About LBV traitment 

LBV (Laser Blended Vision) is a surgical procedure that involves applying the principle of monovision (correcting the two eyes differently by improving primarily long-distance vision in one eye and near vision in the other) in combination with creating a specific corneal profile in order to increase depth of field and improve mid-field vision.

This shared field of view allows the eyes to overlay the two sets of information which, once merged, create a new, clearer image of both close-up and distant objects.

The procedure is intended for individuals suffering from presbyopia, and can be combined with treatment of other refractive errors (hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism).

Vos questions sur le traitement LBV

Can my presbyopia and myopia be corrected at the same time?

Yes, it is possible to treat myopia at the same time as presbyopia. Presbyopia can also be treated at the same time as other refractive errors (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism).

What is the objective of LBV treatment?

The objective of LBV treatment is to allow you to see without glasses, both long-distance and close-up.

The SMILE technique can be used to correct myopia and astigmatism at the same time, whilst leaving the surface of the cornea essentially intact.

The femto-LASIK technique combines femtosecond laser and excimer laser treatment in order to remodel the cornea.


The PRK technique enables refractive treatment to be performed on the surface of the corneal stroma after removal of the superficial corneal epithelium.


The ICL technique involves implanting an intra-ocular lens inside the eye, behind the iris and just in front of the lens.
