Good News for Readers

10 Sep 2012

Optilase have good news for people with Presbyopia! You’ll be delighted to learn that there is finally a treatment available that will allow you to be free of reading glasses.
Presbyopia is an eye condition that strikes as we age; it literally means ‘age of sight’, or ‘Old Eye’. Essentially, the crystalline lens in our eye stiffens with age, becoming less flexible and we begin to have trouble focusing on objects close to the eye.
It’s most noticeable when we find ourselves squinting and holding newspapers at funny angles, in an attempt to focus clearly. It usually starts to affect people after 40, and results in the inevitable trip to the opticians for reading glasses.
If you already wear glasses or contacts, presbyopia used to mean that you needed to get glasses to wear over the contacts, or get bifocals on your glasses-all just to read and see objects very close to your face.
Now, Optilase are offering an ingenuous solution to the problem of Presbyopia, using corneal inlays. A corneal inlay is a tiny little piece of biocompatible polymer, which is put into the eye to correct the focus from the inside.
Presbia is the company that has developed this corneal inlay; it’s called the Flexivue Microlens and it’s been thoroughly reviewed and supported by top eye surgeons internationally.
The idea of a corneal inlay is clever enough, but this microlens is actually customizable to fit your eye exactly. Using the same kind of femtosecond laser that used in Lasik surgery to make a tiny pocket in the cornea, the surgeon slips in the thin corneal inlay and the pocket seals itself over it.
Once it’s inserted, the little lens is invisible and stays permanently in place unless you need a stronger prescription at any point, in which case it can be easily removed and replaced.
This innovative procedure at Optilase will allow patients to put their reading glasses away forever and experience clear vision again.
