There are numerous vision correction options available for patients with presbyopia. When considering laser treatment, the two main types of laser correction to achieve younger vision are:
Monovision – to achieve monovision, one of the proven laser techniques (lenticular extraction, LASIK or surface treatment) is used to correct an individual’s dominant eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision. Around 65% of the population can neural-adapt to blend the different images, resulting in a really good quality of vision at a range of distances. Some individuals already benefit from monovision, achieving this with contact lenses.
Presbyopic Laser – customised laser treatment is calculated using our specialist scanning equipment and applied to the cornea using the LASIK technique. This adds something called depth of field to a patient’s vision, enabling them to reduce their glasses dependence at all distances. This method also requires a period of neural adaption; however, the specialist laser profile helps it be accepted by a greater proportion of individuals compared to monovision.
Your consultant will discuss and test for the appropriate option for you.
