Multifocal Lenses for Presbyopia Treatment

The implantation of Multifocal Intraocular Lenses is a superior method for the correction of presbyopia and allows for a life without glasses.

Information about multifocal lens

Presbyopia typically develops between the ages of 40 and 50: small print becomes increasingly hard to read, and you become dependent on reading glasses. Even if you have suffered from nearsightedness or farsightedness earlier in your life, you will eventually develop presbyopia, and will need bifocals or several glasses.

The implantation of the multifocal lens, also known as multifocal intraocular lens, is a safe, precise, and tested procedure for the correction of presbyopia. Basically, the natural lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial lens. This Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) is a proven procedure as it has been used for decades in cataract treatments.

The multifocal lens is a highly developed artificial lens with several focal points, and it thereby enables clear vision in various distances – without the need for glasses. This well tolerated lens can permanently stay in the eye and is not visible. EuroEyes has performed most intraocular lens implants in Germany and can prove many years of experience.

Multifocal Lens Treatment Steps

  Preparing the Eye This outpatient procedure typically lasts 10 minutes per eye. Eye drop anesthetics create a pain free procedure. The eye is opened with a key-hole incision in the corneal periphery that heals without a suture.  Removing the Lens The fibrous lens capsule behind the pupil is opened in a circular manner and the eys’s lens core is removed. The capsule then functions as supporting tissue for the implanted artificial lens. Each patient receives a custom-made artificial lens implant that has lifetime durability. Multifocal LensAll patients receive a custom-made artificial lens, manufactured especially for their eye. This well-tolerated artificial lens has lifelong durability and is not visible.  Implanting the Artificial Lens The surgeon inserts the injector holding the artificial lens through the key-hole incision into the eye. The lens unfolds and is positioned by the surgeon into the vacant lens capsule. The lens corrects presbyopia in addition to other existing vision disorders (near-, farsightedness and astigmatism).

Unique Features of the Multifocal Lens

  • “State of the art” technology to optimize your vision
  • Experienced high-volume German surgeons
  • Lifelong freedom from glasses and contact lenses
  • Functional vision at all distances
  • Prevention of cataracts
Clinical studies show that 90% of all patients who had multifocal lenses implanted in both eyes, no longer needs glasses: tasks like reading, shopping, computer work, driving, and even shaving and applying make-up are finally possible again without any glasses.   

Premium Lens Implants With the Highest Quality Standards

  • Excellent optical quality
  • Reduced light scatter
  • Reduced glare problems
  • Better contrast vision under poor lighting

Multifocal Treatment Procedure

1. MIOL Suitability Assessment

  • All relevant eye parameters are measured
  • Diagnosis of your suitability for the MIOL
  • Consultation on your optimal MIOL treatment

2. Pre-treatment Examination

  • A thorough preliminary medical examination is carried out
  • Our Ophthalmologist and specialist in refractive surgery explains all aspects of your treatment
  • Detailed measurements are performed
  • The examination lasts approx. 2 hours
  • Cease contact lens wear one week (soft lenses) or two weeks (hard lenses) beforehand
  • Your personal after-care set will be explained to you in detail

3. On the Day of Your Treatment

  • Bring someone to accompany you
  • Wear comfortable clothes
  • Remove any makeup and avoid wearing perfume
  • Eat a light meal beforehand
  • A mild tranquiliser will be offered to you
  • The total duration of this outpatient surgery will be 10 – 15 minutes per eye over 2 days (1 day per eye)

The Characteristics of the Latest Generation of Lenses are Excellent and Provide the Highest Quality

  • We only use the newest generation of multifocal lenses.They have a patented high performance optic and give you the ability to see both in the close, middle and distant range without needing glasses.
  • The premium multifocal lenses are made with computer-controlled diamond tools. For you, this means the highest possible precision and optical premium quality.
  • The optics of the lenses are manufactured using the patented SMP technology: Through a special process, glare phenomena, that normally always occur in multifocal lenses, will be reduced to an absolute minimum. The positive effect is less glare and less halos! Also the aspheric optics ensure an enhanced image quality and improved contrast sensitivity.
  • Lenses protect the sensitive retina and an extended light protection filter can be included in addition to a UV filter. In ophthalmology, this protection is applied particularly for the prevention of macular degeneration (AMD).
Whether presbyopia or cataract, nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, clinical studies show that 97% of the treated patient after implantation of multifocal lenses no longer need glasses.

Precision Thanks to Laser

To enable an even greater accuracy and perfection, EuroEyes uses the LenSx ® femtosecond laser for the surgical procedure, which takes several essential steps of the lens surgery that were previously performed manually by the surgeon. This laser eye treatment used for lens exchange, allows a painless and precise dissection of different layers of tissue in the eye. It thus offers two advantages over the manual technique: first of all, the lens exchange is precise because the multifocal lens can be positioned accurately, and second of all, safer because the laser incisions are more precise than hand-guided incisions. EuroEyes is one of the first LASIK clinical groups in Germany to apply the LenSx® in the field of laser lens exchange.

Frequently Asked Questions about Multifocal Lenses

Multifocal Intraocular lenses (M-IOL) enable, by distributing the incoming light in two foci, a sharp vision for reading and one for the distance. The area between near and far can thereby usually be managed in everyday life without the need for glasses.
For patients who have already reached presbyopia, which usually appears between the ages of 40 and 50. Suddenly, the arms are not long enough to hold a newspaper or a book far enough to make the letters appear clear – reading glasses become necessary. Even people who used to be nearsighted or farsighted when they were younger, will over the years also be affected by presbyopia.
Multifocal lenses can result in a slight loss of contrast. This often causes halos to appear around light sources. However, our brain learns to deal with such changes, and over time the affected patients will hardly notice them.
