As agile partners to the eye care community, we see every day as an opportunity to disrupt conventional thinking in pursuit of vision without limitations.
We can’t wait to launch QLOSI™ in the first half of 2024 as we redefine possibilities for eye care providers and their presbyopic patients.
what is presbyopia
Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eye’s ability to focus on near objects. This progressive condition begins to affect most people sometime after the age of 40, than 128 million people1,2 in the US and 1.8 billion people3 worldwide. People with presbyopia experience blurred vision when performing daily tasks that require near visual acuity, such as reading a book, a restaurant menu or messages on a smartphone. Presbyopia occurs as a result of the natural aging process. As we age, the crystalline lens of the eye gradually stiffens and loses flexibility, resulting in the inability to focus on near objects.
