Presbyopia Management for Patients without Cataract

Universal Challenge:
Individualized Approach

Clinical Challenge

Providing solutions for presbyopic patients without cataract

There is a large and growing population of presbyopic patients worldwide.1 A multinational study has shown that by age 55, approximately 80% of people suffer vision impairment due to presbyopia.2 Providing solutions for presbyopia correction that satisfy individual needs and improve quality of life has been a particular challenge when caring for patients without cataract.

As a relatively young patient without any problems of cataract, my choice was oriented towards corneal refractive surgery with PRESBYOND rather than clear lens exchange and IOL implantation.3

Clinical Solution

Corneal refractive surgery for presbyopic patients without cataract

Laser corneal refractive surgery offers a safe and less invasive option compared to other surgical options for correcting presbyopia in patients without cataract who are seeking independence from glasses or contact lenses.4,5
Laser refractive surgery approaches include monovision, multifocality, and Laser Blended Vision. These different procedures differ in their ability to provide continuous clear vision from near to far.6,7

ZEISS Solution

ZEISS Corneal Refractive Workflow for Presbyopia Management

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision from ZEISS is a LASIK-based procedure that enables clear vision from near, intermediate to far distance. PRESBYOND® achieves this by correcting the refractive errors, inducing micro-anisometropia and controlling the spherical aberration to optimize the depth of field of each eye. This approach aids the brain in merging the images from both eyes, creating binocular vision while maintaining contrast sensitivity and preserving stereoacuity.8,9

What attracted me to undergo PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision was that it offers the highest patient satisfaction with good functional vision and the safety and track record of Femto- LASIK.10
