I was able to appreciate Doctor Donate’s great surgical competence. The result was perfect with thorough post-operative follow-up. I now have good visual acuity in my daily life and my physical activities. I can only recommend his high-quality care to those who want surgery of this type.

What a joy to no longer wear glasses or lenses! I am an ophthalmologist in Annecy, and I trusted my colleague completely. I quickly forget this old handicap; but appreciate being freed from this visual defect whether at work (behind the microscope), in my sports (swimming, fencing, mountain biking, skiing, paragliding, climbing, nights in a refuge…) or when travelling.

Dr Gregora M.

The intervention was carried out perfectly and painlessly in about 15 minutes. When I awoke, I had no pain and perfectly clear sight, which allowed me to work the next morning without glasses. Since the operation, all is well. I can drive and do sport without glasses. Thank you to Doctor Donate and team for their kindness and the quality of their care.

The surgical procedure was carried out under optimal safety and hygiene conditions and lasted very little time. I immediately rediscovered the pleasure of a clear and sharp vision both from a distance and from near. I can only recommend this surgery, which has given me visual comfort daily. I now see details that I absolutely couldn’t see with glasses (even with the best correction).

Dr Azzam A.

I arrived at the laser centre and had my surgery under local anaesthesia. I had no pain and returned home that afternoon. By the end of the afternoon, the pain had disappeared, and my sight was almost perfect. My only regret is that I didn’t have this intervention earlier.

I can now work all day on the screen without fatigue. I recommend this solution if you want to regain the freedom of your younger years.

Gain freedom from reading glasses if you’re 40-plus

In the toggles below, we have provided everything you need to know about PRESBYOND

This technique makes it possible to treat:

PRESBYOND laser treatment reshapes the cornea to allow the best focusing of optical rays on the retina regardless of the viewing distance. You will be able to see again naturally at all distances without glasses.

Advantages of PRESBYOND Laser:

  • It does not induce vision loss, notably in patients who only suffer from presbyopia.
  • It does not induce a reduction in visual quality at night
  • It has a very low risk of serious complications

We perform the PRESBYOND laser treatment using the LASIK all LASER technique. This method combines the use of two lasers whose precision and safety are unanimously recognized:

  • The laser FEMTOSECONDE VISUMAX ZEISS
  • The EXCIMER MEL 90 ZEISS laser

All operations carry risks, but complications do not happen by chance.

Thanks to our experience and the rigour of our processes, we make every effort to ensure the best results during your operation.

There are no serious complications to fear with PRESBYOND laser treatment. In particular, please note that it is impossible to lose your sight. But like all operations or medical treatments, some rare side effects have been reported. Do not hesitate to ask all your questions during the pre-operative consultation to be completely reassured.

PRESBYOND laser treatment is suitable for most patients; however, there can be a contraindication to this treatment.

In this case, we propose treatment for your presbyopia and your associated visual defects using the PRELEX method. This method involves implanting an intraocular lens to correct your vision permanently.

Your operation in three steps:

Before your operation

On the day of your treatment, you will spend an hour with us. Upon your arrival at the centre we will give you a pre-medication to relax you and a sterile robe to wear.

During your operation

During your procedure, you will be lying on an ophthalmological chair. We will apply a topical anesthesia in the form of eye drops.

The 20-minute procedure consists of two steps:

  • The VISUMAX laser creates a corneal flap. Your surgeon lifts the flap.
  • The EXCIMER laser reshapes your cornea correction your visual impairment
  • Your surgeon will then gently reposition the flap that naturally adheres to the cornea.

After that, the treatment is finished. The procedure is not painful and is perfectly safe.

After your operation

For your departure, it is necessary to be met by an accompanying person. We advise you to go home and rest with your eyes closed for 3 to 4 hours.

You will need to follow the surgeons instructions by instilling anti-inflammatory and antibiotic eye drops. We will need to perform a post-operative check-up between 1 and 10 days.

It is advisable to avoid situations where there may be a risk of infection for 3 to 4 days after your treatment.

On average, visual acuity for both near and distant vision improves by more than 93% after PRESBYOND.

Our results show that 100% of our patients can read without glasses: 10/10 from a distance and 7/10 close-up, 90% can read 10/10 from a distance and 8/10 close-up and 80% can read 10/10 from a distance and 10/10 close-up.
