PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision
Clear vision for far, near, and in between for those 45 years and older
What is PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision?
How PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision works
The main problems with monovision stem from the fact that the monovision contact lens is only tolerated by 59 to 67%** of patients. In contrast, the PRESBYOND procedure works in 97% of patients*. The reason for this is because with traditional monovision, the focusing power of one eye is for distance only and the other eye’s focusing power is for near only. This creates an area of compromised vision in the intermediate range called the Blur Zone
In contrast, the sophisticated laser used in PRESBOYND creates an overlap between your two eyes so the eye corrected for distance has some near focus and vice versa. This is what we call the ‘Blend Zone’. The unique ‘Blend Zone’ makes it easier for the brain to maintain its binocular vision by merging the images of both eyes for your normal 3D vision. Most patients experience an immediate improvement.
You may feel reassured knowing that after the age of 40, your glasses prescription is unlikely to change significantly unless you develop cataracts or other eye diseases. In fact, according to one study published on gov.uk, in 10 years, the average change in glasses prescriptions is less than 0.5 units***.

Who is a good candidate for PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision?
PRESBYOND® is especially well suited for people 45 years and older without cataract who have busy and active lifestyles and for whom reading glasses are not convenient.
It is also effective for treating patients with presbyopia (farsightedness) as well as those who are short-sighted or have astigmatism.
The PRESBYOND® vision correction surgery is customised for each patient, so your first step is to take a detailed assessment with Dr. Arbabi. Your personal vision requirements, hobbies and your expectations are important factors. He will ascertain which is your dominant eye, and test your tolerance for monovision.
After a comprehensive assessment Dr. Arbabi will meet with you in person to discuss whether or not PRESBYOND®Laser Blended Vision is right for you.
