Did you know that cataract surgery can mean never having to wear glasses again? Ever...
Once thought only for Cataract Patients, Lens Replacement Surgery is freeing Over 40’s from Glasses Dependence
Cataract sufferers have been undergoing Lens Replacement Surgery since the 1980’s, and it is regarded as one of the safest and most effective surgical procedures performed today. What many people don’t know though is that a very similar procedure can help you say goodbye to glasses - getting rid of those reading glasses that you hate! If you are in your forties or older, and you now wear reading glasses, even though you didn’t need them when you were younger, you have a condition called Presbyopia.
How do I know if I have Presbyopia? Does this sound familiar - You hit your 40’s and suddenly realised you could no longer see as clearly as you once did. Fast forward another 10 years and your limbs don’t seem to be long enough to hold out that menu you used to read at arm’s length. You are starting to depend on those glasses, that you hate admitting you need to wear. You resent that they are always downstairs, upstairs, in the car or in your purse.
You very likely have Presbyopia.
Presbyopia is an age-related vision disorder that is considered a natural part of ageing. It affects the sight of 1.3 million Australians and sets off a cycle of “glasses on, glasses off, glasses on” as your prescription gets worse, and your lenses get thicker.
With the latest advancements in cataract surgical techniques and from the learnings of lens replacement treatment for cataract patients there is now a solution for those with Presbyopia to ultimately decrease or remove their dependence on reading glasses for near and far sight needs, using a lens that has a trifocal design that responds to different visual demands.
These world class up to date treatments have gained popularity here and overseas and have developed a reputation as safe, predictable and with results that work for many patients. The treatment is a day surgical procedure which is quick, affordable and available to people like you.
