Are you having trouble seeing objects close-up without relying on your glasses? Do you have to hold things far away from your eyes to get a clear focus?
Chances are you have presbyopia, or ageing of the eye.
Presbia is the procedure, exclusive to Optilase in Ireland, where a corneal inlay called the Flexivue Microlens is implanted in one eye to combat the effects of presbyopia and greatly enhance close vision. If you’ve used glasses to see up close, you can get rid of them after Presbia.
Presbyopia occurs as the eye ages and the natural lens stiffens, resulting in problems focusing on near objects. The corneal inlay used in Presbia is implanted into one eye-your dominant eye-and allows you to see up close with clarity and precision once more.
Most people who have had to depend on reading glasses because of their presbyopia find they don’t need glasses at all after the Presbia procedure. It’s also a wonderful option for people who traditionally have great distance vision but who have trouble when things are close up.
The patient’s eye is numbed using a local anaesthetic, and is awake for the brief, painless procedure.
The Presbia procedure involves implanting the tiny Flexivue Microlens® in the patient’s non-dominant eye. It’s a slim lens; just 3-mm thick and it’s slipped into a corneal pocket created using a 150 kHz femtosecond laser. It’s placed in the pocket using a specially designed tool and the eye heals itself after a couple of days.
Patients achieved dramatic improvements in their near vision after just one week, from pre-operative vision of 20/100 to 20/25-1.
Results after one year of having the inlay show that the Flexivue Microlens® continues to improve near vision for patients. It produces stable near vision after a full year of implantation, without any medical complications.
Over a period of 12 months, the average uncorrected near visual acuity of the patients’ operated eye improved from 20/100 pre-operatively to 20/25 after surgery. The benefits are obvious, and there’s no change to distance vision.

Hello Million thanks for optilase clinic You change my life😍😍😍 After my surgery I start see next day!!!
Attended the clinic today and couldn't be happier with the staff and how pleasant they were. Delighted that I got a consultation
Great experience and great after care. Had 2020 vision within 24 hours with very minimal pain.
Amazing experience , amazing staff, amazing eye sight . I had lens replacement 3 months ago and would highly recommend.
I got my laser eye surgery done on April 20th and couldn’t be happier. I had one hard day of recovery, followed by dry eyes for a small while. Sleeping with the protective goggles is the hardest part, but you’re helped throughout the process by experts. I couldn’t recommend this enough and Optilase were a dream to deal with. Even if you can’t afford the treatment now, you can always talk about a payment plan and get the vision you’ve always wanted.
