Is there a single lasik procedure that can cure shortsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia?

I am more than 40 years old and I have myopia and astigmatism. I wear contact lenses currently. I am worried because I think I am surly going to need reading glasses soon as well because of presbyopia. So is there a single lasik procedure that can cure shortsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia? Or will I have to do more surgery in a few years times again? Please let me know, and what the risks are. Thanks.

    People above 40 years of age will naturally develop presbyopia, a common condition requiring Reading glasses to see near clearly. Currently there is no one single Lasik procedure which can effectively treat shortsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia. However one can opt for mono vision in Lasik where the myopia in one eye is fully corrected for distance vision while the other eye is corrected for good near vision by leaving some myopia behind. Mono vision is well established and effective to overcome the need to put on reading glasses and the majority of people tolerate it well.
