The surgical correction of presbyopia is gaining more and more popularity in the field of refractive surgery. Besides intraocular treatment with multifocal or accommodative intraocular lenses more and more corneal laser approaches are being established. These are performed either with the Excimer laser as laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) or the femtosecond laser. The femtosecond laser treatment is done purely intrastromally without dissection of the epithelium and is characterized by an extremely low risk of infection and inflammation. The procedure leads to a central corneal steepening with more prolate shape and increase in depth of field. This leads to a better uncorrected near visual acuity, however, corrected distance visual acuity might be reduced due to these changes.
