Vision Correction Over 40

Over 40 and curious about your vision options?

Dr. Matzkin recommends that most patients over the ago of 40 who are considering LASIK should consider multifocal lens exchange instead.

While LASIK will result in great distance vision with rapid recovery, the disadvantage is that near vision will be sacrificed in the upcoming years, and eventually distance vision will deteriorate.

Some surgeons offer or recommend monovision to treat one eye for distance and the other for near, but in Dr. Matzkin's experience this is an unsatisfactory option and does the patient a disservice in the long run. Patients will have mediocre distance and near vision, frequently complaining of eye strain and fatigue. Many of these patients end up needing glasses but are difficult to fit because of the unequal prescriptions in each eye.

Multifocal lens implants result in excellent distant, intermediate and near vision in both eyes. In addition, vision is stable for the rest of your life; these patients will not require cataract surgery in their later years.

Suitable candidates include those who are far-sighted or near-sighted as well as those with astigmatism.

I had both eyes done and I'm very happy I chose the multifocal lenses. I'm a golfer, and this has enabled me to not only see and follow my own golf ball, I can also see to record scores. The procedure itself was remarkably easy. The team that Dr. Matzkin has assembled were fantastic.

Everything is very, very sharp. The colors are darker and brighter than they have been in quite a few years. I can read now, and it's made such a difference at work - it's just amazing!
