New Treatment Eliminates Bifocal and Reading Glass Need

Until now, people could expect to need reading glasses or bifocals during or after middle age due to an aging process called presbyopia. LASIK, a proven technique for freedom from glasses for distance, was not effective for presbyopia.

But today, according to results from a Midwest eye surgical team led by Robert L. Epstein, M.D., and published in the Journal of Refractive Surgery, a process called presbyLASIK completely eliminated the need for all glasses for 92% of middle-aged patients, and the effect was proven to last beyond two years. Patients treated by the McHenry, Illinois group averaged 53 years old, and all were initially in bifocals and reading glasses.

The eye surgical group now has six years of follow up on the presbyLASIK technique. Dr. Epstein reports that 99% of their previously bifocal-bound patients become completely or nearly fully out of all glasses. According to Epstein, presbyLASIK applies not only to people with otherwise normal eyes who wear reading glasses or bifocals, but also to people who had cataract surgery in the past and then wish to be out of glasses. Epstein states that variations of the new technology also help some people who are not LASIK candidates.
