Do you want to use cataract surgery to reduce your dependence on reading glasses?   Presbyopia correction with cataract surgery makes many patients very happy.  Others find that the experience falls short of their expectations.


Which person are you? Your happiness with presbyopia correction depends on who you are, what you like to do, and how important it is for you to get rid of your glasses.  Specific anatomic features of your eyes may make you a great, or poor, candidate for presbyopia correction.

This website will help you understand your eyes and your refractive priorities.   It will help you understand the advantages and disadvantages of your choices using simulations.  You will learn the questions to ask yourself and your surgeon before committing your money and your eyes to presbyopia correction.

You will be directed to the subscription portion of our site.
