Phoenix Eye Surgeon Dr. Tariq Qamar Now Offers Mini-Monovision for Cataract Patients

February 07, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Dr. Tariq Qamar of Q Vision is thrilled to announce that he is now offering blended vision (mini-monovision) to his prospective Phoenix cataract surgery patients, an affordable alternative to premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs). As a compassionate eye surgeon, Dr. Qamar wants every patient to live a life that is less dependent on glasses and contact lenses. This is why he is now performing mini-monovision cataract surgery, which significantly decreases his patients' out-of-pocket expenses while providing excellent vision correction results.

What Is Mini-Monovision?

Mini-monovision can provide improved vision and less dependence on corrective eyewear for many area cataract surgery patients. Mini-monovision involves the implantation of specific types of IOLs that correct one eye - usually the dominant eye - for distance vision and the other for a small to medium degree of intermediate and near vision. When monovision is obtained, one eye learns to provide distance vision only while the other focuses on medium- and near-distance objects. Although the adjustment period may last a few weeks, this process is relatively smooth because the disparity between the two lens implants is quite small. While patients may need to wear eyeglasses for intensive reading, sewing and other activities that require excellent or sustained close-up vision, mini-monovision can still help eliminate their need for corrective eyewear for most of their day.

Please contact Q Vision at (480) 661-1600 to schedule a cataract surgery consultation with Dr. Qamar and find out if you are a good candidate for the mini-monovision procedure.
