Around the age of 40, we all lose our ability to see at near. This problem is universal. Presbyopia is caused by the eye’s natural lens growing more rigid and less flexible as we age. Because the lens no longer can expand or contract adequately enough to focus at all distances, blurring can cause problems such as inability to read fine print, see your cell phone or your watch.
No current vision technology offers a perfect solution for this problem, known as presbyopia. Replacing the eye’s natural lens with an artificial one (intraocular lens or IOL) is the best way to enable sharper focus at all ranges. Presbyopia correcting IOLs are designed by various methods to give you the best possibility of seeing near, immediate and distance without the aid of glasses. In fact over 80 percent of patients with the Restor 3.0 in both eyes NEVER wear glasses for any activities!
The Tecnis Multifocal offers excellent near an far vision with better vision in low light!
Another technology that we offer is near vision Conductive Keratoplasty (CK). By reshaping the cornea the patient retains most of the distance vision and enhances their near vision. This procedure can be done after LASIK on an off label basis for enhanced near vision for those over 40.
