LASIK Blended Vision Treatment
Take care of your eyes
Our chief surgeon David Allamby performed the UK’s first Blended Vision treatments in the UK in 2003, before any other surgeon. He has led the way in correction for reading glasses for more than a decade.
To those people who suffer from presbyopia, the symptoms are very familiar – needing to hold objects further and further away before they come into clear focus. Reading a paper, mobile phone message, seen the number of who is calling you, or reading the ingredients on a tin in the supermarket all become gradually more difficult. Eventually, your arms are simply not long enough! From that point on reading glasses are required.
To correct the effects of presbyopia, initially only a weak pair of magnifying glasses are required, for example +1.00 dioptres. Gradually you will need a stronger and stronger pair of glasses as you pass through your 50s, progressing to +2.5 or +3 by the age of 65 to 70.
LASIK Blended Vision allows us to correct the symptoms of presbyopia and boost clear reading vision, all using our advanced A-LASIK procedure, the same approach used for our remarkable 100% 20/20 success rate for all common short-sighted prescriptions.
Laser Blended Vision Treatment
Laser eye surgery for patients who need reading glasses is carried out using a technique known as Blended Vision, pioneered in the UK by David Allamby. With Blended Vision, one eye (usually the dominant eye) is treated to correct your distance vision and the other eye is treated to correct your near vision. The brain then blends these two images together to give you clear vision for both near and in the distance.
Around 90% of presbyopic patients are suitable for our Blended Vision option, which will be determined at your consultation. Unfortunately nearly 10% of patients are not eligible due to limitations in how some brains are wired, being unable to blend the images from each eye together. At the consultation, we can easily screen out those patients who will not like Blended Vision with a simple lens test.
For those who have received Blended Vision, if necessary, the reading eye can be retreated in later years to keep up with any age-related changes.

Laser eye surgery, or laser refraction surgery, refers to several procedures used to correct refraction issues within the eye.
Most often patients will be experiencing short-sightedness (myopia) long-sightedness (hyperopia) or astigmatism. With older patients showing signs of presbyopia (old-age related long-sightedness).
Lens replacement surgery, such as refractive lens exchange (RLE), is growing in popularity. Lens exchange procedures have a low level of risk, permanent results, a positive financial outcome when compared to traditional vision correction and speedy recovery times.
Hyperopia (far- or long-sightedness) is a common refractive error where distance vision may not necessarily be affected, but objects closer to the subject are poorly defined and blurry. However, it is worth noting that everyone will experience hyperopia differently.
Myopia, commonly referred to as near-sightedness or short-sightedness, is a condition that hinders the effective range of vision, with objects only appearing clear and in focus when nearby. Myopia is a widespread cause of poor eyesight, with an estimated 1 in 3 people in the UK having myopia.
