    What is presbyopia or eye strain?

    Presbyopia (commonly known as eye strain) is a natural consequence of the ageing of the eye’s crystalline lens which usually appears between 40-45 years of age.

    The eye’s crystalline lens loses its capability for focusing and accommodation which results in progressively reduced ability to focus on close objects.

    Symptoms of presbyopia

    The main cause of presbyopia (eye strain) is the ageing of the eye’s crystalline lens located behind the iris. The lens is responsible for focusing on objects at different distances, and when it stiffens as a consequence of the natural ageing process, accommodation and correct focusing of close objects are affected. This effect is similar to what happens when we try to focus on close objects with a camera using a long focus lens.


    • PSEUDOPHAKIC LENS– This procedure replaces the eye’s crystalline lens which has lost focusing and accommodation capability with an artificial (bifocal, trifocal or multifocal) lens that will assume its function


    • SUPRACOR ®  – Carried out with an Excimer Laser, it shapes a multifocal cornea that allows a functional vision at any distance
    • MONOVISION –also known as blended vision, one eye is corrected for close vision (reading eye) and the other for distant vision (dominant eye). The brain combines both images to obtain a correct monocular vision

    Select any of the following FAQs from our patients and check the answers. If your doubts are nor solved please use the contact form below to get in touch with us.

    Will I also have cataract surgery?

    No. Presbyopia surgery with intraocular lens implant replaces the eye lens that is beginning to blur. It might be considered a cataract surgery in the initial phase to eliminate the need of optical correction (eyeglasses or contact lenses)

    Is this a definitive procedure?

    It certainly is. Intraocular implants are permanent. If some residual prescription is left it may corrected with laser procedure. Intraocular lenses are only removed in exceptional cases.

    Can I be operated if I already had surgery to correct myopia/hyperopia/ astigmatism?

    Yes, you can. The cause for those refractive errors is completely different from the cause of presbyopia. Although all those conditions result in the need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses their origins are quite different. Previous surgery will not affect correction.

    Can this surgery correct my myopia/hyperopia/ astigmatism?

    Yes. All the refractive errors of a patient can be corrected with presbyopia surgery. If some residual prescription is left it may corrected with laser procedure.

    How long does presbyopia surgery with intraocular lens implant last?

    Surgery usually lasts 20-30 minutes per eye and is performed with local anaesthetics (eye drops) in most cases.
