Lens PresbyVision

Rediscover Clarity – Reduce your dependence on reading glasses!

Lens PresbyVisionTM 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 PresbyVisionTM 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 PresbyVisionTM procedure and cataract surgery are similar, the reasons for undergoing each differ. While cataract surgery removes a cloudy lens, Lens PresbyVisionTM corrects presbyopia and long distance vision, ultimately reducing the patient’s need for reading glasses and contact lenses.

A safe, effective treatment

In Lens PresbyVisionTM, 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 PresbyVisionTM?

Lens PresbyVisionTM 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 PresbyVisionTM and cataract surgeries, the following lenses are used:

Alcon’s ReSTOR

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.

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.

Oculentis® LENTIS Mplus

With the Oculentis® LENTIS Mplus lens, patients will benefit from improved vision for everyday activities like reading, working on the computer or using a mobile device, as well as for active leisure time activities like biking or other fitness and sports training. It will also benefit patient’s vision with high contrast sensitivity, making driving during both the day and night possible.

AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® by Alcon

The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® trifocal lens by Alcon is designed to help patients with Progressive Lens Dysfunction that elect to address their near, intermediate, and distance vision needs with a single lens. Not only does it reduce the patient’s need for reading glasses, bifocals and/or progressive lenses but it can help them to regain their near and intermediate vision, in addition to providing excellent distance vision. This particular intraocular lens technology features ENLIGHTEN, which stands for ENhanced LIGHT ENergy, a tool that recreates the functionality of a natural eye lens. The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® transmits roughly 88% of light to truly provide clear vision. While other trifocal lenses can provide an intermediate focal point of roughly 80 cm, with AcrySof® IQ PanOptix®, a more natural focal point at 60 cm is reached. This is helpful for patients who wish to fulfill everyday tasks such as reading newsprint or working on a computer.


FineVision by PhysIOL

Approved in Canada since 2016, this trifocal, single-piece lens allows individuals afflicted with presbyopia or cataracts to see near, intermediate and far distances following their insertion. In 2010, PhysIOL was the first company to introduce a trifocal lens. This lens represented a shift in intraocular lens design, offering a stark improvement from bifocal lenses, as well as unprecedented results. The technology saw 87% of patients report freedom from daily use of their glasses or contacts. Overall, results obtained by the use of this lens offer an extended and improved range of vision—in all light conditions.

AT LISA tri 839MP by ZEISS

The Zeiss AT LISA tri 839MP is another trifocal lens that allows patients to benefit from enhanced eyesight—at all distances (near, intermediate and far). Recent studies have shown that 90% of those who have undergone presbyopia or cataract treatment using ZEISS’ trifocal technology reported diminished use of glasses or contact lenses. Additionally, image jumps saw significant reduction, and patients were able to switch from near to far distances easily. With this lens technology, many reported improved vision at night, thus facilitating night driving or reading in dim light. Levels of patient satisfaction are incredibly high following the insertion of these lenses: 97% of those treated with ZEISS’ models said they would recommend these lenses to family and friends.
