Clinical studies show that 97% of all patients who received trifocal/multifocal lens exchange surgery on both eyes never need glasses again: reading, shopping, PC work, driving a car, shaving and make-up application are finally possible again without glasses.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and usually takes 15 minutes per eye. Before the procedure, the eye is anesthetized with drops so that the patient does not feel any pain during refractive lens exchange. The eye is opened with a tiny corneal incision, which heals seamlessly.
1. Preparation of the Eye
The anterior lens envelope is opened in a circular fashion. Then the lens core is removed. The rest of the lens envelope remains and serves as a ‘holding apparatus’ for the new lens.
2. Removal of the Lens
Each patient receives a trifocal/multifocal lens that is ideally adapted to his or her individual needs. This well-tolerated artificial lens can remain permanently in the eye and is not visible.
