Everyone is affected by ageing. This includes your eyes. However, how clearly you see the world around you and which procedure is appropriate for you is also determined by other factors. Decisive factors for clear vision:
An extensive preliminary examination: FREE and personal.Book a preliminary examination
All ocular procedures start with a preliminary examination. This is the first, essential step to exactly identify the condition of your eye. What are your precise defects? The size of your pupil, the thickness of your cornea, the health of your eyes and possibly astigmatism together determine which procedure is appropriate for you.
A medical examination forms a major part of the preliminary examination. Your personal story is also important. How do you use your eyes in everyday life? What are your sight expectations? The eye specialist will give you a tailor-made treatment advice.
Laser eye surgery is the most well-known eye treatment, but it’s not a permanent solution. This is because laser eye surgery is only able to correct 1 strength: farsighted- or nearsighted vision. You’ve now reached a time of life when the ageing of your eye lens is already well under way. Your nearsighted vision isn’t as good anymore and your farsighted vision is deteriorating too because your natural eye lens has started to become opaque.
If you choose to have your distance vision treated with laser eye surgery, you will still have difficulty in reading. Although the monovision treatment can buy you some time, your natural eye lens will continue to age. You will eventually start to have difficulty reading again. So, laser eye surgery won't help you get rid of reading glasses in the long run.
The shape of your eye lens changes constantly to allow you to see clearly. Flatter for distance vision. More curved for near vision. This process is called accommodation.
Your accommodative ability decreases with age. The natural eye lens ages and becomes stiffer, which makes it more and more difficult for it to curve. You will need reading glasses to be able to continue to see clearly up close. In other words: you are now presbyopic.
