Reading Solutions

Live life to the fullest without glasses and contacts!

Advanced Vision Correction for Aging Eyes

With age, we begin to have problems seeing things close up, like the written word. Reading glasses and bifocals alleviate the condition but can’t solve it. The good news is, you don’t have to live with the frustration of aging eyes. There are advanced vision correction procedures that offer dramatic improvement, and the vision experts at Yaldo Eye Center can help you select the one that’s right for you.

Option 1: Monovision Lasik

Monovision Lasik is a wonderful alternative to reading glasses

When we are young, the lenses in our eyes are soft and flexible, allowing us to focus on objects both close and far away. After around the age of 40, the lens becomes more rigid and can’t change shape as easily as it formerly did. Thus, the difficulty of seeing things at close range, called presbyopia. Menus begin to get blurry, low light conditions make reading more difficult, and we can’t stretch our arms far enough to get whatever we are reading to come back in focus.
 

The simplest answer is reading glasses. Unfortunately, we quickly experience the multiple frustrations of losing them or forgetting to take them with us.
 

Monovision Lasik brings back your near vision:

 

 – One eye is corrected for distance, the other for up close

 – The brain adjusts and we see near and far without glasses or contacts

 – Then, we throw our reading glasses in the waste basket and celebrate!

Option 2: Multifocal Lens Implants

Eliminate bifocals or reading glasses with remarkable Multifocal Lens Implants (MLI’s) – Clear Lens Exchange

 – MLI’s replace your natural lenses

 – Close vision is restored

 – Distance vision is 20-20 or better in both eyes because of the MLI’s multi-focal capability

 – You won’t and can’t develop cataracts because your natural lens has been replaced!

 

Lasik can’t prevent Presbyopia nor can it prevent the onset of cataracts. If ever a bionic solution exists in refractive eye surgery, its Multifocal lens implants.
 

Dr. Yaldo corrects your nearsightedness or farsightedness by replacing your natural lenses with a new focusing system that allows you to see near, intermediate and far images in both eyes without glasses or contacts. Your vision becomes stable and is unlikely to change over time.
 

A variety of Multifocal Lens Implants are available, such as ReStore®, Technis®, and Crystalens®. Our vision experts will assess which option is best for you based on your lifestyle, vision and individual needs.
 

Multifocal Lens Implant surgery is painless. Anesthetic drops numb the eye and an IV delivers medication to keep you relaxed. In most cases, both eyes are done on the same day. In some cases, based upon medical history and other factors, the second eye is done a week after the first eye. Dr. Yaldo will recommend the right course of treatment for you.
 

This is why patients looking for a “Rolls Royce” surgery –the ultimate in life-long clarity at all distances – pre or post the onset of cataracts — Multifocal lens Implants is it.

Option 3: PresbyLasik

PresbyLasik, otherwise known as Multifocal Lasik is an advanced vision correction procedure for people who can still see well at a distance, but are experiencing deteriorating reading vision.

PresbyLasik is a type of laser vision correction that changes the shape of the cornea to correct both near and far vision. It preserves distance vision while also improving how well you see up close including increased depth of focus. Unlike Monovision, PrebyLasik allows people see better far and up close in both eyes by changing the shape of your cornea to create corrections on multiple focal levels. Dr. Yaldo is one of a handful of surgeons in the nation that have successfully performed hundreds of PresbyLasik operations.
 

In PresbyLasik, laser energy accurately reshapes the eye’s clear surface into different zones. The laser light is bent or refracted differently in each zone so that both near and distance vision can be achieved simultaneously.
 

Like conventional Lasik, PresbyLasik is a short, effectively painless procedure with a quick recovery. Most patients are ready to resume normal activity in just 1 day.
 


Option 4: The Symfony Lens

The Most Advanced, Remarkable, Implantable Lens To Date!

For many people, lasik surgery can provide even better than 20-20 vision and eliminate the need for reading glasses. But for those with cataracts or those who simply want the optimal procedure available, an intraocular lens, or IOL like the Symfony, will leave you breathless at the depth and clarity of your vision.
 

Dr.Yaldo: “After decades as an eye surgeon, I still become excited and amazed at the technological breakthroughs in our field. The latest product that adds a new dimension of clarity and versatility is the TecnisSymfony® lens by Abbott Medical Optics”.
 

Imagine that you suffer from the cloudy, blurry and altogether impaired eyesight caused by cataracts. Or, you have poor vision that even glasses and contacts can’t fully correct. Then, in a brief procedure, a surgeon implants a lens in each eye that gives you the best vision of your life that will last for the rest of your life. After a short recovery period, you’re reading 6-point type or clearly seeing road signs a quarter mile away. That is what the Symfony lens can do!

 – Other Alternatives – 

The Kamra Inlay

Presbyopia – An inability to see things up close

The KAMRA Inlay produces sharp vision close up. Approved in 2015 by the FDA,it is now an alternative to Monovision Lasik. Before Dr. Yaldo inserts the KAMRA Inlay, he corrects far vision with CATz Custom Lasik, which provides 20-20 vision or better. He then places the Inlay on the cornea of one eye to provide the near vision element. It’s painless and takes just a few minutes. The Karma Inlay is:
 

 – Microscopically small and thin, just 1/6th inch in diameter

 – Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, it’s a mini-ring with an opening in the center

 – Sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea

 – Is placed in only one eye, allowing close vision while maintaining distance vision in both eyes

 – Working together, the eyes allow you to see at all distances.
 

 


The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay

rainbowFor people 40-65 years old and reliant on bifocals or reading glasses, the Raindrop is an option to consider among several available at the Yaldo Eye Center for Presbyopia.
 

The Raindrop Inlay byReVision Optics is the first device to change the shape of the cornea to correct vision.
 

The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, like the KAMRA Inlay also described on our website, has been FDA approved for Presbyopia, or difficulty with near vision.
 

The Raindrop® Near Vision Inlay
 

 – Is a microscopic hydrogel inlay with characteristics almost identical to the cornea.

 – The hydrogel material is nearly 80% water, ensuring effective nutrient diffusion.

 – It is easily placed within the cornea under a LASIK-style flap.

 – It changes the curvature of the cornea so the front of the eye acts much like a multifocal contact lens.

 – It works re-shapes the surface of the eye to improve reading vision. Patients can return to work the next day. It is a walk in and walk out procedure.
