As we age, the lens inside our eye loses its ability to focus both near and far. We start to develop what is called presbyopia, better known as “short arm disease!” You may find that your arms can’t stretch far enough to read the newspaper anymore. Most people who experience presbyopia have to wear bifocals or reading glasses.
A clear lens exchange corrects nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia. A clear lens exchange uses some of the same successful techniques as cataract surgery to replace the eye’s natural lens with a customized artificial lens that corrects your vision.
