Yes! Laser for presbyopia

Laser brought a revolution in the correction of eyesight problems, the ophthalmologist surgeon George Chronopoulos points out and also stresses that our way of life will change within a few minutes. The surgical procedure will be completed with precision and safety, underlines the doctor and states emphatically that with the new revolutionary method offered by the new Eye Day Clinic, presbyopia can be corrected using the laser method.



Dr. Chronopoulos, is refractive surgery safe today?

Refractive surgery has brought a revolution in myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism correction. We are already in the third decade of laser use and we can really observe that precision and safety are already here. With the use of this impressive technology, we can forever eliminate our dependence on corrective glasses or contact lenses.

There are two methods of effective correction of high or low degrees of myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism: PRK and LASIK. The difference between these two methods lies in the fact that, in the first, the correction occurs on the surface of the cornea, while in the second in its interior.

In PRK there is some minor discomfort the first 2-3 days, while in LASIK the discomfort is insignificant and eyesight restoration happens almost immediately, on the very first day. The final result is the same in both cases.

Can presbyopia be corrected today?

Yes, presbyopia lies today within the scope of refractive surgery and is now the field where the ophthalmologists' interest is focused.

The problem lies in the fact that, if we try to correct presbyopia, we unavoidably interfere with distant vision as well, which results in the patient's not having good eyesight in the distance; so we enter a cycle of procedures without end and with no effective result for the patient.

However, the new revolutionary method that we have started offering in our clinic uses the new femtosecond laser to place a microscopical lens in the cornea of one eye. This procedure is completely reliable and safe, the results immediate and the patient can go back to work the very next day.

Distant vision is affected when the axial length of the eye is big in comparison to the curvature and the refractive strength of the cornea. Light rays that enter the eye focus in front of the retina, which results in a blurry visual image, when the myopic person focuses on relatively distant objects. On the contrary, close objects, as a rule, remain clear.
