Once your suitability for PRESBYOND has been established, the surgical treatment is very similar to the LASIK procedure.
Treatment is performed with local anaesthesia around the eye and you will be asked to fixate on a target light to hold your eye stable. Using a highly precise femtosecond laser, a thin hinged flap of superficial corneal tissue is created and then gently moved away. You will then be repositioned under the excimer laser, which has been calculated and programmed to remove select parts of the underlying corneal tissue to create blended vision in each eye, a process known as photoablation. Once the cornea has been appropriately reshaped, the corneal flap is replaced and allowed to self-seal. You will be given post-operative eye drop medications and care instructions, and several review appointments scheduled to ensure your eye is healing as expected.
Patients having undergone PRESBYOND laser blended vision treatment often experience improvement in their vision within just one or two days after surgery. This new experience of clear vision at distance and near without optical aids generally stabilises within a few weeks but may vary from individual to individual.
Laser blended vision is an effective option for presbyopic patients also with other refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and even astigmatism.
Patients experiencing the inconvenient effects of presbyopia from Melbourne and surrounding communities are invited to organise your preliminary consultation with the specialists at Armadale Eye Clinic. Book your appointment today by calling us.
