Throw your reading glasses away

A lot of unexpected but unavoidable things happen as we get older.

Hair stops growing where it should and starts in obscure places, hard parts of the body get soft and soft parts get hard, our memory fails us, we lose a few inches in height, and our eyesight deteriorates.

Most of these things don’t really affect day-to-day life. You can deal with occasionally being senile — in fact, it can come in handy from time to time. The hair sprouting out of ears and nostrils bothers your partner more than it does you, and what you’re losing in height, well, you can easily make up for in wisdom.

But losing your eyesight is a different matter. You’ve lived a good life, paid your taxes, took good care of your eyes, and now all you ask is to be able to sit down at the end of a long day and read the paper or watch TV without medical aid. Come to think of it, is it too much to be able to go for a swim, a game of squash, or a morning hike without being hindered by glasses or contact lenses?

Instead, you have a million pairs of glasses scattered around the house and you can never find them when you need them. You feel your arms are receding along with your hairline as you can’t hold the paper far enough away to see it clearly. The last time you went to play squash you spent half an hour in the car park squinting, trying to decipher the terms on the parking ticket.

It’s when poor vision starts disrupting the everyday things that seniority starts to take over your life. For most people throughout history, this has meant giving up their youth and assuming the role of an old person. But thanks to the revolutionary Laser Eye Surgery technique, Laser Blended Vision, your generation is one of the first that can delay the process of descending into doddery for many more years to come.

And without sounding too salesy, that’s what Laser Blended Vision is — the best. It was specifically designed to offer an effective alternative to what is a poor bunch of treatment options for presbyopia. Reading glasses, monovision, artificial lens implants — they all require some sort of compromise, whether it be safety, convenience, or vision quality. The key difference with Laser Blended Vision is that rather than mask or cover up the symptoms, you attack the problem right at its source.

Yes, it costs more, but can you really put a price on life’s simple pleasures? Okay, maybe you can, but only you can decide how much they’re worth.
