Ocular Dominance and Tolerance Assessment

What is it?

These tests are designed to assess your tolerance for PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision – a treatment for presbyopia that involves focusing one eye more for distance vision, and the other eye more for near vision.

How Does it Work?

Almost everyone has a dominant eye that is better at focusing on particular objects. In an ocular dominance test, your optometrist will determine which of your eyes is dominant. This eye will then be focused for near vision while your non-dominant eye will be focused for distance.

To determine whether you will be likely to tolerate Blended Vision correction, the optometrist will measure your binocular vision at a distance and up close.

What are the Benefits?

These tests will help to determine your suitability for presbyopia treatment. Presbyopia is a normal part of the ageing process, that leaves many adults over the age of 40 to rely on reading glasses, bifocals or varifocals.

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision treatment can help to significantly reduce – or even eliminate – your need for external visual aids. Ocular Dominance and Tolerance assessments enable your surgeon to create a customised treatment plan for correcting your near and distance vision at the same time.
