In an interview, Alex Shortt explains who is suitable for PRESBYOND laser eye surgery.
Alex Shortt: The ideal patient for PRESBYOND is undoubtedly a younger patient who has only just started to wear reading glasses.
Interviewer: So, the mid-40s? Early 50s?
Alex Shortt: Yes, the mid-40s, early 50s, certainly. So, my personal belief is that that young mid-40s, early 50s with presbyopia who don’t yet want to wear reading glasses are the ideal candidates for PRESBYOND LASIK.
Now, what happens to our eyes as we age is that the lens stiffens and begins to lose its transparency. When the natural lens loses its clarity, we call that cataract. The difficulty is if we correct your vision and give you wonderful blended vision using PRESBYOND, and then you get a cataract, you end up back to square one again, with blurry vision.
