UNDER AGE 40
In your twenties or thirties you might get fed up with your glasses and contact lenses. Many different laser eye surgery options are a great solution for younger eyes. Before the age of 40 the lens inside your eye is soft and flexible. This means we can treat a person and have them end up with perfect vision in the distance, while at the same time their eyes are relaxed and will be able to “pull focus” for near vision.
After 40, we all wind up needing reading glasses which can be frustrating and feel like premature ageing. At this age, the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible. You lose the ability to “pull focus” for near objects. This is called presbyopia or “short-arm syndrome” and creates a whole new set of vision problems for people in this age group. Luckily after a decades worth of treatment data, we can now treat presbyopic eyes and restore natural vision.
After the age of 60 the optical quality of the lens inside the eye may become worse, eventually turning into a cloudy cataract. Initially you can see fairly well with glasses, but later the vision is poor, even with glasses or contact lenses. Because these changes creep up slowly, you only realise how bad things were, once you correct the problem. New treatment advances allow cataract correction to be done at the same time as other visual correction procedures.
Eye surgery treatments we provide
Eye surgery is widely available, what makes the Custom Vision Clinic different?
When all you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. The Custom Vision Clinic does not offer a one-size fits all treatment. Instead, we select the most appropriate technique to fix your visual problem. It is possible to get around a golf course using only a seven iron for all the shots. It’s also possible to get around a golf course using only a driver. An expert achieves their best results, however, with a full set of clubs.
We provide the complete range of laser eye surgery treatments using Zeiss technology. We have brought together all the most advanced diagnostic equipment available in the country in order to provide the safest and most accurate lens implantation, lens replacement and cataract procedures.
