Find Out How LASIK MD Can Help With Age-related Up-close Reading Vision Loss


Presbyopia, or up-close reading vision loss, is an eye condition that affects the majority of the population as they enter their 40s. The vast majority of people will be affected by this type of eye condition to various degrees as they age.

This condition happens when the eye’s natural lens begins to harden with age, lowering the eye’s level of elasticity. This makes up-close reading more difficult, and everyday tasks like reading your smartphone, a challenge. Presbyopia, if left unchecked, can ultimately have a negative impact on your daily routine. The worst part is that there is no way to prevent presbyopia as it is a normal aspect of the aging process, and it can get worse over time.

Symptoms of presbyopia include:

  • Increasing the font size on your phone or tablet
  • Holding reading material at arm’s length
  • Squinting to read fine print
  • Tired and fatigued eyes

Traditional solutions for presbyopia can help in helping treat these symptoms, but they each have their own drawbacks too. You can easily misplace your reading glasses, for example, and contact lenses may irritate and dry out your eyes. Additionally, bifocals may make you feel old. Also, these solutions don’t allow for clear vision at every distance.

The good news is that LASIK MD now offers two types of procedures designed to treat presbyopia.

Introducing PresbyVision™

LASIK MD’s PresbyVision™ procedures are complete long-term solutions for presbyopia. Our procedures give you the opportunity to see near, far and everything in between while also allowing you to discover freedom from reading glasses, bifocal, and multifocal lenses.

PresbyVision™ is designed to alleviate the symptoms of presbyopia in addition to correcting other refractive errors such as myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism.

We offer two types of PresbyVision™ procedures: Lens PresbyVision™ and Laser PresbyVision™.

During a Lens PresbyVision™ procedure, our experienced surgeon will gently remove your eye’s natural lens and replace it with a trifocal lens, designed to allow for better vision at every distance.

Additionally, due to the nature of the procedure, Lens PresbyVision™ prevents the formation of future cataracts.

With Laser PresbyVision™, your dominant eye is corrected to see from far distances and the other eye to see from near distances. This allows you to live life as if you were wearing bifocals, only without the glasses.

During your free consultation, our experienced medical staff will assess your candidacy and suggest the best treatment for you based on things like your prescription, the particulars of your eyes and more.

PresbyVision™ is safe

Our surgeons are experts in the field of vision correction procedures, each having performed many thousands of surgeries to date. Our clinics’ standardized surgical techniques and state-of-the-art technology provide patients with a safe, effective procedure that delivers favorable visual outcomes.

Additionally, over the past 15 years, procedures like Lens PresbyVision™ have been performed over 3 million times in Canada.

Life after PresbyVision™

Recovery following PresbyVision™ is quick – patients can be back to their daily routine within a few days of their procedure.

Over 95% of patients no longer wear glasses or bifocals after Lens PresbyVision™. For those who do, the majority require them only occasionally.

You can enjoy the benefits of PresbyVision™ year-round, from hassle-free summer reading by the pool to great walks at your favourite holiday spots, unencumbered by visual aids.
