8 things our surgeons want you to know about PresbyVision™
If you’re over 40 and find yourself consistently having trouble with your up-close reading vision, you may have presbyopia. LASIK MD offers two types of procedures that can help. Lens PresbyVision™ and Laser PresbyVision™ fall under the PresbyVision™ banner.
In Lens PresbyVision™, the eye's natural lens is replaced with an artificial one called a trifocal lens, designed to provide clear vision at all distances. In Laser PresbyVision™, the surgeon corrects the dominant eye to see far distances and the other eye to see from near distances. By correcting each eye for better vision at different distances, you can expect to have functional vision for tasks that require up-close reading vision as well as for those that require distance vision. Our eye care professionals will administer a series of eye tests to see which procedure is better suited for you.
Here are a few things about these procedures that our surgeons want you to know!
Presbyopia is a degenerative eye condition that continues to progress over time. You might find yourself holding your book, tablet, or other reading material farther and farther away to be able to read, or increasing the font size on your digital devices. It can be frustrating to constantly have to purchase a new pair of reading glasses as your condition worsens.
Recovery from PresbyVision™ is quick
You don’t have to suffer with presbyopia. We offer two procedures that can treat presbyopia and recovery is quick. You’ll be back to your normal routine within just a few days!
LASIK MD surgeons have collectively performed over 1 million procedures (including 500,000 in Quebec alone).
We know what it’s like to trust someone with your eyes. That’s why we want you to know our team has an extensive amount of experience and we are ready to answer any questions you may have about the procedures and recovery process.
Everyone gets nervous
There’s something about eyes that makes most people nervous when it comes to having an exam, or a procedure that can involve instruments touching them. This is normal. Our number one priority, however, is making sure that you feel comfortable as you undergo a procedure. There are a variety of things that we can do to help. We’ll walk you through the entire procedure, we can provide you with a stress ball, and we also offer an oral sedative that you can opt to take.
Bring someone with you
Not only will this help you beforehand if you are nervous, but you’ll need a ride getting home that day too. You may be especially sensitive to light or have slightly blurry vision temporarily, so driving is not recommended right after your procedure.
98% patients notice an improvement in performing routine tasks from up close, like reading texts or seeing computer screens after Laser PresbyVision™
We’re pretty proud of this, which is why we want you to know that our procedures really can be life changing.
The trifocal lens used in Lens PresbyVision™ has been used in over 75,000 patients in 43 countries around the world since 2010
This number makes us feel confident, and it should make you feel that way too. We use state-of-the-art technology and products in our procedures to ensure the best possible outcomes. Over 95% of patients no longer wear glasses or bifocals after the procedure. For those who do, the majority require them only occasionally.
With a refractive lens exchange, there is no limit to the prescription that can be corrected.
When we replace the eye’s natural lens with an artificial one (like in Lens PresbyVision™), you will also never have to worry about cataracts due to the nature of the procedure!
