Through their eyes – Presbyopia

With the number of presbyopic patients growing, coupled with their desire to live more active lifestyles, providing them with appropriate correction options is growing even more important. In this discussion workshop, we will explore the experience that two real patients had when they went for their first sight test having become presbyopic. Reflecting on their experiences, together, we will consider how we can ensure we always provide our patients with clear, personalised recommendations.
