Presbyond® Laser Blended Vision (LBV) method involves the non-linear aspheric ablation of the cornea with controlled induction of spherical aberrations in both eyes and the induction of micromonovision of -0.75 to -1.50 D in the non-dominant eye. The article presents the results of published studies analyzing the effect of laser correction of presbyopia using the Presbyond® LBV method on the stereopsis. The studies published so far indicate that the Presbyond® LBV treatment allows for maintaining functional postoperative stereoscopy, achieving patient satisfaction and independence from glasses.
