Presbyopia

Presbyopia often occurs between the ages of 40 and 50: small sized text becomes increasingly dfficult to read. Thanks to state-of-the-art medical technology, we can offer you various solutions to free you from reading glasses.

Which Treatment of Presbyopia Is Best Suitable for Me?

Presbyopia can not be stopped by medicine or eye training. Thanks to modern medical technology we can offer you different ways to treat presbyopia to start a life without glasses. In a first examination and consultation we will inform you which method is best suitable for your eyes. For example the implantation of multifocal lenses can correct presbyopia and at the same time also other eye disorders like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. With the innovative LenSx laser lens surgery, EuroEyes now offers even more safety.

What Are the Symptoms of Presbyopia?

Near objects, such as text, cell phone screens but also computer screens appear increasingly blurred with age. This is usually compensated by holding the reading material or object in question further away and by using additional lighting. With the progression of presbyopia the problem increases and it eventually becomes impossible to compensate. If you have been suffering from nearsightedness or farsightedness in your younger years, presbyopia will still occur.

How Does Presbyopia Develop?

Young People without Presbyopia

Presbyopia is the natural aging process and is therefore not a disease. The flexibility of the natural lens gradually decreases from birth. While we are still young, the lenses in our eyes are still extremely flexible. It ensures that incident light rays are focused in the middle of the retina to form a focal point (Figure 1). When focusing in the distance, the lens flattens, whereas it curves to focus up close (Figure 2 + 3). This adaptability of the lens is called accommodation. It allows us to easily fixate on both close and distant objects, and depict a sharp image on the retina.

With Age, the Lens Loses its Elasticity

With age the lens loses its elasticity by a gradual hardening process and becomes increasingly stiff. Objects in the distance can still be seen because the lens is flat in the initial position (Figure 4). This makes the lens loose its ability to adjust for a sharp vision on close objects. In this context we speak of a loss of accommodation in the lens. With the loss of accommodation the lens is no longer capable of sharply depicting images on the center of the retina. The focal point is relocated behind the retina (Figure 5 + 6). This leads to reading problems at first and to blurred vision at a later point in time, even when working on a computer.

DYSFUNCTIONAL LENS SYNDROME

Dysfunctional lens syndrome, DLS for short, is a frequent, progressive loss of function of the lens inside the eye. All people between the ages of 45 and 60 suffer from this age-related disease. DLS is characterized by the progressive loss of the natural flexibility and clarity of the lens.

The three stages of DLS

The first stage is characterized by a loss of close-up vision. It often occurs from the age of 45. Those who affected begin to notice that their vision diminishes and letters blur in front of their eyes. Suddenly one is dependent on reading glasses.

The second stage occurs mainly in people between the ages of 50 and 60: near and far vision quality decreases.

The third stage of dysfunctional lens syndrome occurs in people over the age of 70 and is characterized by the appearance of cataracts. This is the opacity of the eye lens that leads to a loss of vision in some or all areas of the visual field.

Don’t worry, the dysfunctional lens syndrome is treatable.

By inserting trifocal and multifocal lenses, the dysfunctional lens syndrome can be corrected safely and precisely. The body’s own lens is replaced by an artificial lens (multifocal/trifocal lens). In addition to presbyopia, myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism can be corrected with artificial lenses. Due to the different focal points of the trifocal and multifocal lenses, vision at different distances is possible again without progressive vision glasses and reading glasses. Finally driving a car again, doing sports, reading and enjoying everyday life is possible – without glasses and annoying contact lenses.

Is the procedure safe?

Yes, the lens implantation procedure at EuroEyes is safe. The EuroEyes laser eye centres use the LenSx® femtosecond laser for surgical procedures at many locations. This eye laser, which is used for lens replacement, enables painless and very precise cutting of different tissue layers in the eye.
