Presbyopia is a physiologic inevitability that causes gradual reduction in the amplitude of accommodation affects individuals older than 40 years and is a growing cause of visual disability due to aging demographic of the global population. The correction of presbyopia and the restoration of accommodation received huge interest in recent years and are considered the final frontier of refractive surgery. Different approaches on the cornea, the crystalline lens and the sclera are being pursued to achieve surgical correction of this disability. However the surgical correction of presbyopia still remains a significant challenge for refractive surgeons.
