Do You Need Bifocals?

Suddenly finding you need bifocal reading glasses or bifocal contact lenses can be something of a shock, especially if you’ve always had good vision. But the fact is, everyone’s sight begins to deteriorate after 40.

Why You Beed Bifocals

At this stage of life, the lens of your eye begins to stiffen, while the muscles that shift your focus between near and far become weaker. This is called presbyopia and the classic sign is when you begin to hold books or newspapers further and further away, until your arm isn’t long enough for you to focus. This is the dreaded moment you find yourself considering bifocals. So many people wear bifocal contact lenses and reading glasses and unfortunately, you’ll find that most Laser Eye Surgery clinics reject patients over 40.

It is for this reason that so many patients are thrilled to find that the London Vision Clinic has pioneered a new laser technique called PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, which counters presbyopia.

Escaping Bifocals

Using laser surgery, we can adjust each eye in different ways, increasing the depth-of-field of each eye to allow for both near and distant vision. For most patients, this means they can throw away those infuriating bifocals or varifocals.
