Presbyopia treatment – PRELEX and Raindrop Admin
Are you in your forties or fifties and finding yourself reading things at arm’s length? Never needed glasses but suddenly find you need them for reading? If you aren’t resigned to wearing reading glasses for the rest of your life, we have a solution: PRELEX and Raindrop.
After the age of about 45, our eyes start losing the ability to accommodate (focus) at short distances. This is called presbyopia and it usually presents as small print that is fuzzy close up but legible further away from your eyes. Eventually, however, reading glasses become essential.
PRELEX is a safe method that gives reliable results. This non-laser procedure involves replacing the original lens with an artificial, multifocal intraocular lens permanently implanted in the eye. PRELEX can correct vision and remove the need for prescription glasses entirely.
A newer method for treating presbyopia is Raindrop, a cutting-edge treatment used by leading ophthalmologists around the world. It involves implanting a microscopic hydrogel inlay 2 mm in diameter and 30 micrometers wide.
