If you are above the age of 40 and finding yourself holding a book or newspaper farther away while reading, this article is for you.
Presbyopia is an age-related eye condition that makes you gradually lose the ability to see things clearly from close.
One of the most common symptoms of Presbyopia is difficulty in reading small print like newspapers, books, labels, or things on your phone. Headaches and eye strain while trying to read or focus on close objects are also common with this condition.
Presbyopia occurs when the lens of the eye starts to thicken and loses its elasticity. Even people with nearsightedness can develop this problem.
There is no way to reverse the normal aging process that causes this condition. However, Presbyopia can be corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses. But for those who do not wish to wear glasses and lenses for the rest of their lives, it can be permanently treated with one of the most effective laser eye surgeries called PRESBYOND.
What is PRESBYOND?
PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is an advanced and effective surgery for treating patients with Presbyopia. This treatment method offers an older person the chance to experience freedom from glasses and lenses.
This Laser Blended Vision is effective for treating myopic, hyperopic, astigmatic and emmetropic presbyopic patients.
PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is clearly the most popular and fast-growing choice of treatment by Presbyopic patients.
How does PRESBYOND work?
The technique behind this laser refractive surgery is that it adjusts the dominant (good) eye for distant vision and the non-dominant (weaker) eye for near vision while increasing the range of focus in both eyes.
This results in the brain merging distant and near visual images allowing the patients to see clearly at near, intermediate and far distances without the help of any eyeglasses.
LASIK treatment is used for Laser Blended Vision. It takes about 10 minutes to perform the procedure on both eyes. It hardly causes any pain after the procedure and the recovery is very quick.
After your PRESBYOND surgery, you will find that you no longer require reading glasses to view nearby objects.
