Brusco Vision Offers Custom Lens Replacement (CLR) Procedure
Falls Church, Virginia -
Falls Church, VA, based vision correction center, Brusco Vision, would like to discuss custom lens replacement surgery with its community. Thanks to some of the incredible advancements in vision correction technology, Brusco Vision is now able to provide custom lens replacement, a procedure which can resolve age-related vision problems that tend to be quite prevalent in people over 40. Through Custom Lens Replacement (CLR),
the eye’s natural lens is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens to correct vision loss due to myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia or cataracts. The lenses greatly improve the patient’s vision, and unlike an eyeglass prescription, are all but guaranteed to last forever and prevent the future formation of cataracts.
“The human lens is a true evolutionary marvel,” says Dr. Michael Brusco. “When you are young, the natural lens is very flexible and allows us to autofocus on near and far objects and everything in between — much like the zoom function in a camera. Because of this, we don’t need reading glasses or bifocals. At some point in our 40s, however, the lens starts to become rigid and lose its flexibility. It degrades, like many other body parts do, as a part of the natural aging process. This stiffening causes the lens to lose the ability to zoom in and results in difficulty seeing up close. Over time, the lens becomes even more dysfunctional, resulting in loss of near vision —presbyopia — that requires the use of reading glasses or bifocals. This is the first stage of a condition called Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (DLS), which is a natural part of the aging process that affects your eye.”
As people approach their 40s, they often begin to notice their vision becoming blurry, even if they had LASIK in the past. This also happens to those who lead healthy lifestyles and is a normal part of aging. Most, as they get older, begin to lose the ability to read text on their phones and computers along with items like books, menus and newspapers. Additionally, the lens also becomes hard, yellow and cloudy, forming what is known as a cataract, further degrading the person’s vision.
“The good news is that you don’t need to be inconvenienced by the burdens of readers, bifocals and so on,” the vision correction center says. “A lot of people hate wearing any type of corrective lens, sometimes because they don’t like the way they look or the difficulty it adds to doing certain things with them on. Or simply because it’s annoying to find the ‘sweet’ spot. Other times, from the frustration of the on-off-on-off struggle as you switch between near and far tasks. This can lead to the problem of constantly misplacing your readers.”
CLR is safe, quick and simple, and it can fix countless issues. It not only corrects a glasses prescription, which corrects both the patient’s distance vision and near vision but also allows Dr. Brusco and his team of vision correction specialists to fix the clouding of the lens and provide better quality of vision at the same time. The treatment also removes the possibility of the patient developing cataracts in the future.
The procedure is rapidly growing in popularity, with more and more people opting for the procedure. The almost immediate improvement in vision combined with eliminating the chance of developing cataracts makes it an excellent choice for older people looking to ensure that their vision remains excellent well into their later years.
Brusco Vision says, “Unlike traditional contact lenses, implantable contact lenses are maintenance-free. It never dries out or gets dirty. You don’t have to put it in every morning or worry about it getting lost. And you can’t develop an allergy to it over time. Patients tell us they do not feel the new lens implant or notice it’s there, and it’s not noticeable to others. Unless you share it with others (and we hope you do), only Dr. Brusco will be aware that vision correction has taken place. The new lens will not alter the outward appearance of your eye, but it does drastically improve your vision. We offer different options for intraocular lenses. These lenses can be customized to meet your specific visual needs.”
