Pseudophakic Monovision: A Clinical Guide (Thieme) is a 90-page book on how to successfully achieve intraocular lens monovision using monofocal IOLs.

Achieving patient satisfaction in monovision requires the correct assessment of various factors, including patients’ personalities and expectations. The section entitled “Who Should Be My First Few IOL Monovision Patients and How Should I Start My First Case?” thus caught my interest. “Avoid demanding personalities… select preoperative hyperopic patients with easy-going personalities… start with mini- or modest monovision with an anisometropic level of about 1.00D to -1.50D…”

This book is for any ophthalmologist who does enough cataract surgery to be able to offer monovision with confidence.
