Are monovision contact lenses difficult to get used to?

I have heard that there are monovision contacts for people who are nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in another. It sounds so strange. I wonder if they are difficult to get used to?

    Yes. It is a little difficult to get used to monovision contact lenses because one of the lenses is used for near and the other is for far. It usually takes several weeks to get used to monovision contact lenses. To get used to them as soon as possible you should wear them as much as possible, but within the time schedule given by your eye doctor.

    With monovision contacts, the two eyes still work together as a team to see clearly at all distances; it's just that one eye is clearer than the other, and the "stronger eye" will depend on whether you are looking at something far away or up close. Though monovision might sound difficult to adjust to, most people adapt very well and eventually don't even notice which eye is their "distance eye" and which is their "near eye.
