Is monovision typically prescribed to myopics? I'm -8.25 and -6.5.

Fairly common for both myopes and hyperopes who wear contacts and who are also presbyopes (over age 40); not common below that age, and not common in glasses.

Since you were essentially "born" with monovision (your right eye focused closer to you than your left) if you're over 40 it would be common to "undercorrect" your right eye to help at near.
