Schematic Diagram and cross-section of the cornea after a PresbyMAX treatment.
– The near zone typically makes it possible to read without corrective lenses.
– The intermediate zone favours good vision at medium distances (e.g at a computer workstation).
– The distant zone provides good vision at greater distances.
– The transition zone contributes to the stability of the treatment result.
Frequently Asked Questions about PresbyMAX
ARE GLASSES NECESSARY AFTER THE TREATMENT?
The goal of a PresbyMAX treatment is to achieve vision without glasses for day-to-day activities. In poor light, glasses can be advantageous for reading or seeing at a distance.
WHEN WILL I REGAIN MY FULL VISION?
You can generally read without glasses again only a few hours after the treatment. Good intermediate and distant vision typically sets in within a week. Further improvement in quality of vision and full adjustment to multifocal sight are generally complete after several weeks.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE THE TREATMENT?
Prior to your comprehensive eye screening, we advise patients to cease wearing contact lenses for several days before the procedure.
HOW LONG IS THE TREATMENT PROCESS?
We use a bladeless all-laser treatment. First the femtosecond laser creates a microscopic ultra-thin flap in the surface of the cornea then the SCHWIND AMARIS 1050RS laser models the cornea. Each laser is activated for only a matter of seconds and the entire procedure takes only a few minutes.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
The eye is completely numbed with the use of anaesthetic drops and the procedure is totally painless.
HOW LONG DOES RECOVERY TAKE?
After the treatment, we advise you to go home and rest for a few hours. Reading vision, intermediate vision and distance vision all return rapidly following the treatment such that the next day, most activities will be possible without glasses. However totally comfortable and natural visual results will continue to improve and adjust for several weeks following the treatment.
IS THERE AN AGE REQUIREMENT FOR PRESBYMAX?
PresbyMAX is preferred by the patients between ages 45-60 and whose eyes are not suitable for corneal multifocal technique and because of not being able to lens Exchange because of having a transparent lens.
