Traditionally, prescription glasses and contact lenses have been used to aid with farsightedness and reading glasses and bifocals have been used to help with presbyopia. These options are not only a hassle, but they can be expensive to maintain.
Here at Providence Eye & Laser Specialists, we are pleased to offer several different vision correction surgeries to people who previously thought they had no options. If you think you are "too old" or "too farsighted" to have laser vision correction surgery, think again. Thanks to advancements in technology, those who were previously thought to be too old or too farsighted for LASIK now how a safe, permanent option for laser vision correction surgery.
Our surgeon here at Providence Eye, Dr. Trey Nunnery, recommends Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) for two types of individuals:
The RLE procedure involves removing your eye’s natural lens and replacing it with an artificial Intraocular Lens (IOL) that is designed to match your specific vision needs. After a comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Nunnery will help you determine which type of IOL (monofocal, multifocal, extended depth of focus, or toric) will best help you reach these goals.
