Surgical Reversal of Presbyopia (SRP) is a non-laser surgical procedure that treats a normal result of the aging process which reduces the ability of the older eye to focus at close range. Affecting almost 100 percent of those over the age of forty presbyopia has been traditionally treated with reading glasses. SRP is done by placing a number of small inert inserts into the sclera or white portion of the eye. After the application of topical anesthesia the surgeon uses a diamond knife guided by a computer to cut four small tunnels in a circular pattern around the sclera. The inserts are placed in the small tunnels. After the inserts are in place the outer portion of the eye is surgically stitched closed over the openings.
