However, getting older can often lead to problems with eyesight. But there’s no reason to accept wearing glasses or contact lenses forever if you want to seek a more effective and convenient solution.
Turning 50 usually means that you will be a less suitable candidate for LASIK and LASEK laser eye surgery procedures. But Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham offers a brilliant alternative that can turn back the years and give your eyesight a new lease of life.
Lens replacement surgery, also known as refractive lens exchange, is a good solution for over-50s because it deals directly with the lens in your eye. Over time, our lens becomes less flexible, adaptable and clear, a deterioration that gives us problems such as blurred distance vision.
During lens replacement surgery, our eye surgeon Mark Wevill will gently soften and remove your lens with an ultrasound instrument. It will be gently replaced with one of the latest intraocular lenses – all in 10 painless minutes.
This procedure can reduce the impact of ageing on your vision, so you can continue doing all the things you enjoyed in your 40s!
