Presbyopia LASIK Treatment
Presbyopia LASIK Definition
It means is ‘aging eye’. Unfortunately, reading vision loss, is an eye condition that affects the majority of the population as they enter their 40s. As the eye’s natural lens begins to hardenwith age, the eye’s level of flexibility decreases, making it more difficult to read up close and frustrating for your comfort and daily habits such as reading books, magazines, newspapers and your smartphone. Presbyopia LASIK Surgery is an effective treatment for reading vision problem.
Presbyopia LASIK Smart Laser Eye Surgery is designed for aging eyes.
Because we cannot prevent aging beyond the age of 40, no one is immune to Presbyopia and if left unchecked, it inevitably leads to the need for glasses, bifocal or varifocal reading. Even though near vision defect is usually try to be overlooked with close glasses, using glasses both makes you look old and you need glasses that you need to carry with you all the time.
Presbyopia LASIK Smart Laser Eye Treatment not only corrects reading vision problem. It is a medium and long term and effective solution designed to correct other refractive errors such as Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.
Millions of people around the world have had laser eye surgery to date. Laser eye surgery is one of the most valid and popular treatment methods for the treatment of visual defects, and the most common form of this treatment in the world is LASIK.
Presbyopia LASIK Smart Laser Eye Surgery is an innovative treatment for aging eyes that is being applied in Smart Laser Eye Centers.
Especially precision laser technology developed and pioneered by Excelsius Medical, can eliminate your need for glasses, bifocal or varifocal reading for many years.
You may have heard that Laser Eye Surgery cannot cure near vision defect. It is commonly said that Presbyopia can be correct only by Cataract surgery performed with a “Multifocal” or “Trifocal” lens that is actually inserted into the eye. This information is no longer valid. In Smart Laser Eye Centers, using the state-of-the-art Smart Laser technology, we successfully apply the method of increasing the depth of the eye’s field of view to our suitable patients.
Presbyopia LASIK Surgery seems to have advantages over intraocular lens implants (IOLs) over Cataract surgeries. First, it is a less surgical (and therefore safer) procedure. Second, it does not require compromising vision quality with IOLs (where multifocal IOLs can affect vision quality). Third, it is very accurate and can be adjust as it ages.
It is suitable for 97% of aging eyes
Moreover, it is suitable for around 97% of aging eyes. In fact, if you have had Cataract (Monofocal) Surgery and you must use reading glasses. It is the fastest and effective way to get rid of the reading glasses.
Presbyopia Smart Laser Eye Surgery is programmed to Excimer lasers developed by Excelsius Medical and produced with the precise laser technology. That’s why clinics around the world can now offer this surgery to their patients over the age of 40 with reading problems. While many eye clinics in Turkey offers, Multifocal or Trifocal lens (smart lens) surgery in order to correct aging eyes. Especially Smart Laser Eye Centers offers Presbyopia LASIK Smart Laser Eye Surgery, which is much less of a surgical intervention option for the majority of patients prefers over the age of 40 who do not want ato have cataract surgery.
The main advantages of Presbyopia treatment

The brain compensates for this change almost instantly, bringing the two images together for a much greater depth of view and visual acuity. This means that the patient can now throw away those annoying reading glasses.
After the surgery more than 97% of patients who are short-sighted can read normal books and mobile phones without using bigger fonts.
