With the average age of our population on the rise public demand for near correction is increasing as well. One option available over multifocal spectacles is to fit the patient with a contact lens monovision system. With one eye corrected for near and the other at far central visual acuity suppression allows the viewer to discount images out of focus in one eye and maintain a quality image in the eye focused at a given distance.
