Advantages of Presbia

30 Nov 2012

Exclusive to Optilase in Ireland, the Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ corneal inlay is a safe and effective choice for correction of presbyopia in what Ophthalmic Surgeons call ‘young patients’.
The Flexivue Microlens™ is for patients with Presbyopia, or aging of the eye, who have trouble focusing on near objects and need reading glasses.
When it comes to your eyes, you’re a ‘young’ patient if you’re aged between 40 and 60, although the state of your eyes varies by genetic factors and other optical predispositions.

Implantation of Flexivue Microlens™

It’s a swift procedure: your Ophthalmic Surgeon will implant the lens in a few moments, and the entire procedure only takes about 10 minutes.
It’s compatible with your body: The lens is a tiny piece of polymer-which is biocompatible with your body so it doesn’t cause any adverse reactions- which is implanted into the cornea. It’s microscopically thin, and permeable.
You only need one: The Flexivue Microlens™ is implanted into one eye; the non-dominant one.
Presbia gives you spectacle independence, which is a posh way of saying the procedure will free you from being dependent on reading glasses.
It’s invisible: the lens can’t be seen against your eye.
It won’t interfere with any future cataract surgery: the presence of the inlay in the eye may not inhibit future cataract surgery if it’s required.
It can stay in your eye for years if it suits your vision: the Flexivue Microlens™ is a permeable inlay, allowing nutrients to flow through the cornea to the anterior part of the eye. The inlay can be in the cornea for many years and not cause problems to the nutrition of the cornea.

Removal of Flexivue Microlens™

Your vision requirements will change over the years as your eyes get older (along with the rest of you). The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ can be easily taken out and updated: when patients’ refraction changes with age, the inlay can be removed or exchanged when needed; a great option for patients who want to remain open to advances in eye treatment in the future.
