Laser eye surgery is normally the treatment of choice for most people under 40 who are looking to reduce their need for glasses or contact lenses. However, if you’re over the age of 40, it may not be the best choice when it comes to correcting your vision— lens surgery is an excellent alternative.
The vision correction benefits of lens surgery are very similar to that of laser eye surgery, with the added benefit of correcting age-related reading problems.
The treatment places a tiny, state-of-the-art synthetic lens in your eye, correcting your poor vision. It works in a similar way to a contact lens, but it is fixed in place and is made to your exact prescription and the size/shape of your eye.
