Recently, TV celebrity Carol Vorderman revealed that she had undergone blended vision laser surgery. She tweeted that she was “very happy” with the results and how she was tweeting without reading glasses for the first time in many years. So, what procedure did the former Countdown star actually go through and could it work for you?
Blended vision laser (BVL) surgery is a procedure in which eye surgeons give patients improved range of vision by adjusting the depth of field in each eye. One eye is given better near sight and the other, enhanced distance vision – the result being vastly improved eyesight overall, from nearby to the horizon.
As we grow older, the lenses in our eyes harden and can struggle to focus nearby. Our natural lenses can’t be softened again. But by using the laser to create a special shape on the cornea, our range of vision can be rejuvenated.
BVL surgery is a combination of two techniques, including the copyrighted Presbyond procedure – Laser Eye Surgery Birmingham is the only provider in the Birmingham area to offer Presbyond.
This is a great option for someone in their 50s, like Carol and we’d be delighted to talk to you about how BVL surgery could transform your life too.
Another alternative way forward for older patients is lens replacement surgery – also known as refractive lens exchange (RLE). During this procedure, your natural lens is gently softened and removed, before being replaced by one of the latest, state-of-the-art advanced optic lens implants.
Quick and painless – both BLV and RLE take less than 10 minutes – lens replacement surgery could solve the conundrum of your failing eyesight and give you a new lease of life, just like Carol.
We’ll take you through a thorough personal eye assessment before discussing your options and selecting the most effective approach for you. So, why not start the countdown to better vision and give us a call today?
