Dynamic range of focus recovery in presbyopes after laser scleral microporation

    By PineDev

    While considered by many to be a “normal process of aging,” the loss of the dynamic focusing function of the eye, presbyopia, is a progressive disease of ocular aging. Presbyopia affects approximately 1.8 billion people globally.1 Estimated global annual productivity losses are approximately 0.037% of the global gross domestic
    product in presbyopic adults less than 65 years of age.2

    This socioeconomic issue is particularly problematic in developing countries where people are less likely to find visual correction.As people depend upon glasses or bifocals to perform near tasks, there is a decrease in health-related quality of life (HRQOL) and an increase in the risk of ocular diseases. Presbyopia is correlated with ocular rigidity, glaucoma, ocular hypertension, dysfunctional lens syndrome, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts, which can contribute to the effects of aging on ocular tissues.3
