Presbyopia (or old eyes) is an age-related condition, where the eye’s transparent lens seize to change shape as easily as it once did. This shape change of the lens ensures that we can see sharply the objects we are looking at. To ensure a sharp vision, our eyes are constantly adapting, hence the lens will become more convex or flattened. As we age, the lens loses this flexibility and it becomes increasingly difficult to see nearby objects as sharply as before. Reading, sewing, embroidery, DIY and handicrafts become growing problems. We cannot see our cell phones properly either. In addition, our well-being deteriorates.
Depending on your condition, your ophthalmologist will recommend wearing one or two near-sighted and farsighted glasses,
possibly with bifocal or multifocal lenses.
There is also the use of special contact lenses to be considered. A laser vision correction procedure may also be a viable solution.
Moreover, the laser lens replacement is also an excellent alternative, especially if initial signs of cataracts exist.
The purpose of this surgery is to remove the natural lens of the eyes that no longer function and replace it with an artificial lens implant.
For this procedure, we recommend three lens replacement options; single-focus (monofocal), two-focus (bifocal), and
the three-focus (trifocal) artificial lenses.
