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.

London Vision Clinic offers PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision – a unique laser eye treatment, developed and pioneered by Professor Reinstein and his colleagues to treat presbyopia.

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision is a Laser Eye Surgery procedure which aims to correct both near and distance vision, giving the patient an excellent visual range.

  • 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.”

    Laser Eye Surgery For Ageing Eyes

    1. Susan Radford 14/06/2017 at 20:26

      I had LASIK surgery 13 years ago to correct my distance vision (it worked) and I actually do not need reading glasses. My distance vision is not great at this point and I have resorted to glasses to see when I drive. Is Blended Vision surgery available for patients who have previously had LASIK?

        Hi Susan, Thanks for your comments. Yes, you can perform surgery on a patient who has had previous surgery as long as it is safe to do so and there is enough corneal tissue. Professor Reinstein specialises in therapeutic cases (patients who have had surgery before). The process tends to be slightly longer and the fees higher as you are taking on another surgeon’s work.
        Please get in touch with the clinic on 020 7224 1005 if you have any further questions.

      Hi. How long approx will laser blended surgery work for before the eye deteriorates back to state before surgery please

      • Chloe Lay 09/04/2018 at 15:27

        Hi Karen, thanks for your message.
        Changes made by the laser are permanent, but it is possible that your physiology can impact your vision, changing your prescription.
        The effects of Laser Blended Vision treatment last 5 to 10 years.
        Many Thanks,
        London Vision Clinic
