I just visited the Lasik center and the doctor suggests "monovision" correction. I'm nearsighted, and 58 yrs old. One eye will be left alone (near vision), the other will be corrected to see distance w/o glasses.
Riding with my progressive lens is a pain in the butt. First it's a pain to put on the full face helmet, then get the glasses inserted between my melon and the padding. Once on the road, I have to keep bobbing my head up and down to hit the "sweet spot". Forget about turning my head more than about 45 degrees to either side......when I crank my neck as far as possible, I can't see squat because the position of the glasses changes and it looks like I'm seeing the world through an aquarium!
So, anybody have any experiences to share, particularly re: monovision correction. I understand that your brain has to "adjust" to the fact that one eye sees "near", and the other sees "far". How long does that take? Any problems reading gauges, gps, etc.? Problems with the "halos" that I hear about?
Also, the doctor suggested PRK for me, instead of Lasik. It takes longer to heal and reach optimum vision, but guess I'll have to work around that.
