How Does The Reading Vision Treatment Differ From Conventional Laser Eye Surgery For Short And Long-Sightedness?

Mr Glenn Carp – “Essentially there is no difference between Laser Blended Vision and a conventional treatment.  In young patients we use very similar profiles to boost their distance vision knowing of course the muscle power within the eyes is very strong and they can on their own focus into near.  All we are simply doing is adjusting the eyes to allow them, in the sense one eye more for distance and one eye more for near, but we do it in such a way is to get a blend over the two.  So the distance eye is good for distance and intermediate vision.  The near eye is good for near and intermediate and you get a nice blend over the full spectrum of your vision, but essentially there is no difference it is just the way of repositioning the eyes that makes the difference.”

Reading Vision Treatment Explained Further…

The procedure to correct reading vision (Laser Blended Vision) does not differ mechanically from conventional Laser Eye Surgery in any way. The only difference is in how we treat each eye in relation to the other. We can achieve the Laser Blended Vision effect with LASIK, PRK or LASEK.

The treatment (blended vision) has allowed me to be more effective, efficient and flexible in every day life… Simple tasks like reading sms and emails on small screens, or DIY tasks or driving the car no longer requires glasses off/on/off or the quest for ‘where did I leave them’. You soon forget how frustrating the need for glasses were and what you missed out on in everyday surroundings when you had them off! Now my awareness is total.– Robin Haddon
