What Are Presbyopia Correcting Implants?
Rid yourself of reading glasses, and improve your near vision back to what it used to be. Presbyopia correcting implants could be right for you if you find yourself reaching for your reading glasses more and more often. If you have noticed a decline in your near vision sharpness, this is probably due to dysfunctional lens syndrome, of which presbyopia is a part. If your ability to focus on close at hand details, such as text or small objects, is degraded once you pass the age of 45, then you may be in the first stage of presbyopia. Presbyopia correcting implants are devices implanted in the cornea of your eye in a simple and painless procedure, to provide you with permanent vision improvement in a safe and quick procedure.
What Are the Benefits of Presbyopia Correcting Implants?

What Is a Candidate for Presbyopia Correcting Implants?
Beginning around age 43, and continuing until age 50, your lenses gradually lose some of their ability to focus, as they become stiffer and less flexible. Presbyopia is part of dysfunctional lens syndrome, which has two more stages, and in stage 2, which occurs during your 50s and 60s, your lenses can have a tendency to turn yellow and hazy, and you may begin to experience night vision problems. Finally, in your 70s, you may experience true cataract formation. If you’re a candidate for presbyopia correcting implants, then Dr. Horn can help you maintain your vision for life, so that presbyopia isn’t holding you back any longer.
What Can I Expect from Presbyopia Correcting Implants?
The options for the surgical correction of presbyopia with presbyopia correcting implants continue to expand, and your procedure will be a quick and painless treatment with almost immediate results. At the outset of your treatment, a numbing anesthetic is dropped into your eye with eyedrops to assure your comfort. Then the implant device will be inserted into your cornea where a pocket has been created. Then your eyes will be bandaged, and you will be able to return home with almost immediately improved vision. We will provide you with specific post treatment instructions, and a follow-up appointment will be scheduled for a few days later.
