Do you need varifocals?
Everyone’s eyesight deteriorates as they getting older. But even so, suddenly being told you need reading glasses can be something of a shock, especially if you’ve always had good vision.
Sorry, but it’s time to get varifocals
You’re at that stage in life where your eyesight just isn’t what it used to be. You’ve been avoiding the fact it’s happening, but as you can’t keep holding your phone or the newspaper further and further away, you’ve reluctantly given in and decided to do something about it.
You’re told its presbyopia, that the lens in your eye is stiffening and the muscles that shift your focus between near and far are becoming weaker. The time has come, you’re told, to get reading glasses.
It’s not that bad, you’re told. You can get varifocals which mean you don’t need to get multiple pairs (if you already have a prescription) and people will barely notice they’re readers. However, varifocals come with their own issues, particularly in tasks that require quick changes in near and middle distance focus. Luckily, there is another solution.
You don’t need reading glasses or varifocals
Ken, a patient at London Vision Clinic, discusses his challenges with reading vision loss and his experiences of the PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision procedure.
Although your optometrist isn’t as likely to point you to it or even be aware of it, is it possible to treat presbyopia and avoid reading glasses altogether with the revolutionary PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision treatment.
PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision works by adjusting each eye in different ways, increasing the depth-of-field for both near and distant vision. For most patients, this means they can throw away those infuriating varifocals or bifocals for many years, if not for good.
Typically, if you’re looking for an alternative to reading glasses that doesn’t mean monovision contact lenses, you’ll find most Laser Eye Surgery clinics can’t help you. That’s why PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, which was developed here at London Vision clinic, is so revolutionary and such an exciting new treatment.
Not everyone is suitable for Laser Eye Surgery. However, suitability rates for PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision are as high as 98 percent.
