Presbyopia is the loss of flexibility in the lens which makes it difficult to focus up close. It appears from the age of forty onwards.

The use of multifocal lenses is a definitive solution in the treatment of presbyopia. Lens implants are the most advanced solution in terms of design and technology since this prevents the need for glasses and allows you to focus at all distances.

The intraocular lens for the correction of eyestrain is the most effective solution because:

  • It gives a good quality of vision for distance, near and intermediate distance.
  • It is a definitive solution, as it prevents the progression of eyestrain.
  • It avoids the future appearance of cataracts with the visual discomfort that this entails.

We Call You


The Z-PRESBYOPIA treatment is a Presbyopia surgery with Multifocal Intraocular Lens implantation assisted by Femtosecond Laser.

This technique to implant the intraocular multifocal lens consists in substituting the hardened and cloudy lens with an artificial, multifocal lens.

The use of the femtosecond laser in replacing the lens with an artificial intraocular lens is an innovation with huge advantages in safety and quality of vision. The manual processes in traditional surgery are replaced by a pre-programmed laser. This corrects astigmatism with great precision and simultaneously ensures the optimal positioning and performance of the lens.

With this system the eye will be able to focus up close, at intermediate distances and from afar without the need for glasses.

The multifocal, intraocular lens does not change power to focus from afar or up close as the eye’s natural lens does. What happens is that three simultaneous focus zones are created in the retina, one for distance, one for intermediate and one for near vision. This, unlike glasses with progressive lenses, means that it is not necessary to look down to see up close and up to see at a distance. With progressive multifocal lenses you can see near, far or mid-distance from any positioning (up, down or face-on). The brain, naturally and without need for adaptation or learning, selects the image that it wants to use to see up close or at a distance.

The lens that we replace with the intracoular lens is a natural lens that no longer carries out its function of allowing the eye to see up close and at a distance. During the ageing process it gets cloudy, simultaneously causing changes in the visual acuity. Removing the lens prevents the possibility of developing cataracts in the future and means the visual acuity will be stable and permanent making this a definitive solution for presbyopia.

Frequently Asked Questions about Presbyopia Surgery

Indeed, in Vistalaser Ophthalmology we offer two alternatives to the progressive glasses: Laser surgery or multifocal intraocular lens implantation. By means of eye exams we can determine which is the best solution for you.

Unfortunately presbyopia is a visual problem linked to aging, so far not been able to develop any effective treatment to prevent development.

In preoperative tests our specialists detect any refractive problem in their eyes, if necessary can correct the problems of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism well as presbyopia.
Both laser operation, such as intraocular lens implants do not cause any pain during the procedure, because we use local anesthetic eye drops.

During operation, all you will notice is like water flowing, because we keep the eye hydrated with saline. Also you will notice the speculum, a medical instrument that allows us to immobilize the eyelids. After the operation it can disturb the excess of light due to dilation of pupils, and a slight sensation of brush that disappears in a few hours.

After laser surgery to correct presbyopia the patient begins to enjoy the results in a few hours and the next day you can return to your daily activities. Patients with intraocular lens implantation can also enjoy the results the next day, however we do not operate both eyes on the same intervention, we must wait a few days to have both eyes corrected.
Patients undergoing laser surgery may need cataract surgery in the future, as its lens can lose transparency over the years and should be replaced.

Instead patients operated with lens implant prevent cataract operation, because they kill two birds with one stone. Replacing the natural lens with an artificial lens corrects presbyopia and also avoid cataracts.
