Aged under 40...

and hate wearing glasses?

What to consider when you’re aged under 40

Special Considerations

Up until the age of 40, the lens inside the eye is soft and flexible. This means that if we can give a person perfect vision in the distance; when their eyes are relaxed they will always be able to “pull focus” for near.

The commonest way to give clear distance vision is with laser treatment: LASIK or surface laser. For patients who are not suitable for laser eye surgery it is possible to implant a contact lens into the eye to give clear distance vision and again maintain the magical ability to “pull focus” for near.

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.
