Ideal for the over 45s, presbyopia surgery (also known as a Clear Lens Exchange, Refractive Lens Extraction, or Natural Lens Exchange) can correct both long and short-sightedness in one proven, permanent lens replacement procedure – even if you’ve got astigmatism. At the same time, presbyopia surgery also prevents or eliminates cataracts – one of the leading causes of vision loss worldwide.
If you wear different glasses for distance and near vision, or wear bifocal, varifocal or multi-focal contact lenses, then presbyopia surgery may be the answer you’re looking for.
The best vision solution for presbyopia
Your eye is subject to the same ageing factors as the rest of your body, and as you age your eye’s lens becomes harder and firmer. As your lens becomes less flexible, it can no longer flex and change shape to focus on close-up images. As a result, these images appear out of focus. This is known as presbyopia.
Presbyopia is a natural condition that tends to affect us as we reach our 40s and 50s. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to reverse or even stop the ageing process and protect your vision, letting you retain your youthful outlook and continue living the active lifestyle you’re used to? Presbyopia surgery replaces the hardened, inflexible lens in your eye with an advanced introcular lens that can give you pin sharp focusing at short, middle and long distances.
This non-laser procedure can even be given to patients who have astigmatism or a very high or complicated prescription. So if you’ve been wearing glasses all of your life for near- or far-sightedness, presbyopia surgery may be able to let you live the rest of your life without glasses. And because the intraocular lens isn’t subject to the normal process of aging you have the peace of mind knowing you will never develop cataracts later in life.
Safe, proven, permanent
The first ever intraocular lens surgery was carried out in the UK in 1949. Since then the processes, technologies and equipment involved in presbyopia surgery have improved and evolved to become one of the safest surgeries in the world.
Presbyopia surgery can help you stop relying on glasses, and keep you feeling young and confident while you work, rest and play. Now you can rediscover your life in detail with New Vision Eye Clinic.

Recently, Dr. Michael Gu (Managing Director of New Vision Eye Clinic) and Dr. Jefferey Lian (New Vision Eye Clinic’s Chief Physician) appeared on the I.C.S. TV show, Culture Matters. You can watch a shortened version of the show below.
In honour of China’s 18th National “Eye-care Day” (which is held on 6/6 every year), Dr. Gu and Dr. Lian discussed myopia and treatment options (including LASIK surgery) and also a new presbyopia surgery which has been introduced this month.
This new presbyopia surgery replaces your natural lens with a multi-focal artificial lens which gives you clear vision and also has the added benefit of preventing your eyes from ever developing cataracts in the future. This new treatment (also known as a Clear Lens Exchange or a Refractive Lens Exchange) can offer a glasses-free lifestyle for the over-45’s and give you perfect near, middle and distance vision.
Alongside the show’s host Alison Watts they also discussed some of the vision problems and treatment solutions facing the local and expat population in Shanghai, and also some of the differences in attitudes regarding eye care in China and overseas.
If you have any questions about the treatment options discussed during the show, you can call our International Patient Services team on 021-6437-7445, or email us at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’.
LASIK on the Frontlines is a powerful documentary which outlines the clinical research, dedication and discipline that went into evaluating the safety and effectiveness of LASIK under the most extreme, mission critical conditions encountered by the US military’s personnel.
Nearly two years in the making, the video recaps the experiences of two of the US military’s top ophthalmologists, Navy Capt. Steven Schallhorn, M.D. and former Navy SEAL Capt. Frank Butler, M.D. as they explain how they put LASIK treatment through its paces. Capt. Schallhorn and his colleague’s clinical observations of combined Femtosecond and Wavefront guided LASIK treatment showed such a great improvement in their test subjects that their program was rolled out across the whole of the US military. Now, all US military personnel headed into combat are eligible for refractive surgery and to date nearly half a million American front line troops have had the procedure.
Having proved the safety and efficacy of LASIK treatment in troops in the most extreme and harsh conditions that the frontline can throw at it, Capt. Schallhorn’s studies led the way for acceptance of refractive treatments in NASA astronauts – the final frontier for LASIK. Capt. Schallhorn says of this milestone, “NASA’s approval is further evidence that today’s LASIK exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness.”
