Treatment of Presbyopia at the clinic of Dr. Donate in Lyon


Come to our clinic to benefit from highly specialized techniques that both anticipate and correct your presbyopia in a complete and lasting way. These treatments are the culmination of the numerous studies that we have been conducting for over 20 years with peers in France and abroad.
We can treat your presbyopia regardless of its severity as, unlike other visual defects, presbyopia reaches the same degree for all individuals. We therefore have the ability to anticipate the right level of care to treat your presbyopia. The result of the operation is lasting; no further operations are necessary.


Presbyopia is a disorder of the vision and is a normal aging process of the eye. The eye has difficulty focusing on reading or performing close-up work. Presbyopia stems from a gradual thickening and loss of flexibility of the natural lens inside your eye. It also grows, which decreases the contraction and relaxation of the muscles involved. This phenomenon generally affects people over 45 years of age. It occurs in addition to other pre-existing visual disorders: myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.

Several methods can correct presbyopia along with other visual defects in a single procedure. For example :

  • Presbyopia alone
  • Presbyopia + Myopia (including very severe cases)
  • presbytie + myopie + astigmatisme (même très fort)
  • Presbyopia + Astigmatism
  • Presbyopia + Hyperopia
  • Presbyopia + Hyperopia + Astigmatism

During your consultation, we will evaluate the best solution for you and guide you through the process.

Presbyopia LASER correction

Depending on the results of our consultation, we may propose treating your presbyopia with PRESBYOND.
PRESBYOND is the latest generation of presbyopia-treatment software, linked to the Excimer Mel 90 laser and the Zeiss CRS-Master station. It allows us to control the post-operative optical aberrations necessary to increase the depth of field, according to your age, pre-operative ametropia (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism) and pre-operative optical aberrations.
This method is renowned for its very low risk of post-operative complications. The PRESBYOND does not lead to a reduction in distance vision and preserves your visual quality at night.

These laser treatments are made using the ALL-LASER LASIK technique. This method combines the use of two lasers whose precision and safety are unanimously recognized:

  • The Femtoseconde Visumax Laser
  • The Excimer Mel 90 ZEISS Laser

Please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be delighted to answer all of your questions.

Presbyopia correction with intraocular lens placement

Depending on the results of our consultation, we may also suggest treating your presbyopia with PRELEX. The name comes from presbyopic lens exchange, which means that your natural lens is removed and replaced with a multi-focal lens, correcting all optical faults.
This treatment is definitive! It has been in existence for over 20 years and performs as well as those practiced by laser centers, with more durable results in some cases. The aim of the procedure is to recover the close-range view while maintaining or correcting long-distance vision. Thanks to the PRELEX treatment, you can drive, do the gardening, read or play sports freely.
