You are right. I will raise the option Crystalens when I meet my surgeon again.
You would be better off with a Crystalens.
I will definitely take your advice to get a book to have more optics fundamental knowledge.
However, this scenario is a bit special. A few clinics announced this is the latest technology and not many clinics in the world offer this service currently. With my current level of knowledge in optics (almost nothing), I doubt I can understand the detail behind even I spend a year on it.
To be a consumer, I just want to know a bit more about how mature is this technology in order to consider if I want to have it in the near future. Have you used or heard about this technology ? Thanks
This is the description of that Blended Lasik :
" in traditional Laser monovision, the depth of field is not increased, which means there is no blended zone. This result in creating a gap of blurred vision ....
In Laser-Blended vision, laser refractive surgery is used to correct the dominant eye for distance and the non-dominant eye for close vision while the depth of field of each eye is increased. As a result, the brain ..."
I do not think it is possible. As I mentioned before you should get a book on optics. You will waste your time looking on the web without the medical background.
That 's exactly my question. Setting monovision means one of the eyes will not be clear and this will definitely lose depth perception (I cut from the description from Sharp vision center web).
There are many places mentioned that the depth of focus can be some how increased by some during this 'blended monovision' surgery. Is there such a magic that the new technology can compensate for that ? Or I just misintepreted.
Thanks a lot
Blended monovision has less depth perception compared to both eyes set at the same distance.
