Can you treat long-sight / replace reading glasses with laser eye surgery? Yes. Laser surgery can very effectively treat the need for reading glasses.
Blended Vision, pioneered by Focus’ very own David Allamby, can correct distance and reading vision at the same time.
Blended Vision uses the advanced Z-LASIK laser eye surgery technique. In this case, one eye is weighted towards distance vision and the other eye is weighted towards near vision. Using advanced optimised optics the depth of field from each eye is increased allowing a more natural “blend” between the eyes.
Blended vision for presbyopia is different from monovision where each eye has a single point of focus, one near and one far. The increased depth of field with Z-LASIK blended vision allows each eye to have a range of focus and a significantly better visual experience for the patient.
