Will The Improvement Of My Reading Vision Affect My Distance Vision?

Mr Glenn Carp – “Blended vision is designed to not look for compromise in either the distance or the near vision and the whole premise of undergoing blended vision is to maintain the good reading or distance that the patient has before the surgery and then boost the reciprocal, so in some patients there is an adjustment phase where it takes a bit of time to get used to having a difference in the eyes, one eye more for distance and one eye more for near, which is the basis of blended vision, but generally over the first two weeks of month that adjustment takes place and the patient does not feel compromised.  The vision should feel as though as it was comfortable both for distance and for near.”

Fortunately, the vast majority of patients find that their distance vision remains virtually unaffected by the Laser Blended Vision procedure, enabling them to see the best of both worlds.

The word ‘freedom’ comes to mind. I was lying by the pool for the first time last month and instead of looking for and wearing 2 pairs of glasses i.e. one to read with and one for the sun (because I’d previously lost my all in one pair @ a cost of £400). I simply picked up my book and started reading. Pure joy and pure freedom.– Mary Bell
