One of our patients recently asked us, “Can you get LASIK if you wear bifocals?” It’s an interesting question. Many people must wear bifocals to help correct deteriorating vision brought on by aging. These bifocals help correct a condition called presbyopia (meaning “old eye” in Greek) that causes blurred close-range vision, especially within low light. With the onset of presbyopia, even those who have never before needed glasses may find themselves in need of bifocals—a frustrating occurrence at best.
