What Is Laser Blended Vision?

Professor Dan Reinstein – “Blended vision is a term, which is placed on a very special kind of Laser Eye Surgery, which we use to correct not only someone’s distance vision but also their near vision, their reading vision.  This applies to people who are generally in their 40s or older that have, what is called, aging eye or presbyopia to use the agreed term.”

Laser Blended Vision Explained Further…

The laser eye procedure to correct presbyopia or ‘ageing eyes’ involves a technique called Laser Blended Vision. The technique can be employed using either LASIK or PRK; whichever is most appropriate for the patient. 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.

The treatment (blended vision) has allowed me to be more effective, efficient and flexible in every day life… Simple tasks like reading sms and emails on small screens, or DIY tasks or driving the car no longer requires glasses off/on/off or the quest for ‘where did I leave them’. You soon forget how frustrating the need for glasses were and what you missed out on in everyday surroundings when you had them off! Now my awareness is total. – Robin Haddon
