Without reading glasses

Presbyopia

More than 1.5 billion people in the world and 4.5 million people in Hungary are affected by the problem of presbyopia.

This is the reason we see nearby objects more and more obscurely at around the age of 45 to 50; newspapers, menus, magazines, price labels and text messages all become difficult to decipher. Reading glasses have been the most commonly used solution so far, but they are uncomfortable for many, give away our ages and significantly affect the quality of our lives. SUPRACOR laser vision-correction treatment gives back the joy of sharp vision to those over fifty as well, allowing them to free themselves of reading glasses.

SUPRACOR, providing excellent visual acuity for objects at long, short and also medium distances, is a fast, painless and safe intervention. What’s more, it also offers a solution to those who have undergone some kind of previous laser dioptre-correction treatment. Optimum Laser Centre for Better Vision is the only institution in Hungary with extremely precise laser equipment and the required experience.

The development of presbyopia

Following birth, our eyes undergo continuous development and continuous changes. By adulthood, the diameter of our eyes has grown by 25%. At the age of one, our visual acuity is still only 25%; however, by the age of 5 we have developed total visual acuity. Accommodation is a change in the values of a dioptre. This makes it possible to see objects at both long and short distances. Accommodation is ensured by the contraction and relaxation of the ciliary muscle. The adaptability of the eye (accommodation) is 12-16 dioptres, but with an increase in age this ability decreases proportionately by 2.5 dioptres per decade, and by the age of 55 accommodation stops.
We do not even notice this continuous change until the age of 40-45. At this stage, the accommodation of our eyes is around just 3 dioptres, which means that we have to search for the distance which provides the appropriate visual acuity for reading.
Then, in the next 10 years we finally lose our sharp vision of objects within a distance of 1.5 to 2 metres, which is the distance in which most of our daily work and routines take place.
