Advantages of Presbyopia Surgery
Some of the potential benefits of presbyopia surgery include:
- Improved Vision: Presbyopia surgery can improve your vision and help you to see better. In some cases, it can even eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses.
- Corrective Lenses Not Needed: In some cases, presbyopia surgery can correct your vision to the point where you no longer need to wear corrective lenses. This can be a great benefit for people who don’t want to wear glasses or contact lenses.
- Low Risk: Presbyopia surgery is generally considered to be a low-risk procedure. Complications from presbyopia surgery are rare. Your surgeon will discuss surgical risk with you at the time of your consultation.
There are also some potential disadvantages associated with presbyopia surgery. These risks include:
- Under-correction or over-correction: In rare cases, presbyopia surgery can result in under-correction or over-correction. This means that your vision may not be corrected properly, or that your vision may actually be worse after surgery. In most cases, this can be corrected with a second surgery.
- Glare and halos around lights at night. Generally, these are well tolerated and reduced over time.
- Dry eyes: Dry eye is a condition that can occur after presbyopia surgery. In most cases, dry eyes can be treated with artificial tears or medication.
