Great News for Cataract Patients with Near Vision Problems

08 Jul 2013

Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ is the corneal inlay used during the Presbia procedure to correct near-vision impairment at Optilase Laser Eye Clinics.


The Presbia procedure has been hugely successful and enormously popular in correcting presbyopia, the condition where aging of the eye makes the lens stiff and inflexible, causing blurring of near objects.


If you have had Cataract Surgery, you may be a Presbia Candidate.


Impressively, recent clinical results have found that the Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ is also suitable for post-cataract patients; another huge breakthrough for eye health.


Clinical results where the Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ was implanted during cataract surgery show that it is a safe, viable and effective treatment for presbyopia in post-cataract patients, which should also cause no interference in any future cataract procedures.

About Presbia’s Flexivue Microlens™

Presbia’s Flexivue Microlens™ solution involves implanting a very thin 3-mm lens, approximately 15 microns in edge thickness, in the corneal stroma layer of the patient’s non-dominant eye.


Using Presbia’s proprietary insertion tool, the lens is placed in a pocket created in the cornea by a femtosecond laser. The lens may stay in place permanently, or it can be removed, giving the patient a great advantage and flexibility in case his or her presbyopia gets worse as they age further and need a stronger prescription.

Quick, Painless Procedure

The Presbia procedure at Optilase is quick and painless; the experienced Ophthalmic Surgeon can perform the procedure in less than 10 minutes and it requires no general anaesthesia; just eye drops containing a specialised local anaesthetic to numb the eye.


The visual recovery of every patient takes only a couple of days, so they can go back to work or resume their normal activities relatively quickly.
