“In my spare time I love to play golf. I have needed glasses for distance since I was 30 years old. For the last 10 years, I became increasingly frustrated because I started needing reading glasses as well. I don’t like the vision that varifocals gave me, and became irritated with having to swap between my distance and reading glasses all the time. My work was becoming almost impossible. I had refractive lens exchange (RLE) to both eyes with multifocal lens implants last July. I can now see better than 20/20 for distance and can read the tiniest print in newspapers – all without glasses! I have started reading for pleasure again, and I feel that my performance both at work and on the golf course has improved.”
John, 52 year old electrician and father of 3

What to consider when you’re aged between 40 and 60

After the age of 45 the lens inside the eye becomes less flexible so that 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.

Common solutions for people aged ~ 40 to 60

  • Spectacles
  • Monovision contact lenses
  • Reading glasses, bifocals, or varifocals
  • Conventional cataract surgery (NHS)

Bespoke solutions for those between 40 and 60

Since there are a variety of eye surgery solutions to the problem of blurred distance vision (whether it is caused by myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism) it is vital to tailor the solution to the individual patient’s eyes. Whilst laser eye surgery is a great option for many people, some patients with high prescriptions achieve a better quality of vision with lens replacement.
