Presbyopia Correction

Presbyopia is a progressive condition that occurs around the age of 40 and affects near vision. This occurs because the lens in the back of the eye becomes less elastic and flexible over time, therefore decreasing focusing power. Currently, there are many correction options for patients with presbyopia. The simplest method is a pair of reading glasses, but patients who do not want to wear glasses have more options today than ever before.

Near Vision Corneal Inlay

Do you want to get rid of your reading glasses? The solution for treating presbyopia is here. A new surgical method has been approved by the FDA that corrects patients for presbyopia by placing a corneal inlay in the front part of one eye to enhance the near vision. The corneal inlay changes the shape of the cornea giving the patient the ability to read without glasses. Dr. Nissirios is one of the first doctors in New York to perform this great procedure.

Monovision

Monovision is a method of vision correction where one eye is corrected for distance and one eye is corrected for near. The image coming from each eye to the brain is combined to give the patient good distance and near vision. This can be achieved with contact lenses or laser vision correction.

Multifocal Contact Lenses

Another approach is to fit the patient with multifocal contact lenses, a type of bifocal contact lens that corrects for both distance and near. In the correct candidate multifocal contact lenses are an excellent option of presbyopia correction.

Refractive Lens Exchange

Refractive Lens exchange is another surgical option for the treatment of presbyopia. With this surgical procedure the clear natural lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial multifocal lens implant that can correct for both distance and near vision. This method is a good option for people with extreme farsightness and presbyopia that are not candidates for LASIK surgery.
