Problems reading close up?
When we reach our mid 40s, changes to our near vision make every day activities such as reading the newspaper or fine print, looking at menus, or text messaging more difficult. This is a natural process which affects everyone. This change to our eyesight is called presbyopia.
Presbyopia Treatment Options
Presbyopia is commonly corrected by wearing reading glasses which can often be inconvenient or uncomfortable. SupraCOR is the latest option available to treat presbyopia however not all people will be suitable. There are a number of other options available that may be more suitable for your eyes.

Supracor LASIK Eye Surgery Sydney
The SUPRACOR treatment involves two separate procedures, and is based on the well known, commonly used LASIK laser eye treatment for vision correction.
Firstly, a customized LASIK eye surgery procedure is performed to correct your vision, i.e. myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. This is then immediately followed by the SUPRACOR treatment to correct your presbyopia.
The SUPRACOR laser procedure is very effective for suitable candidates, generally taking between 20-30 minutes to treat both eyes.
