Presbyopia treatment in Tunisia
About Presbyopia treatment
Presbyopia is a vision defect that occurs starting from the age of 40, where there is a reduction in the accommodative ability of the eye. Due to aging, the lens loses its flexibility and elasticity.
Therefore, the eye is unable to focus correctly. The sighted person has then to keep his book or newspaper away from him to be able to read. Fortunately, there are several surgical techniques dedicated to vision correction for people with presbyopia. By using the Presbylasik or Supracor these people will no longer need to wear glasses in any case.
Presbyopia treatment by Presbylasik
The purpose of Presbylasik is to restore the multifocality of the cornea by creating two viewing zones onto the cornea. A central zone for near vision and a peripheral zone for distance vision.
The intervention of Presbylasik, same as the Lasik, is to cut a corneal flap with the Femto laser, then lift it to allow the work of the excimer laser. This component will be repositioned without suture. This operation is painless and takes only a few minutes.
Presbyopia treatment by SUPRACOR
The Supracor is the latest generation of multifocal laser treatments for presbyopia. The advantage of Supracor is that it allows a symmetrical correction of the 2 eyes for near vision and far vision. It also allows treatment of patients who do not have clear ocular dominance.
