision, let’s allow Mr Glenn Carp to clear a few things up:
The final word on adapting to Blended Vision
So now we know there are significant differences between the two treatments. We can see Blended Vision doesn’t adjust the eye to two specific focal points, but rather more smoothly over a greater depth of vision. This is crucial as the more natural the field of vision, the quicker your brain adapts to the way of seeing. This is why only 60 percent of people can tolerate monovision, whereas 98 percent can tolerate Laser Blended Vision.
Due to it’s milder approach, Laser Blended Vision doesn’t require a long period of adaptation after the procedure. In fact, the majority of patients adjust to their new vision almost immediately.
I’ve had blended vision surgery here. My surgeon Glenn was superb. I adjusted to blended vision almost immediately. My only regret is not doing this years ago! — Kamran, Sunday, July 10, 2016, Trustpilot
And not only that, due to its holistic and natural approach, Laser Blended Vision is proven more effective and safer than the traditional solution of monovision contact lenses.
