|Q & A : Is it possible to correct presbyopia using lasers as LASIK? |
Is it possible to correct presbyopia using lasers as “LASIK”?
No. Laser vision correction changes the curvature of the cornea.
Advantages of SuperSight Surgery Over LASIK
Proponents of SuperSight point out that if one has SuperSight Surgery instead of LASIK to correct vision, then the patient never will develop a cataract since the natural lens will already have been replaced by the plastic implant and plastic implants cannot get cataracts. Proponents would argue that patients in their 50-s or older already have natural lenses that have become stiff through presbyopia, causing the need for reading glasses or bifocals (a “dysfunctional lens”). Removing and replacing an older lens that does not function as well as a younger lens, they would argue, is more reasonable than removing a fully functional, flexible lens in a 30-year-old, for example, who is too young to have developed presbyopia.
