Firstly, it sounds like you suffer from presbyopia – a condition which makes it hard for people to read fine print and digital displays and to see small objects. It is hugely common and affects the majority of people over the age of 40 and is part of the natural ageing process of the eye. Although treatable through the use of prescription reading glasses, we can understand your wish for a more permanent solution.
Fortunately, a laser eye surgery technique called SUPRACOR has just launched which is available at a number of well respected clinics. It is similar to a LASIK procedure but developed specifically for presbyopia and many patients experience an immediate improvement after the surgery.
Yes there is! A CE approved LASIK-type procedure called SUPRACOR is now available providing great results for presbyopia, the natural ageing of the eye which results in the difficulty to view small objects and fine print. Presbyopia is a very common condition, affecting the majority of people over the age of 40, with many simply choosing to wear reading glasses. SUPRACOR provides a safe and effective alternative, improving vision almost immediately.
From what you’ve said, it sounds like you are suffering from presbyopia – a condition which occurs naturally as the eye begins to age, making it difficult to see small objects and print. Unfortunately, this age-related condition has a different cause than the typical long- or short-sighted vision problems occurring in your 20’s or 30’s, and so would not be prevented by your previous treatment.
Until recently, presbyopia could not be treated very successfully with laser eye surgery, but a new procedure called SUPRACOR is now available. It is based on the widely available LASIK procedure but developed specifically for presbyopia and many patients experience an immediate improvement.
