Laser Eye Surgery is performed in order to correct problems related to the cornea. Generally speaking, laser eye surgery is suitable for people between the ages of 18-65 and corrects the following conditions;
In people over the age of 40 wearing reading glasses, the problem is usually related to the lens of the eye. As the eye ages, the lens becomes hard and loses its gel-like flexibility. The muscles surrounding the lens which in a young eye can help the lens to focus also become weaker and as a result the eye cannot focus on fine print. The condition is called presbyopia. Reading vision correction corrects presbyopia.
At Optilase, we are also proud to offer combination procedures whereby we can correct problems relating to the cornea and reading vision problems using a combination of laser eye surgery and reading vision correction treatments.
