PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision surgery recovery time

If you know a little bit about PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, you may have noticed it treats the symptoms of presbyopia in a similar way to the traditional approach of monovision. This is indeed true. Both treatments work by increasing the range of your vision by independently altering the focus of each eye — one to work better up close, and the other to work better at a distance. But the similarities end there. Think of monovision like as the baby of presbyopia… Read more

When does presbyopia start?

Literally meaning “old eye”, presbyopia is the medical term we use for the natural effects of ageing on the eye. The first thing you’re likely to notice is a loss of ability to read fine print and focus on objects up close. It may be you’re holding the newspaper further and further away or squinting to read material you could once see clearly. Add to that stress, eyestrain, and headaches, and you’ve got a typical case of presbyopia. But being so closely related to ageing,… Read more

Fed up of cheap reading glasses

They were never meant to be part of your life. It was just another day on a routine shopping trip, after a morning of straining to read this month’s bank statement and the small print on product labels, when you finally decided enough is enough and paused as you passed the revolving rack of shame. You casually rotated the stand, trying to give off an air of passive interest, and then, when nobody was looking your way, slyly whisked a pair into the… Read more

How long to get used to blended vision?

Presbyopia, or age related reading vision changes, can cause eye strain and headaches, reduces your ability to read small print and makes it near enough impossible to do anything close-up. And if that wasn’t enough, when you look for a solution for it, you’re bound to come away even more frustrated. For something that impacts millions of people around the world — 11 million in the US alone — and is pretty much guaranteed to affect anyone beyond the age of 40, this is… Read more

What age can I expect to need reading glasses?

Age-related long sight, getting old, poor lighting; there are many ways people describe and deal with the loss in vision quality they experience as they get older. But if you want to get technical, the accurate medical term is presbyopia — literally meaning ‘ageing eye’. It describes the loss in elasticity of the lens of the eye that results in the inability to read small print and focus on objects up close. Along with a decline in memory, a bad back, and finding yourself watching… Read more

You don’t need to suffer with reading glasses or bi-focals

Squinting when trying to read fine print, holding the newspaper farther and farther away from your face, avoiding labels on products when shopping — sound familiar? To anyone who’s suffering from presbyopia, the term for loss of near focusing ability that typically occurs in your mid-forties, these symptoms may sound all too familiar. Whether after a discussion with your optician, or self-diagnosis and treatment, the first step many people try is often a simple pair of reading glasses. As you may have… Read more

How good a solution to reading glasses is Laser Eye Surgery?

Do you sometimes feel like you’d do anything to free yourself from those irritating rims that always seem to disappear or break? Even the inconvenience of having to find them every time you need to read something is enough to make you cry out in frustration and throw them as far as the eye can see. But, usually just as quickly as the feeling arises, it settles, and you continue getting on with the rest of your day. That is at least until… Read more

How does blended Laser Eye Surgery work?

If you’re anything like me, you won’t dive into a new therapy, course of medication, or treatment until you know everything there is to know about it. It’s an admirable trait — albeit one that can become annoying when encountering conflicting information and reviews online, to later realise you’ve spent six hours non-stop staring at a screen. Fortunately, your research session today won’t end with you as a whirring, hazy lump, lying eyes wide on the couch or in bed. Here we’re going… Read more

Laser Eye Surgery treatment types

There are laser eye treatments then there are laser eye treatments. What’s the difference I hear you ask? Well, on the surface, not much. But the thing is you can walk into one high street provider and find a long list of treatments, with names like UltraLASEK, Epi-LASEK, Epi-LASIK, Custom LASIK, and Zyoptix. Yet you could walk into another and see a completely different list, maybe with UltraLASEKplus and Wavefront LASIK on it. Or, even more confusingly, you could visit an independent clinic… Read more

Laser eye treatments

Have you ever read a description of a new product, treatment, or therapy, and immediately switched off due to an excess of overcomplicated jargon? I mean, what’s the point in using complex and technical language if they know it will fly straight over the heads of the vast majority of people? It’s a good question — and one that reveals a lot about the company or person behind the particular product or service they are selling. You’ll find this when browsing the Laser… Read more
