Presbyopia correction

Presbyopia is a natural condition. Beginning around age 40 to 45, the lens of the human eye looses its flexibility and thus its ability to change its shape and focus correctly on images at different distances. As a result, near objects are blurry.

Until recently, reading glasses were the primary option for people with presbyopia. Today, a few surgical procedures are available that may help some people to avoid reading glasses.

Description
Multifocal lens implants
(lens exchange)

Multifocal lenses are implanted into the eye replacing the normal lens. They provide relief for presbyopia at the same time as for nearsightedness or for farsightedness. Thus, the goal of multifocal lenses is to provide freedom from needing any eyeglasses or contact lenses.

(Individual Femto-LASIK)

With Monovision LASIK, one eye is treated for distance vision and the other eye (usually non-dominant eye) is treated for near vision.

Correction of Astigmatism, Crosslinking
Normally, the surface of the cornea is curved evenly like the surface of a round ball. In the case of astigmatism, the curvature is stronger in one direction than in the other, and the corneal surface resembles that of an egg or a football. As a result, images appear distorted. The nearsightedness and farsightedness are often accompanied by a mild astigmatism. Astigmatism can be treated as follows:

Description
With the laser

Astigmatism up to 5 pdt can be corrected with Femto-LASIK.
» More information

For severe astigmatism of 5 dpt or higher, an Astigmatic Keratotomy can be performed.

Description
With toric lenses

Toric lenses are special, individually produced lenses that correct nearsightedness or farsightedness as well as an accompanying astigmatism. They can be implanted in addition to the natural lens (phakic lens implants) or replace the natural lens (lens exchanges).

Description
Collagen Cross-Linking using Riboflavin and UVA exposure

Collagen Cross-Linking is used to stabilize a weakened cornea due to a keratoconus or keratectasia.
