Presbyopia Correction

Most people over 40 years old need to use reading glasses or bifocals to read small print. This is due to the natural aging of the eye where the lens becomes less flexible, also known as Presbyopia. Although the aging process cannot be reversed, we can remove the natural lens through Clear Lens Extraction and replace it with a Multifocal Lens Implant. The ReZoom and ReSTOR implants can return that"20 to 30-something" vision safely and permanently.

Please refer to the Clear Lens Extraction and Multifocal Lens Implant sections for more information.

Clear Lens Extraction

Clear Lens Extraction (CLE) is an outpatient procedure where the natural lens of the eye is removed before it becomes cataractous. CLE is designed for patients who are not eligible for Laser or Implantable Contact Lens surgery. The procedure involves "washing" out the natural lens and replacing it with a permanent clear implant. CLE takes less than 5 minutes to perform and visual recovery takes only a few days. This is the same advanced procedure Dr. Temas uses for cataracts.

Consider Clear Lens Extraction if you:

  • are not a candidate for PRK, LASIK or Implantable Contact Lenses,
  • are over 40 years old and need glasses to read
  • want permanent correction of your prescription error
