About Aging Eyes Vision Correction
As we all age, we gradually lose our natural ability to readjust our focus from far to near. This normal unavoidable condition is called “Presbyopia.” For most individuals with presbyopia between 40 and 50 years of age, they begin to notice that reading small print up-close either requires additional effort, more light, reading glasses or bifocals, or if they are already “near-sighted,” they have to remove their glasses to read comfortably.
Prof. Shahid Femto Lasik & Day Care Center is on the forefront of technology and leads the way in vision correction procedures for aging eyes. No matter your stage in life, our surgeons are capable of fully customizing your treatment plan for optimal results.
No sutures are required after replacing the cap. The surface is kept dry for several minutes and is then flushed with antibiotic eye drops. An eye shield or patch is applied. After LASIK Surgery, patients may experience moderate burning or itching in the eye. The shield is removed the morning after surgery. For many patients the vision will be greatly improved after the patch is removed, whereas for others, variable improvement will be noticed with greater improvement as the eyes continue to heal. This depends on the amount of astigmatism present at the time of surgery. Eye drops will be prescribed. In most cases, patients are able to return to work in a matter of a few days. Most activities may be resumed almost immediately. The face however should not be placed under water for at least two weeks. Initial findings indicate the advantages of LASIK over PRK for high myopia:
- Cataract Surgery – This surgery removes a â€œcloudyâ€ natural lens in the eye and replaces it with an implantable lens. It is the most common surgical procedure performed in the United States today. There are many lens options to choose from and Medicare has made it possible to select a standard lens (covered under insurance benefits) or to opt for a deluxe lens that is partially covered under patient benefits. Deluxe lenses include accommodative and multi-focal designs to reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses following surgery.
- Premium IOL’s – The only way to see clearly after a cataract matures is to have it removed and then replaced with an intraocular lens, or IOL.
- Refractive Lens Exchange – RLE is a procedure for patients ages 40+ without a cataract. This procedure removes the natural lens in the eye and replaces it with an implantable lens to change the focusing power. It is very similar to a cataract procedure and is available in different lens designs to correct, nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and near vision.
- Refractive Cataract Surgery - offers you a whole new world of improved vision beyond what basic cataract surgery can provide. It’s an additional level of care that brings together the latest technological innovations in eye surgery to help obtain the best vision your eyes are capable of seeing.
