After the age of forty-five, the majority of patients will require reading glasses (Presbyopia). This condition is brought on by the natural ‘stiffening’ of the lens inside your eye. This causes problems with worsening of reading vision requiring reading, bifocal or varifocal glasses.
If both eyes are fully corrected following Laser Eye Surgery, then short-sighted patients who remove their glasses to read will require glasses for close up work. With Monovision, one eye is treated to provide good distance vision and the other eye is deliberately left a little short-sighted for close-up work. This is an excellent compromise, however it can take a long time to get used to. Monovision can be trialled by wearing contact lenses of different strengths. You should discuss this during your consultation.
Presbyond® Laser Blended Vision
PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision from ZEISS is an advanced method for treating patients with age-related loss of accommodation, also known as presbyopia. It offers the opportunity to achieve freedom from glasses by combining the simplicity and accuracy of corneal refractive surgery with the benefits of increased depth of field in retaining visual quality. As a surgical solution based on the naturally occurring spherical aberrations of the eye, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision extends the scope of customized ablation beyond the limits of conventional monovision laser methods in several ways. Whether for its customized treatment profiles, its visual acuity at all distances, its indications range or its immediate impact, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is a clear treatment choice for the fast growing demographic of patients with presbyopia.
