From Chu Vision Institute PA

Nowhere else in the field of opthalmology is there such a feeling of excitement as in the technology now available to help those who have presbyopia. Presbyopia - the loss of reading vision as the eye's ability to focus diminishes with age - starts to affect most people in their 40s. Until now, the solution to presbyopia has been reading glasses, and anyone who has had to rely on reading glasses to perform basic tasks knows what a tiresome practice it is to continually look for them, put them on and take them off. Today, Chu Vision Institute offers multiple surgical options for eliminating reading glasses.

"Presbyopia hinders some of the simplest everyday functions, such as reading a computer screen, using a cell phone, or seeing the food on your plate. With new technology, we now have the potential to improve these functional deficits or eliminate the inconvenience of reading glasses," says Y. Ralph Chu, M.D., founder and medical director of Chu Vision Institute and Chu Surgery Center, based in Bloomington.

Chu Vision Institute is a state-of-the-art opthalmology practice dedicated to utilizing the most advanced technologies and treatments to improve quality of life for patients. With both an on-site laser suite as well as an ambulatory surgery center, Dr. Chu, a highly skilled corneal specialist, performs corneal and refractive surgery and LASAC™, Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery. Consultations and procedures are done at a single location, delivering ultimate convenience for patients.

"Individuals do not need to accept declining vision as a natural part of aging," states Dr. Chu. "Not only is a better visual outcome available with today's technological advancements, but eliminating dependence on distance and reading glasses is obtainable."

Chu Vision Institute offers an array of procedures from which to choose, each one tailored to the specific requirements of an individual patient and their lifestyle - to reduce or eliminate dependency on prescription lenses.
