PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision

Clear vision for far, near, and in between for those 45 years and older

What is PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision?

PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision  is an advanced type of laser eye surgery for patients who are 45 years or older and have no cataract. In addition to relieving you of your dependency on glasses for seeing at a distance, it can also significantly reduce, or even eliminate, the need for reading glasses for many years.

How PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision works

With this technique, one eye is corrected predominately for distance vision and the second eye is treated mainly for near vision. This is similar to the monovision procedure, which many opticians have been using with contact lenses successfully for years. The main difference, however, is that patients with monovision often complain about poor intermediate vision. PRESBYOND eliminates this problem, allowing you to see well at far, near and intermediate distances.

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, 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.

PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision: Your questions answered

The risks of this treatment for eyes are similar to LASIK surgery. After the PRESBYOND procedure, your brain needs to adapt to your new eyesight. Most people see immediate improvement, but it may take three to six months for the brain to fully adapt to this. There is a small chance that your brain may not adapt to your new eyesight at all. If this happens, the PRESBYOND procedure can almost always be reversed so that both eyes are corrected fully for distance. In this case, you will definitely need glasses for near sight. Dr. Arbabi will explain all the risks and the benefits of PRESBYOND when you meet for your comprehensive assessment.
The alternatives to PRESBYOND include:
  • Glasses: This could be bifocal, varifocal, or separate reading and distance glasses
  • Contact lenses: This can be multifocal contact lenses, monovision with contact lenses or wearing contact lenses and glasses
  • Surgical options include Refractive Lens Exchange, LASIK and intracorneal inlays.
