Rediscover clarity and reduce your dependence on reading glasses
Laser PresbyVision™ is a procedure that can significantly reduce a presbyopic patient’s dependence on reading glasses, eyeglasses and contact lenses. Considered an improved-upon form of monovision, a common type of surgery that corrects presbyopia, PresbyVision™ uses a laser to reshape the cornea, giving the eye greater depth of field. With this procedure, the surgeon can correct the patient’s dominant eye to see clearly from far to intermediate distances, while the non-dominant eye can see clearly from an intermediate to near distance.
This gives the patient an intermediate “blend zone,” meaning both eyes share the same visual acuity. As a result, patients can see objects that are near, intermediate and far without glasses. Also, it ensures the added benefit of preserving depth perception and contrast sensitivity. Compared to other presbyopia treatments, like monovision, patients who have had Laser PresbyVision™ tend to adapt more quickly to the outcome.
Safety with results
The Laser PresbyVision™ procedure follows similar steps as LASIK: first, the surgeon creates a corneal flap. Then, the cornea is reshaped using a precise laser. The surgeon then folds the flap back into place. The main difference between Laser PresbyVision™ and LASIK is the degree to which the corneas are reshaped. Laser PresbyVision™ is less invasive than other presbyopia treatments. It also offers the same level of safety as LASIK, a procedure that has been approved for use since the early 1990s. LASIK is considered to be one of the safest elective procedures in the world, and similar procedures, such as Laser PresbyVision™, are in the same class.
Laser PresbyVision™ is a safe, quick and painless procedure with proven success in correcting presbyopia.
Following the procedure:
- 98% of patients can read small text and fine print
- 96% of patients achieve 20/20 distance vision or better
- The Laser PresbyVision™ procedure takes less than 10 minutes to complete
