An erbium laser is used to create areas of flexibility in the white part of the eye (sclera). This is the same kind of laser used to treat wrinkles.
LSM Laser Eye Therapy
Surgical Options include eye laser surgery that uses an Excimer laser to create multifocal zones on the cornea to shape the cornea to see multiple focal points (Presbylasik, Presby Smile). Alternatively, a laser can also be used to create some form of monovision (Traditional MonoVision, Blended vision, MiniMonovision) which allows one eye to see up close and the other eye to see in the distance. (Traditional MonoVision, Blended vision, MiniMonovision). Another option is a corneal inlay. This changes the way light enters the pupil and can improve the patient’s depth of focus helping to see near objects more clearly however it does involve an implant. These procedures are reversible but there is still risk involved as it is a treatment that requires surgery on the cornea.
Older presbyopia patients can also receive a presbyopia correcting lens implant that removes your natural crystalline lens in exchange for an intraocular optic. These procedures are irreversible and come with compromises related to manipulating the eye’s natural optical properties.
