When presbyopia sets in the early 40s, anyone with great distance vision begins to have difficulty with close up vision, like reading. For those patients that have had laser eye surgery or laser vision correction, they will need reading glasses just like any patient with great distance vision who has not had lasik. Patients that are nearsighted, can read with glasses off, but will need bifocals to keep their glasses on in this situation.

Typically, those patients that have bladeless custom lasik or ilasik under age 45 are able to see great in the distance and can see close up as well as have good intermediate vision.
