ABSTRACT
There are few studies on pseudophakic monovision even though it is widely applied. We reviewed the published literature on pseudophakic monovision. Surgeons select patients who not only have a strong desire to be free of glasses aft er surgery, but also fully understand monovision design and its drawbacks. However, other criteria adopted for pseudophakic monovision are very different. Both traditional monovision and cross monovision are used in pseudophakic monovision, and the target binocular anisometropia ranges from -1.0 D to -2.75 D. Postoperative results were acceptable in every study and most patients were satisfi ed, with vision being improved and presbyopia corrected. Complications were decreased stereopsis, contrast sensitivity, and visual fi elds, similar to other types of monovision. The term "pseudophakic monovision" should include more than just monocular intraocular lens implantation in two eyes, and further studies are required.
