Presbia Flexivue Microlens™

The Presbia Flexivue Microlens™ offers a solution for people who are looking for a way to read common items such as newspapers, restaurant menus, cell phone messages and supermarket labels without glasses. The benefits of an implanted lens outweigh glasses, which can easily be lost, misplaced, broken or scratched. And in a culture of youthfulness and healthy lifestyles, people do not like to be burdened with reading glasses.

The Microlens is implanted in a simple three-step procedure.

  • Step One

    Pocket Creation: A pocket is created in the cornea of your eye using a femtosecond laser.

  • Step Two

    Microlens Implantation: The Presbia
    Microlens™ is inserted into the pocket.

  • Step Three

    Implantation Complete: The pocket seals itself, holding the lens in place at the center of the visual axis. The lens is barely visible to the naked eye.

How it works

An uncorrected, presbyopic lens experiences restricted muscular flexibility. This causes the focused image to occur behind the retina, resulting in an out-of-focus image at the retina. By contrast, the Presbia Microlens™, which is barely visible to the naked eye, can help near objects to be seen clearly by arriving in-focus at the retina.
