Presbyopia-correcting IOLs are a type of intraocular lens that can help correct age-related vision changes. These lenses can improve near, intermediate, and distance vision, reducing the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
Presbyopia is a normal part of aging and happens to almost everyone. The natural lens inside of the eye, responsible for focusing light onto the retina, is normally flexible. This flexibility allows the eye to move to accommodate the close range. With natural aging, this lens loses its elasticity, becoming less flexible and unable to accommodate near vision.
Until recently, with advances in technology, most people would manage the effects of presbyopia using reading glasses. However, it can be frustrating to need to reach for a pair of reading glasses many times a day. For those who find reading glasses inconvenient, premium intraocular lenses, or KAMRA® inlays may be a solution to consider.
