Customized. All distances. Immediate.
PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision from ZEISS is an advanced method for treating patients with age-related loss of accommodation, also known as presbyopia. It offers the opportunity to achieve freedom from glasses by combining the simplicity and accuracy of corneal refractive surgery with the benefits of increased depth of field in retaining visual quality. As a surgical solution based on the naturally occurring spherical aberrations of the eye, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision extends the scope of customized ablation beyond the limits of conventional monovision laser methods in several ways.
Whether for its customized treatment profiles, its visual acuity at all distances, its indications range or its immediate impact, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is a clear treatment choice for the fast growing demographic of presbyopic patients.
Generally speaking, conventional monovision methods utilize standard ablation profiles. In the case of PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, they are customized for each eye individually because of the increased depth of field.
PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is a truly customized approach for treating presbyopic patients. It incorporates preoperative wavefront data to fine-tune the depth of field for each eye individually. The functional age of the patient’s eye is also factored in. Thereby, a personalized nomogram is created per eye for optimized target refraction. The monovision component can be preadjusted for the patient’s tolerance level. Also, different optical zone sizes can be selected to account for the patient’s pupil size.
Ideal for a growing demographic
As an optimized laser method for age-related loss of accommodation, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is ideally suited for serving the needs of patients 40-60 years of age who are interested in more sophisticated and less invasive methods to regain their reading ability.
Following the same workflow as established LASIK procedures, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision combines the convenient binocular treatment planning of the CRS-Master® with the proven comfort and workflow of the MEL® 80 and the MEL 90 excimer laser from ZEISS.
What also clearly sets PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision apart from other laser techniques is the immediate positive impact it has on patients’ vision. Within the first day patients are able to read again!
Appropriate for most patients
A key advantage of PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision is that it is proven to be tolerated by more patients than conventional monovision. It is effective for treating up to 97% of all presbyopia-related forms of impairment as compared to only 59-67% for conventional monovision. Even presbyopic patients with emmetropia and astigmatism can be treated. In fact, it has the potential to achieve a far greater success rate than any comparable treatment.
A competitive edge
PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision allows refractive practices already using MEL 80 or MEL 90 excimer laser and CRS-Master from ZEISS to significantly expand their LASIK repertoire and increase the patient base. For most patients, a positive effect is that they can read without glasses the very same day. As such, PRESBYOND Laser Blended Vision offers a decisive competitive advantage over LASIK practices only specializing in monovision treatment methods.
