What We Treat

Presbyond Surgery at Novomed

Presbyond is a laser eye surgery procedure that can correct presbyopia, the age-related loss of near vision. The procedure combines laser refractive surgery with the insertion of an intrastromal corneal ring segment (ICRS). This allows patients to achieve clear vision at all distances, without the need for reading glasses or bifocals.

At Novomed Ophthalmology Center in Dubai, we offer Presbyond surgery using the latest technology and techniques. Our expert ophthalmologists are highly skilled in this procedure and offer a comprehensive range of aftercare services to ensure your recovery is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

What is Presbyopia?

Presbyopia, often referred to as “tired eyes,” is a refractive condition that arises from the diminishing elasticity of the crystalline lens within the eye. This lens, which enables us to adjust our focus for objects at varying distances, gradually reduces its inherent flexibility and suppleness as the years go by. This decline in accommodative ability typically becomes noticeable around the age of 40 and progresses gradually over time.

What is Presbyond Surgery?

Presbyopia is a natural part of the ageing process and cannot be prevented. It leads to a gradual loss of the eye’s ability to focus on nearby objects, making activities like reading and using a smartphone increasingly difficult. Presbyond surgery is a precise and effective solution to correct presbyopia, freeing individuals from constantly relying on reading glasses or bifocals.

Presbyond Surgery Procedure

Presbyond surgery is a highly advanced and personalized procedure tailored to each patient’s unique visual needs. Here’s a step-by-step overview of the typical approach:

  • Consultation: The journey begins with a comprehensive eye examination and consultation at Novomed. During this assessment, the ophthalmologist will evaluate the patient’s eye health, vision, and overall suitability for the surgery.
  • Customization: Novomed utilizes state-of-the-art technology to create a detailed map of the patient’s eye, known as Wavefront technology. This map guides the surgeon in customizing the treatment plan to address the specific visual needs of the patient.
  • Surgery: The Presbyond surgery itself is a quick, painless, and bladeless procedure. While the procedure is generally painless, there may be moments when patients experience a sensation of pressure on their eyes. Typically, this sensation lasts for approximately 5-10 minutes for each eye and approximately 30 minutes for the entire procedure. It typically involves utilizing laser technology to reshape the cornea, allowing for improved near, intermediate, and distance vision. The surgery is performed with the utmost precision, and most patients experience minimal discomfort.
  • Recovery: Following the procedure, you will be brought to your room for rest, and the surgeon will perform an eye examination before allowing you to leave. Clear vision is usually restored for most patients by the next day. During the initial recovery phase, you may encounter a gritty sensation and heightened sensitivity to light, typically lasting for 24-48 hours. However, it’s essential to exercise caution for an extended duration, such as avoiding water contact with your eyes for one week and refraining from swimming, strenuous exercise, or contact sports for a month.
  • Downtime and Follow-up: The downtime after the surgery is relatively short and comfortable. Within a day or two, most patients can typically regain their ability to engage in regular activities. However, it’s essential to follow some post-operative guidelines to ensure the best results:
  • Medication: Patients may be prescribed eye drops to prevent infection and aid in the healing process. These should be used as directed.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Regular follow-up appointments at Novomed are essential to monitor progress and ensure the eyes are healing correctly. Adjustments may be made if necessary to achieve optimal vision.
