Everyone will experience presbyopia as they grow older. This universal eye disorder causes your eye’s natural lens to lose its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on objects up close. If you are currently using reading glasses or bifocals, you may be interested in some of the more permanent presbyopia treatment options that are now available.
Our experienced Beverly Hills ophthalmologist Rajesh Khanna, MD offers three main forms of presbyopia treatment:
- Presbyopic Lens Exchange (PRELEX) – This revolutionary refractive surgery corrects presbyopia by replacing your aging natural lens with a new artificial lens. There are many different types of intraocular lenses (IOLs) available designed to treat a wide range of refractive errors, including myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.
- Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) – Conducive keratoplasty uses radio frequency energy to steepen your cornea, allowing light to focus properly on your retina for clear near vision. CK can free you from your dependence on reading glasses or bifocals.
- Monovision – Using LASIK technology, the cornea of one eye is adjusted for near vision, while the dominant eye is adjusted for distance vision.
There is no reason you should resign yourself to using reading glasses or bifocals for the rest of your life. Today’s presbyopia treatment options make it possible to enjoy clear vision at all distances again, freeing you to do and enjoy more on a daily basis.
