What Are The Alternatives In Improving Reading Vision?

Mr Glenn Carp “While Laser Blended Vision is designed to boost one’s reading and maintain one’s distance, there are lot of other techniques that can be used.  The most obvious, the most conventional is using reading glasses.  This can be done in various ways.  You can have conventional reading glasses which result in the vision being corrected only for reading.  One can have varifocal or multifocal or bifocal glasses which allow the top half of the glasses to be focused for distance, the lower half for reading and then of course you can use contact lenses to create a multifocal cornea.  The problem with multi-focality, which is why it is not the best option, is that while it improves distance in the near one tends to lose a bit of quality of vision in the process.  With glasses or with blended vision, the quality is maintained so we are able to restore both your distance and your near vision but maintain the all important quality of vision.”

Presbyopia and the need for bifocals is a sure sign of the passing time, however there are other solutions. For presbyopic individuals who wear glasses and would rather not, Laser Blended Vision offers a remedy to presbyopia.

The laser eye procedure to correct presbyopia or ‘ageing eyes’ involves a technique called Laser Blended Vision. With this technique, one eye is treated to view objects mainly at distance, but a little up close, and the other is treated to view objects mainly up close, but a little at distance. The brain puts the two images together and enables the individual to see distance and near without effort. In most cases, the brain is able to compensate and you will experience an excellent depth of focus and overall visual acuity, without the need to wear glasses or contact lenses.
