Rolling back the years: How to treat presbyopia
We accept ageing as a fact — an unavoidable process that governs all existence and affects us whether we like it or not.
And in many ways, it is. Ageing is one part of the biological puzzle that continues to evade even the brightest minds and the most cutting edge technology.
However, all is not lost; many experts believe an effective solution to slowing down and even reversing ageing is on the horizon. The only thing we have to do is wait.
But the thing about ageing is that it doesn’t wait around for anything or anyone. And left to her own devices, Mother Nature can be a cruel and unrelenting parent.

Fortunately, there is one option that can give you one up on Mother Nature today – not in five or ten years time when already it’s too late. Developed in 2011, Laser Blended Vision is a revolutionary Laser Eye Surgery treatment that combats the symptoms of presbyopia and restores vision to the clear, sharp, and youthful state it was before.
Getting one up on Mother Nature
Presbyopia is the term for the deterioration in vision that starts to rear its head in middle age. Unlike other common refractive errors like short and long-sightedness, presbyopia is caused by the effects of ageing on the eye.
Over time, the small muscles in the lens of the eye gradually stiffen and we lose the ability to adjust our vision to different distances. This is most noticeable when using our near field vision and focusing on objects up close.
For most people, presbyopia means wearing reading glasses for the rest of their life. And as we all know, reading glasses can add ten years or more to your actual age in a heartbeat. Laser Blended Vision, pioneered at the London Vision Clinic, was specially designed so you can avoid glasses or contacts for a number of years, if not for good.
The treatment works by adjusting one eye to work mainly up close, but a little at a distance, and the other to works mainly at a distance, but a little up close. The brain adapts to this new way of seeing almost instantly, combining the two images into a seamless view of the world and a high depth of vision.
As with any treatments that claim to combat ageing, there’s always a catch. But if this is true, there’s yet one to be found with Laser Blended Vision. Studies show it is an incredibly safe and effective treatment for presbyopia, while thousands of patients say the same thing. It’s true that a small minority may not be suitable candidates, but the vast majority are — including probably you.
