Does Laser Blended Vision Work For Everyone?
We all have those moments of seniority when you realise, for one reason or other, that you’re not as young as you used to be.
For some, though, it happens a lot more often than it needs to.
Maybe it’s that you struggle to stay awake later than 10 pm on a Saturday night or your medicine cabinet is starting to look more and more like a pharmacy. And every day you spend less time with the grandkids before collapsing.
There are just some things about ageing that you have to accept, and these are some of them.

However, things like holding the menu further and further enough away to read it clearly; or trying to read the prescription label on your medications; or watching your favourite show without getting a headache — these things are not mandatory.
They are, like the rest, associated with the inevitable process of ageing. But unlike the rest, there is something you can do to avoid them altogether.
Before Laser Blended Vision, options such as monovision contact lenses or bifocals and make the transition to reading glasses were often the only solution for ageing eyes.
These are short-term temporary solutions to presbyopia. And it was for this reason that since 2004, we have been performing the revolutionary Laser Blended Vision procedure eliminating the need for any glasses or contacts for many years — if not for good.
Making Presbyopia A Thing of The Past
Everyone over the age of 40 will deal with the degrading reading vision. And often as you continue to age, the problems with focusing and near vision only get worse.
As mentioned, most people try to improve their focusing power using reading glasses or monovision lenses. The problem is, readers, as well as being unsightly, can cause a host of issues from blurry vision to headaches, and monovision is only tolerated by around 60 percent of patients.
Laser Blended Vision, on the other hand, has already successfully treated thousands of patients and proven to have very few, if any, downsides.
The treatment works in a very similar but very different way to monovision. The difference is in the name: blended. Whereas monovision treats one eye to work best up close and one to work best at distance, blended vision does the same but tapers each eye’s point of focus, to result in one smooth, ‘blended’ binocular field of vision.
The focusing power is increased in one eye to improve intermediate and close vision while the other is adjusted to improve intermediate and far vision. This overlap in the intermediate field allows your brain to merge the two images more naturally, and, therefore, also means the tolerance rate is much higher than monovision.
With this in mind, Laser Blended Vision opens up an effective presbyopia treatment to a wider range of candidates than ever before. And as it’s performed using LASIK technology, it’s also generally available to anyone who’s already qualified for other methods of laser eye treatment.
Chances are, then, you’re a perfect candidate for Laser Blended Vision. Get in touch today and have a chat with one of our friendly clinic coordinators about how the treatment could help you.
