With the SCHWIND AMARIS® laser, the most advanced PresbyMAX® software is now available.  With PresbyMAX® it is possible for the first time to treat short sightedness, long sightedness and astigmatic patients who have limited ability to change focus from long to short.  

PresbyMAX® is a promising surgical alternative for the correction of presbyopia, initiating the second generation of presbyLASIK techniques. PresbyMAX® is the first systematic and scientifically based approach for the correction of presbyopia with an excimer laser. It is an excellent option for the compensation of initial and intermediate presbyopia in patients with spherical equivalent between 4.00 and -4.00 D. The use of a mathematical model for predicting postoperative outcomes avoids contrandications of presby-LASIK that may lead to visual acuity problems postoperatively.


The procedure

PresbyMAX® designs the multifocal ablation profile according to the predicted postoperative outcomes for long and short distances. A central area is created for short vision and a peripheral area for distance vision. Multifocality, created with biaspheric ablation profiles based on optimized mathematic curves, provides adequate transitions between long and short sighted vision.


What are the benefits?

Short sighted vision of presbyopic patients is significantly improved with less dependence on reading glasses.  Both eyes are treated together which create multi-focal vision in each eye. Short sighted vision of presbyopic patients, is significantly improved, providing sharper vision without the need for additional aids such as glasses and contact lenses.
