READING WITHOUT THE EYEGLASSES
REFRACTIVE SURGERY IN PRESBIOPIA – get rid of the dependence of your reading and far distance glasses!
MAKE YOUR EYES YOUTH AGAIN
In certain age of life, there is physiological changing in the function of the eye. Aproximately round forties, the eye starts to lose capability to focus sharply on near, and spectacles for reading became reality. That is what we recognize as presbyopia.
In such age, laser will not solve the problem, because it will correct refraction for far, but not for near, in the lack of accommodation. In presbiopic age ,the best option for complete refractive correction: near , intermediate and far distance, is lens exchange surgery with appropriate intraocular lens implantation. These multifocal intraocular lenses or lens with extended range of focus, will successfully compensate the lack of accommodation.
It is not necessary to have a cataract, or to wait “maturing of the lens”, to have this refractive procedure.
Having problem with near and distance vision, in presbiopic age , with or without cataract ,with clear biological lens , is enough for decision making about refractive error corrections.
Lens exchange surgery- Phacoemulsification is inseparable part of refractive surgery, very comfortable, in topical anesthesia, fast, with small incision, that closes by itself , immediately, without suturing. This is out- patient procedure, with no need for resting in the hospital. Both eyes surgery , in one day is recommended, as -Immediate Sequential Bilateral Cataract Surgery( ISBCS)
The choice of the intraocular lens for implantation depends on the preexisting refractive error , meaning myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism correction, and of course , restoring of near vision.
That means that multifocal IOLs are available even with toric component , to correct astigmatism, as well.
In young patients with cataract, the accommodation is lost, so ,choosing the multifocal intraocular lens in cataract surgery, we can almost ” rehabilitate ” the accommodation.
And it is long –term sustainability.
HAVE MORE COMFORT AND ENHACCED FUNCIONALITY WITH ENHANCED GENERATION OF IOLs
