How Does Treatment For Reading Vision Differ From Conventional Laser Eye Surgery?

Here at the London Vision Clinic we are very fortunate to be able to offer patients who have become presbyopic, which means, patients whose reading has drifted out of focus Laser Eye Surgery. This is age related and worsens as you get older. In order to fix this, we use a process called Laser Blended Vision where we focus the patient’s dominant eye for distance, and focus the non-dominant eye for near. We do it in such a way that the eyes will help each other for their respective tasks. While the distance eye is good for distance and intermediate the near eye is good for near and intermediate. This means that the patient achieves a full spectrum of their vision after the procedure.

Laser Blended Vision 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 Visioneffect with LASIKPRK or LASEK.


Mr Glenn Carp explains how at London Vision Clinic is able to treat reading vision and distance vision using Laser Blended Vision treatment.

It’s a cliche but this really has changed my life! My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner! There was no pain during the procedure or after and my eyesight now is better than when I wore contact lenses! It’s amazing to wake up in the morning and be able to see without trying to find my glasses!
