Tired of being dependent on reading glasses? Laser Blended Vision aims to give you independence from reading glasses allowing you to read, use the computer, and your smart phone without glasses. The sophisticated laser program from Carl Zeiss gives more depth of focus than standard monovision, which other lasers can not provide. 

  • IS LASER BLENDED VISION FOR YOU?

    Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your ability to focus on near objects. It happens to everyone and can start as early as age 40 years. Reading glasses will normally overcome the problem.

    Laser Blended Vision aims to restore your near vision and give you independence from reading glasses.

  • THE PROCEDURE

    Laser Blended Vision is laser eye surgery using blade-free femtosecond and excimer laser technology. The technique uses the same equipment as for LASIK. 

    Your dominant eye is treated for distance vision and your non-dominant eye is treated for close vision (reading) eliminating the need for all types of glasses.

    Laser Blended Vision is performed as day surgery with the laser treatment taking only seconds. Recovery time is short with only mild discomfort and slightly blurred vision for up to 4 hours after the procedure. 

  • RECOVERY TIME

    Laser Blended Vision will give you 20/20 or better distance vision and the ability to see close up, such as reading without glasses.

    The time taken to adjust and fully feel natural with blended vision can vary from person to person. On average, patients find they are able to return to their daily lives, glasses-free, the day after the procedure.
