Treating your Presbyopia with laser eye surgery
People often ask how long the effects of laser eye surgery will last – will they wear off? The answer is no: the effects are permanent. The trouble is, we are all getting older, and the ageing process does affect the performance of our eyes. You may have been told that LASIK eye surgery is powerless against that process. That might be true at some clinics – but at London Vision Clinic, laser eye surgery for presbyopia has become a reality – with Laser Blended Vision.
What is presbyopia?
“The absolute freedom from wearing glasses after so long has changed my life in so many ways. I can now see clearly. My beautiful grandchildren and this amazing world we live in.” Karen
The deterioration of vision with age is called presbyopia: literally, ‘old eye’. As we reach early middle age (around 40), we become less able to adjust our vision to different distances. This is because the lens in the eye is gradually stiffening, while at the same time the muscles that allow it to change focus are becoming weaker. As it is part of the ageing process. Presbyopia affects everyone, and it only gets worse as we get older. If you’re in this age group, you’re probably already seeing the effects. Classically, you’ll realise that your near vision is deteriorating. You begin to hold books and newspapers further and further from your eyes, until eventually your arms aren’t long enough to let you focus. It’s time for the dreaded reading glasses or bifocals – an often painful reminder of the advancing years.

How can you treat presbyopia with Laser Blended Vision?
We can’t stop you getting older. But contrary to what you may have heard, laser eye surgery for presbyopia is a reality. Many other surgeons are forced to resort to synthetic lenses, inserted surgically into the eye. But London Vision Clinic has pioneered a revolutionary technique called Laser Blended Vision, which allows 97% of people to reduce or eliminate their dependency on reading glasses.
What are the advantages of Laser Blended Vision?
Exclusively available at the London Vision Clinic, Laser Blended Vision adjusts the eyes so that one works mainly at distance, but a little up close, while the other works mainly up close, but a little at distance. The brain soon adapts to this system, combining the two images so that you can once again see both near and far without effort. The brain adjusts to the change, giving you excellent depth of focus and overall visual acuity, without glasses or contact lenses.
