If you use Distance Glasses
Several treatment options are available for people who want to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses for distance vision correction. Some of the most common options include:
LASIK Surgery: LASIK (Laser-Assisted In Situ Keratomileusis) is a type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea of the eye. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and most people can resume normal activities within a few days.
PRK Surgery: PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) is another type of refractive surgery that uses a laser to reshape the cornea. PRK differs from LASIK in that the outer layer of the cornea is removed before the laser is applied. The recovery time is longer than LASIK but similar results can be achieved.
Implantable Contact Lenses: Also known as phakic IOLs (intraocular lenses), these are surgically implanted lenses that are placed inside the eye to correct refractive errors. This option is typically recommended for people with moderate to severe myopia or thin corneas.
Orthokeratology: Also known as ortho-k or corneal reshaping, this method involves wearing special contact lenses overnight to temporarily reshape the cornea. This can provide clear vision during the day without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
Refractive Lens Exchange: This is a surgical procedure that replaces the eye’s natural lens with an artificial lens to correct refractive errors. This is a more invasive procedure that is usually recommended for people with a high degree of myopia or hyperopia.
The importance of getting rid of glasses or contact lenses varies from person to person. Some people may find glasses or contact lenses a nuisance or interfering with certain activities, while others may have difficulty wearing them due to medical or physical conditions. Ultimately, the decision to undergo a vision correction procedure should be made after a thorough consultation with an ophthalmologist or surgeon, taking into account individual preferences, medical history and other relevant factors.
If you use Close Glasses
Presbyopia is a condition that occurs with age, typically starting around the age of 40, in which the lens of the eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on close objects. This leads to the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
Various surgical solutions are available to treat presbyopia and reduce the need for reading glasses. Some of these include:
Monovision LASIK: This involves correcting one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision. The brain then learns to use the appropriate eye for the task at hand, reducing the need for reading glasses.
Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLs): These are artificial lenses that can be implanted during cataract surgery or as a standalone procedure. They provide more than one focal point, allowing clear vision at different distances.
Presbyopic Lens Exchange (PRELEX): This involves removing the eye’s natural lens and replacing it with a multifocal IOL, similar to cataract surgery.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE): This is similar to PRELEX but is typically used for patients with high prescription or thin corneas.
While these procedures are effective in reducing the need for reading glasses, it is important to remember that they all have potential risks and side effects. It is important to discuss these options with an ophthalmologist and weigh the risks and benefits before making a decision.
Allograft Corneal Inlay (Allotex): is the brand name for allograft corneal inlay, a surgical treatment for presbyopia that involves placing a thin membrane in the cornea of the eye to improve near vision. Some advantages of the Allotex allograft corneal inlay for presbyopia include
Minimal surgical risk: The procedure involves implanting a small device into the cornea, making it a minimally invasive procedure with minimal surgical risks.
Fast recovery time: The recovery time for the Allotex allograft corneal inlay is usually fast and most patients can return to their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.
Improved near vision: The Allotex allograft corneal inlay improves near vision by increasing the depth of focus, which allows the eye to see objects more clearly.
No effect on distance vision: The device does not affect distance vision, so patients can continue to see far away clearly.
Long-lasting results: The Allotex allograft corneal inlay provides long-lasting results and most patients experience improvement in near vision for many years after the procedure.
It is important to remember that all surgical procedures involve some risks and the effectiveness of the Allotex allograft corneal inlay may vary by individual. Patients should consult with an ophthalmologist to determine if this procedure is right for them.
