Yes! In fact, if you are 40 or older and can take your glasses off to read, LASIK may abruptly precipitate your need for reading glasses. If you are in your 20’s or 30’s you’ll have some time before this happens. For some, monovision (one eye sees near, the other sees far) is an alternative.
This approach works in some patients. A contact lens trial for monovision is always required. Clear lensectomy is another way to address both far and near vision concerns after age 40.Discuss these options at your evaluation.
