Presbymax is a complex laser eye surgery procedure, available solely on the Schwind Amaris 1050RS. You can undergo Presbymax surgical procedure to correct long-sightedness (hyper myopia), astigmatism (irregularly shaped eye), short-sightedness (myopia), and presbyopia (reading vision problem).
Presbymax is a surgery that helps in the adjustment of the eye optics and extends the non-dominant eye's depth of focus. The extension of the depth of focus creates a smoother transition between close and far objects to give a complete range of focus.
Presbymax treatment is less invasive because it does not require the surgeon to replace or touch the lens. The procedure is also very common and requires only a few minutes per eye. It alters the cornea and how it focuses the light entering into the eye. Usually, the cornea channels light from one focus point, but this treatment shapes the cornea in a way that it directs light accurately from more than a focal point.
There are a few differences between Presbymax and Presbyond laser treatment for blended vision. The differences lie in the extent each laser treatment changes the shape of the eye, the technology used, and the level of near-sightedness the non-dominant eye is made to have.
Presbymax and Presbyond laser treatment procedures both need anaesthetic eye drops, and they require the surgeon to make a flap in the cornea before using a laser to reshape the cornea.
However, Presbymax conserves a lot of tissues and requires less laser ablation to change the cornea to the right shape.
Both Presbymax and Presbyond treatment procedures only take a few minutes, but Presbymax is faster than Presbyond by a few seconds.
During a Presbymax procedure, the surgeon makes a small change in shape, and this only creates a little difference between the two eyes. The Presbymax uses a 1050 Hz repetition speed and combined with 7-dimensional eye tracking which only the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser can achieve. This creates room for a high level of precision that maximises the patient's visual comfort without using glasses. This feature of Presbymax makes it a superior treatment than Presbyond. You not only see things clearly which the standard LASIK laser eye surgery also achieves but you can focus clearly on distant objects, intermediately ranged objects, and read close. You can achieve all these without using glasses.
Some patients are not suitable for Presbymax.
The following patients may be able to undergo Presbymax treatment:
The surgeon will carry out a thorough exam on you to determine a suitable treatment.
You would have to stop wearing your contact lenses for some days before the surgery. The surgeon will try to ensure your ocular surface are optimised before the surgery using warm eyelid compresses and nutritional supplements.
The surgeon will use the bladeless all-laser treatment by first creating a microscopic ultra-thin flap on the cornea's surface using the Zeimer Z8 femtosecond laser. Next, the surgeon will model the cornea using the Schwind Amaris 1050RS laser.
Before the process, the anaesthetist will numb your eye by applying anaesthetic drops. This makes the process painless. The surgeon uses each laser for only a few seconds, so the procedure lasts for a few minutes.
You are allowed to go home to rest for a few hours after the surgery. By the next day, you should have excellent vision and you should be able to carry out most of your regular activities like reading, watching TV, working and driving.
Try not to engage in any vigorous exercise for about 5-7 days after your treatment. You can carry out simple activities after about three days, and you can shower by the next day. It is best if you avoid applying make-up for about 3 days after the treatment and swimming for 2 weeks after treatment.
By the next day after your treatment, you will regain distance, reading and intermediate vision and be able to perform your regular activities without glasses.
Your natural vision and comfort will gradually adjust and improve for several weeks to about 3 months after your treatment.

I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
