Nords, the monovision is not for everyone, that's for sure, but ubderstand that when it's successful (as in my case) you don't percieve one eye being blurry all the time. Rather, your brain integrates the images & you experience whatever is appropriate - clear distance vision, clear near vision. If you close one eye then you will be handicapped if you're using the "wrong " eye for the job, but with both open it seems to work.
I think they use your dominant eye for distance vision; so I guess if you were a hunter or marksman, for example, & you shoot "right-handed" but your left eye is dominant it could be a problem for you. I don't have any conflicts like that so I'm ok with it.
Note that in my case going with the monovision was actually a more conservative approach in that they only did the Lasik on one eye - my dominant right eye, to correct the myopia. Left eye was (is) uncorrected & works for close work. If it had not worked out for me for whatever reason I had (have) the option of having the procedure done on the left eye to "match" the right; but then I would likely have to use glasses for reading, due to the presbyopia.
My 2 cents. YMMV
