    Presbyopia treatment aims to rejuvenate ‘lazy’ ciliary muscles

    By Cheryl Guttman Krader

    Las Vegas—Microelectrostimulation of the ciliary body is a promising non-invasive technique for restoring accommodative loss in eyes with early presbyopia, said Luca Gualdi, MD.

    The treatment involves delivery of electric impulses that cause rhythmic contraction of the pupillary muscles with alternating miosis and mydriasis. It is based on the concept that as presbyopia develops and people begin to use reading glasses, the ciliary muscle becomes “lazy” from lack of use, said Dr Gualdi at the 2015 meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
