Horizon Laser Vision Center offers a full suite of proven treatment options for almost every eye. With the addition of PRESBYOND laser blended vision, we are uniquely equipped to serve patients living with presbyopia.
Presbyopia is a refractive error that eventually develops in adults. As the eye’s natural lens ages, it thickens and stiffens, preventing it from fully focusing on near objects, such as fine print when reading.
What is PRESBYOND?
PRESBYOND is an advanced LASIK solution well suited for people with busy and active lifestyles who find reading glasses inconvenient. PRESBYOND is fully customized to each patient, aiming to achieve vision in focus at all distances (near, intermediate and far) after surgery without the use of glasses.
How Does PRESBYOND Work?
The patient’s dominant eye is corrected for distance vision, and their non-dominant eye is corrected for near vision. In the intermediate zone, PRESBYOND creates a customized fusion of the two images: the Blend ZONE. Thanks to the Blend Zone it is easier for the brain to merge the images of the two eyes allowing for normal focused vision at all distances.
The Benefits of PRESBYOND
- Works like LASIK: Since PRESBYOND is an advanced form of LASIK, patients benefit from this well-established procedure with proven long term results.
- Customized treatment: Your PRESBYOND treatment is based on an individualized profile which is tailor-made for you.
- Minimally invasive: Much like LASIK, Presbyond is done on the cornea, but with a smaller incision, making it far less invasive than other types of refractive surgery.
- Quick recovery: Patients often experience clear vision within 48 hours of their procedure. In fact, it’s not uncommon for patients to start reading without glasses the very same day.
