Presbyopia  literally means the aging eye. Since presbyopia is an age related problem you cannot avoid it even if you’ve never had a vision problem before.  Nearsighted people who can see near well may notice that their near vision blurs when they wear their usual eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct distance vision. Presbyopia gradually becomes symptomatic after the age of 40 and increase as one get older.

Who can benefit from Presbyopia surgery?  Anyone who needs reading glasses will benefit, especially hyperopic patients who need glasses for distance near full time are the most grateful patients as they experience a big increase in the quality of life.

Presbyopia treatment: There are 3 choices: Glasses, contact lenses or surgery. We at Kaskaloglu Eye Hospital can offer you the three modalities. You may already be using glasses or contact lenses. We are offering you Surgical option:

  • LASIK LASER SURGERY:  In younger presbyopes even correcting the distance vision improve the reading vision but the effect decreases by age.  Monovision is another option, here one eye is corrected for distance and the other is corrected for near. The aim of monovision is to provide comfortable vision for most daily activities.
  • RLE refractive lens exchange with trifocal lenses:  RLE- refractive lens exchange with multifocal intraocular lenses is a permanent option for presbyopia.
