Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics), announced that he has performed the state’s first (and one of the country’s first) newly FDA-approved procedure to treat presbyopia – 3D Laser Kamra procedure, at Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center, Nashville, TN.

Presbyopia is the loss of the ability to change the focusing power of the eye. It occurs with normal aging and results in difficulty with near vision, generally in adults 40 to 50 years of age and older.

Up until now, no effective surgical treatment exists to treat presbyopia other than invasive lens surgery. LASIK surgery is generally reserved to improve one’s distance but not up-close vision due to aging.

Recently, U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the first-of-its kind new eye surgery to treat presbyopia. “The procedure is called ‘3D Laser Kamra’ at Wang Vision”, Dr. Wang explained, “It involves implanting a ring into the cornea to produce a pinhole effect, which enable us to improve our near vision without compromising our distance vision”.

Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center has been the site in recently years of introduction of new eye surgeries. Dr. Wang performed the state’s first bladeless all-laser LASIK and the first laser cataract surgery.

“We are excited to be the first again, and this time, to introduce this entirely new generation eye surgery to treat aging eyes!” Dr. Wang said: “The focus of 21st century medicine now is to improve our sight even as we age, to enable our patients see better and longer. It improves the quality of lives for our patients”.
