LASIK Eye Surgery for Reading and Distance - Catherine's Story That was something after investigating eye surgery and talking with a pediatric neuro- ophthalmologist. We talked a little bit about monotomic vision and I chose to have that. It’s a unique kind of eye surgery. They correctively do a focus so that one eye can read close and the opposite eye can pick up things at a distance. Now it takes a couple of weeks for your brain to figure that out, but the brain adjusts and then the eyes can still focus simultaneously on objects. In addition to that, I am a shooter so I am a trap and skeet shooter and I noticed you have eye dominance when you trap and skeet shoot. So I know my left eye is dominant and didn’t make any difference there; made me a better shot.
