How Lasik May Correct Age-Related Presbyopia


Presbyopia is a condition that occurs with age when your eye loses elasticity and cannot focus on nearby objects. While the condition can be corrected by wearing special glasses, it can also be treated with LASIK.

Laser Eye Surgery can adjust the shape of your cornea and help improve your vision. 

At Trusted LASIK Surgeons™, our directory will help you find the right LASIK surgeon for your condition. If you have presbyopia and are considering surgery, we can help.

What Is LASIK?

LASIK surgery uses a special laser to adjust the shape of your cornea. This procedure can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. It is an alternative to glasses or contacts. The procedure includes numbing drops to make the surgery painless. LASIK changes the way your eye refracts light to permanently improve your vision. 

LASIK for Presbyopia

If you have age-related presbyopia, speak to your eye doctor to determine if LASIK is a good option for you. The procedure may not be able to correct presbyopia in all patients. Many patients with presbyopia need correction for nearsightedness and farsightedness. However, in some cases, LASIK can correct age-related presbyopia using a monovision treatment. This refers to correcting the dominant eye for distant vision and the other eye for close up objects.

It is important to speak with your eye doctor to see if LASIK is right for you. While LASIK surgery cannot prevent age-related presbyopia from developing, it can correct some cases. When caught early, the loss of elasticity in your eye can be stopped or slowed down to preserve your vision.
