Presbyopia Treatment

Compare 11 clinics

Presbyopia treatment is a part of ophthalmology that deals with the effects and treatment of presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition in which the eyes have a diminished ability to focus on near objects. It can also be confused with nearsightedness or myopia. The condition is caused by loss of elasticity of the patient’s natural eye lens and changes in the lens’ curvature.

Presbyopia symptoms include one or more of the following:

● Eyestrain
● Problems focusing on fine writing or small objects
● Difficulty seeing in dim light
● Patients often have headaches while reading

Most of these symptoms appear when the patient is around 40 or 50 years old. As the patient gets older, the ability to focus on near objects declines steadily, unless treated with presbyopia surgery. Even patients with no prior sight problem can develop presbyopia after age 40. Patients already suffering from myopia will notice further decline in their ability to focus, even while wearing classes or contact lenses.

Presbyopia can be diagnosed through an eye examination – the doctor will test the patient’s refractive power, the retina, the patient’s visual acuity or sharpness of vision and the condition of the patient’s eye muscles.

Presbyopia is very widespread – over a billion people worldwide are affected by this condition, hence the need for a safe and reliable presbyopia treatment.

Presbyopia Treatment Candidates

Presbyopia treatment is recommended for patients over 40 who rely on glasses or contact lenses for reading purposes, and still have trouble in focusing on smaller objects or text.

Am I Suitable for Presbyopia Treatment?

Presbyopia treatment or presbyopia surgery is not recommended for the following groups of individuals:

● Pregnant patients
● Patients suffering from diabetes
● Patients suffering from other eye problems such as glaucoma or cataract
● Patients born with a larger diameter pupil or a very thin cornea

Preparing for Presbyopia Treatment

Patients need to have a thorough eye examination in order to ensure eligibility for the presbyopia treatment, since the condition is so similar to myopia. Patients should stop wearing contact lenses and makeup for a few days before the presbyopia treatment is set to begin – contact lenses may damage the cornea even further and makeup can interfere with the presbyopia treatment.

How is Presbyopia Treatment Performed?

Presbyopia treatment or presbyopia surgery is usually performed under a local anaesthetic. A very precise excimer laser is used for this procedure. Once the anaesthesia kicks in, the excimer laser is used to reshape the cornea, thus correcting far, near and intermediate vision. The laser can be applied to one or both eyes and it only lasts around 10 minutes. Patients will regain good vision at all distances.

Presbyopia Treatment FAQ

?
Is the procedure painful?

Absolutely not – patients won’t really feel a thing apart from the mild discomfort caused by dry or itchy eyes. These post-op effects of the presbyopia treatment be easily soothed with eye drops which will be provided by the eye doctor.

?
Can it compromise the patient’s distance vision?

No, presbyopia treatment using the excimer laser has no ill effect on the patient’s distance vision. Even if the patient may be a part of the 23% that still relies on glasses after the surgery, the patient’s vision will not be affected in any way by the presbyopia treatment.

?
How long do the effects of this procedure last?

The benefits of presbyopia surgery can last up to 20-30 years. There is basically no limit on the effects of the presbyopia treatment. The only issues that might appear are other vision problems such as cataract, but that can be treated easily through other interventions.
