Non-linear aspheric corneal ablation can be used to treat presbyopia

Presbyopia can be treated in emmetropic, myopic and hyperopic patients with refractive errors between +5.75 and -9.00 D using corneal non-linear aspheric ablation profiles to increase the depth of field in both eyes, in combination with micro-monovision. Patient satisfaction with this approach is high.

Myth or reality? Corneal refractive surgery to manage presbyopic patients

A corneal refractive technique can combine monovision and extended depth of field to create a wide, seamless range of functional vision. This can provide independence from spectacles.

The pathophysiology and pathomorphology of corneal ectasia: Part 4

Corneal cross-linking (CXL) is improving all the time, although all protocols retain the basic requirements for oxygen, riboflavin and UV light. Recent developments mean that CXL at the slit lamp is feasible, which will improve access to the procedure.
