Presbyopia treatment

Treatment of presbyopia has historically been limited to corrective lenses such as reading glasses, bifocals, multifocals, and contact lenses. Recent advancements in corrective eye surgery have expanded the number of available modalities for presbyopia correction. With more patients valuing freedom from spectacles and contact lenses, safe and effective surgical correction of presbyopia has become increasingly important.

Intraocular procedures for presbyopia correction include intraocular lens implantation with either a multifocal or accommodative lens. Extraocular procedures include corneal inlays and laser refractive surgery, which can be further subdivided into monovision LASIK, presbyLASIK, INTRACOR, and photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
