Be self-reliant with less need for reading glasses

Eyes for every occasion

After reading glasses surgery, the goal is that you’ll no longer have more pairs of glasses than socks. Your eyes should be ready to work from the moment you wake up until the moment you go to bed.

No more fumbling around just to read a menu or use your phone.

Your youth is renewed

Your vision should no longer make you feel older than your years. We hope your energy levels will soar, and that your confidence will be back on track.

“I have not looked at a pair of glasses since, except for beautiful sunglasses that aren’t prescription! I am really looking forward to getting my Ducati and being able to go for a ride up to Mt Glorious – without glasses!” – Karen

Useful information about LASIK blended vision & Lens Replacement

Are you over the age of 45? Has your optometrist told you that you need to wear multifocal glasses or contact lenses? Perhaps you have good distance vision with visual aids, but now you’re dependant on them to see clearly up close too.

If the answer to these questions is yes, you could benefit from LASIK blended vision or lens replacement.

You should consider LASIK blended vision or lens replacement if you:

  • Would like to experience clear vision for all tasks
  • Are fed-up with searching for your reading specs
  • Dislike carrying around multiple pairs of glasses
  • Have problems reading menus
  • Would like to feel like your younger self again
  • Want the world to see you as you’re supposed to be – not hidden away behind a pair of specs

After LASIK blended vision and lens replacement you should be able to

  •  have clear vision free from contacts or glasses
  • savour the freedom to get up and go at a moment’s notice without stopping to worry about visual aids
  • spend more time focusing on the things and people you love, instead of taking time to find your glasses or clean your contacts
  • look and feel like the most confident version of yourself
  • savour life’s simple pleasures as you were meant to appreciate them.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

You may be a good candidate for LASIK blended vision or lens replacement if you:

  • Wear reading glasses or multifocals
  • Need reading glasses or multifocals
  • Do not have other medical eye conditions apart from requiring glasses
  • Are over 45
  • Are over experiencing problems achieving great vision for all tasks with your contact lenses or glasses

LASIK blended vision achieves clear vision for distance, computer, and reading.2Luger MHA, McAlinden C, Buckhurst PJ, Wolffsohn JS, Verma S, Arba-Mosquera S. Long-term Outcomes After LASIK Using a Hybrid Bi-aspheric Micro-monovision Ablation Profile for Presbyopia Correction. J Refract Surg. 2020 Feb 1;36(2):89-96. doi: 10.3928/1081597X-20200102-01. PubMed PMID: 32032429.

The results are very similar to an “Access” or “Desk” spectacle lens – that is, one eye will be able to see at both computer and reading distances. Your other eye (usually your dominant eye) will be corrected (if needed) for long-distance. This is achieved by a meticulously precise treatment plan tailored for each individual.

The procedure

Step 1: Come into VSON for an assessment where we can discuss treatment options, advise you on the best solution for your needs and answer any questions you may have in detail.

Step 2: The day of your procedure consists of further comprehensive testing and a consultation with Dr Russell prior to your procedure.

Step 3: After your procedure we advise returning home, taking your sleep medication to ensure a great result the next day.

Your visual results and well-being depend on the expertise of your laser eye surgeon.

Dr. Russell offers the following:

  • Experience. Dr. Russell has done more than 20,000 vision procedures.
  • A genuine investment in your health and well-being. Dr. Russell will be candid with you and recommend what he feels is right for your needs and goals. If he does not believe you would benefit from LASIK blended vision, he can recommend a suitable alternative.
  • A caring and personable demeanour. Dr. Russell will take the time to educate you about your options and answer all of your questions.
  • Leading technology. Dr. Russell uses technology that can make treatment safer, more comfortable, and more precise.3VSON | Laser Eye Surgery Brisbane. 2021.
