Presbyopia is the gradual loss of eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects. It is part of the natural ageing process and affects most of us, usually beginning around the age of 40.
PRESBYOND, Laser Blended Vision is a revolutionary technique from Carl Zeiss, Germany adjusts each eye in different ways. One eye is adjusted to focus mostly at distance, and a little close up, while the other is the opposite: mostly up close and a little at distance. The brain soon adapts, combining the two eyes to give much greater depth of vision and an all-round improvement in visual acuity, and meaning that most patients can throw away those infuriating reading glasses:
Laser Blended Vision is much more effective, and easier to adapt to, than the traditional solution – monovision. Monovision uses lenses (or older laser systems) to make one eye focus close up, and one eye focus for distance. This is a far less sophisticated solution, suitable for only around 50% of patients. In comparison, studies have shown that Laser Blended Vision is suitable for 97% of people.
So, while we may not be able to stop the ageing process in its tracks, we can make it much more comfortable and convenient for almost everyone.
