In brief: Monovision

Depends on visual needs and current visual acuity uncorrected, plus presence of presbyopia.
See an optometrist.

In brief: Depends

This may be an advantage as you age as with the proper contacts or sometimes without correction at all, you can see things for the full range.
I always recommend that you see an ophthalmologist for these questions. Optometrists are not as fully trained and you would like the complete picture I am sure.
