Monovision: is very effective of roost people. Variations for the optimum distance (far, intermediate and near) can be obtained through single vision contact lenses or a combination of single vision lens and multifocal lens. Your eye care provider will be able to determine the power and variations from your examination. Be sure to verbalize your needs and illustrate to him/her the distances involved.
