Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the outcome and success of refractive surgery in pre-presbyopic and presbyopic patients with monovision after laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of 748 eyes of 374 patients over 35 years of age treated in one or both eyes for a monovision outcome using the Alcon LADARVision 4000 laser. Analysis of age at the time of surgery, gender, bilateral versus unilateral treatment, targeted outcome, and patient acceptance are reported. RESULTS: The success rate of monovision patients in this study was 92.5%. Acceptance rate was higher in older patients, although there was no significantly greater acceptance of monovision for any of the variables studied (P values >.26). CONCLUSIONS: Monovision is a valuable option for pre-presbyopic and presbyopic patients considering refractive surgery.
