Laser Eye Surgery For Ageing Eyes
Professor Dan Reinstein, expert laser eye surgeon and Medical Director of London Vision Clinic, explains how age affects our eyes and how Laser Eye Surgery can turn back the clock:
“Your 30s are a peak time for the eyes because your prescription stabilises, your eyes are not dry and are healthy. But from 38 to 48, there’s a big change and you start needing to hold things closer or farther away from you to read. That’s your first wake-up call to ageing eyes, and it’s known as presbyopia.”
There is no need to struggle with presbyopia though, and you can eliminate the need for reading glasses, bifocals or varifocals.

Some Tips To Help Look After Ageing Eyes
Professor Dan Reinstein stresses the importance of looking after your eyes at every age, however being aware of eye health becomes even more significant as we get older.
“There are easy lifestyle changes that everyone can make to help take care of their vision – for example: stopping smoking, getting plenty of omega-3 (found in oily fish, such as herring, mackerel and fresh tuna) and always wearing sunglasses when exposed to potentially harmful UV rays.
From age 40, you should visit your optometrist, not an optician, and get an examination – not an eye test, which often isn’t thorough enough.
In addition to assessing your reading prescription (the extent of presbyopia), proper screening is also important to check for glaucoma – the silent blinding disease.”
