Rediscover Clarity – Reduce your dependence on reading glasses!
Lens PresbyVision is a safe, quick and painless procedure in treating stage 2 and stage 3 of Progressive Lens Dysfunction. It effectively treats presbyopia, lower-order refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism and higher-order refractive errors.
Lens PresbyVision by LASIK MD is designed to reduce dependence on reading glasses in presbyopic patients aged 40 and over. This innovative procedure is performed using a similar method that is used to treat cataract surgery: The eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with a multifocal intraocular lens, an artificial lens implant. This treatment allows the eye to focus clearly on objects at near, intermediate and far distances. Although the Lens PresbyVision procedure and cataract surgery are similar, the reasons for undergoing each differ. While cataract surgery removes a cloudy lens, Lens PresbyVision corrects presbyopia and long distance vision, ultimately reducing the patient’s need for reading glasses and contact lenses.
A safe, effective treatment
In Lens PresbyVision, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial multifocal lens implant.
• The recovery period is quick, meaning patients can resume daily activities 24 hours following the surgery
• Procedure takes less than 10 minutes
• Can be performed bilaterally, meaning both eyes can be corrected in the same surgery, unlike at hospitals
• LASIK MD uses Health Canada-approved lenses customized for each patient.
Who is a candidate for Lens PresbyVision?
Lens PresbyVision is a treatment suitable for patients:
• Who wish to reduce their dependence on reading glasses, progressive lenses and bifocals
• Who are exhibiting early signs of cataract development
• With extremely high cases of nearsightedness or farsightedness
• Who have corneas too thin to undergo LASIK
For both Lens PresbyVision and cataract surgeries, the following lenses are used:
Alcon’s ReSTOR Intraocular Lens is designed to restore the patient’s ability to see both near and distant objects. It also reduces the need for reading glasses, progressive lenses and bifocals. The ReSTOR IOL's innovative lens optics allows for a wider range of accommodation, which reduces dependence on reading glasses without compromising long distance vision. Clinical trials have shown that over 80% of patients who receive this lens no longer need reading glasses for any task following surgery. To learn more about this product, visit www.acrysofrestor.ca.
AMO’s TECNIS Symfony
The TECNIS® Symfony Extended Range of Vision IOL delivers high-quality vision by bringing together two types of technologies: The first is the proprietary diffractive echelette feature, which extends the range of vision. This provides patients with improved eyesight at near, intermediate and further distances, with reduced appearance of halos and glare. The second technology is the proprietary achromatic feature, which corrects chromatic aberration for enhanced contrast sensitivity. This feature introduces a pattern of light diffraction that elongates the focus of the eye, resulting in an extended range of vision.
