Blended Vision Surgery
Laser blended vision is an advanced treatment for the correction of presbyopia, or age-related loss of near vision. It is an excellent treatment option for those people aged between 45 and 65 years old.

Blended vision surgery allows patients to have clear vision at far, mid, and near ranges. It is a development on basic monovision in which contact lenses are used to have one eye focused for distance vision and the other eye focused for near vision.
The main limitation of monovision is that each eye only has a single point of focus – one near and one far. Less than 50% of patients are able to accept monovision, and the main limitation is the loss of the mid range vision between the far and near point of focus.
Laser Blended Vision with Z-LASIK includes optimised optics to increase the depth of field for each eye, so changing from a single point of focus to a range of focus. For example, the left eye can see well for near and mid ranges while the right eye can see well for mid and far. The vision from both eyes blends together allowing clear sight at all ranges.
Preoperative screening is carried out at a consultation to determine if a patient is suitable for laser Blended Vision. On average we find around one in 7-8% of patients will not adapt to Blended Vision. These patients are screened out at the consultation and will not receive surgery.
The actual laser eye surgery procedure for laser blended vision is very similar to a standard laser eye treatment for short sight, and the procedure can be completed for both eyes in less than 8 minutes.

Is Blended Vision surgery safe?
Mr David Allamby has been a pioneer in the use of Blended Vision and indeed was the first surgeon to perform this procedure in the UK. As such his high level of experience coupled with a unique family of staff at Focus means that you are in the best possible hands. The procedure is quick and extremely effective – if we feel that you are not suitable and will not get a good result then we will not proceed with treatment.
