Q & A : Is it possible to correct presbyopia using lasers as “LASIK”? article

Is it possible to correct presbyopia using lasers as “LASIK”?

No.  Laser vision correction changes the curvature of the cornea. 
The cornea and the lens of the eye both play a role in focusing light rays onto the retina. 
As presbyopia is the deterioration in the lens’s ability to focus, surgery to the cornea will not correct the vision. 
Indeed, people who have had successful laser vision correction to correct their myopia or hyperopia will go on in later years to develop presbyopia. 
However presbyopia can be corrected by lens surgery as SuperSight Surgery.
