Correcting Aging Vision

People in their 40’s experience the progressive loss of focusing ability for seeing things at arms length and up close. This is called Presbyopia. For patients experiencing the near vision problems associated with Presbyopia, we perform a revolutionary procedure called Progressive Multi-focal LASIK or PML for eliminating dependence on eyeglasses, reading glasses and bifocals.

After age 40 you can still Ride The Waves. But you might not be able to read the surf report without your reading glasses. Learn More About Aging Vision
