MULTIFOCAL LENS IMPLANTATION

Starting at about age 45, almost everyone experiences some blurriness with their close-up vision. This is caused by the aging process of the lens. It loses its elasticity and thus its ability to adjust to various distances (accommodation loss). This is why most people must wear reading glasses or magnifying glasses in order to compensate for eye lens aging.

There is a solution for those affected by presbyopia – implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens to replace your eye's own lens.

There is a solution for those affected by presbyopia – implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens to replace your eye's own lens. Thanks to their special surface design, such lenses enable very good functional, uncorrected sight across the entire field of vision. After the surgery, patients can generally see objects both near and far quite well and in most cases can do without corrective lenses or reduce their usage to a minimum during their everyday activities. Implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses also offers a solution for patients who are additionally nearsighted or farsighted because these lenses can correct both the existing defective vision as well as presbyopia.

 

THE SURGERY

During implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens, the eye's natural lens is removed by means of a miniscule incision at the edge of the cornea and an artificial intraocular lens is implanted. The artificial lenses are compressed and shaped so that they unfold in the eye's capsular sack and take on the position of the original, natural lens. The operated eye will be covered with a bandage, which can be removed the next day. The incision is so small that suturing is usually not necessary, as it will close up by itself. The entire procedure typically does not last longer than 20 minutes. The second eye is operated a few days after the first, so that the procedures generally takes place about two to seven days apart.

AFTER THE SURGERY

As a rule, you will be able to resume your regular activities the day after surgery, although you should do everything in moderation. You should avoid strenuous activities in any case. You should rest your eyes. During the first 24 hours after the procedure your eye will recuperate quite a bit and your vision will gradually improve. However, it can take several weeks before optimal and stable vision has been achieved. We give all our patients precise instructions about what they should do after surgery and inform them about any limitations they must take into account.
