New advances to help presbyopia
AcuFocus is a non-invasive procedure that corrects presbyopia. AcuFocus can be performed on patients who have already had Lasik and has an added benefit of being reversible.
During the procedure that takes less than 30 minutes, the surgeon inserts a lens under the cornea of the eye.
The AcuFocus Corneal Inlay looks like a black ring and is smaller than a contact lens. There is a tiny hole (aperture) in the center of the inlay which helps improve vision in two ways.
- Creates a pinhole effect so near objects appear more clearly.
- Blocks unfocused light and only allows focused light to reach the retina. When light rays are focused, you may see a wider range of vision – near, intermediate and distance.
Unlike other presbyopic treatments, the AcuFocus Corneal Inlay can be removed.
The AcuFocus implant blocks unfocussed light, which in return, increases depth of focus. Vision is expected to improve within months or even weeks of the procedure.
