By the beginning of the fifth decade, m0st people must reach for reading glasses to see the small print. There is no drug for far-sightedness, but doctors have f0und something that could help many to get out of sight forever.
Lateralism happens when the lens in the eye becomes overturned and unable to focus properly. One patient noticed the first symptoms when he could no longer bond the navy node. "I just did not see the end of the rope anymore," former sailor Rick Timmerman said. Doctors hope that they will be able to restore sharp vision to the near-proximity of a tiny litter. In a ten-hour operation, a laser surgeon makes a cut in the cornea. While the LASIK operation brings back vision to the patients, this procedure cures close vision. The podium blocks the uncategorized light, and the small aperture allows focus-focused entry, which improves vision and brings sharpness in the eye of closely related subjects. "This is the first time that people are able to see sharply and remotely and close to the same eye," says Thomas S. Tooma, director of the TLC Laser Eye Center in Newport Beach, California. In one European study, 80 percent of patients had diopters reduced to zero after one year. Timmerman is one of the first users of the new technique and is pleased with the results. "I personally helped my friend set a cl0set, searched for a sealed screw, and did not see it even though he was wearing glasses," he says. The AcuF0cus cornea is currently undergoing clinical trials on 45 to 60 year-olds suffering from fever and the lens should be on the market for up to two years.
