The revolutionary laser assisted approach to lens surgery using the Femtosecond Laser, LenSx®, enables a blade-free implantation of artificial lenses (multifocal lenses) for the treatment of presbyopia or cataracts.
The new laser LenSx ® represents a paradigm shift in the surgical treatment of presbyopia and cataracts – the world’s most commonly performed surgery. The laser replaces several steps which were manually performed by the surgeon before. The LenSx femtosecond laser revolutionises this surgical method, which has remained unchanged for over 40 years. It combines several partial steps and makes the surgeon’s scalpel superfluous. This allows not only a painless procedure, but also a reduction of human mistakes to an absolute minimum. Patients benefit from an even greater accuracy, perfection and safety which cannot be reached on that high level by a hand-guided surgery.
EuroEyes has been one of the first clinical groups for lens surgery in Germany to apply the LenSx® in the field of laser lens exchange and reached fantastic results. Now we offer LensX at many EuroEyes locations.
All the necessary steps of a lens surgery, are now–with highest precision and safety–taken over by the LenSx®. An experienced surgeon plans and monitors every step of the femtosecond laser throughout the treatment.
The laser is accurately centered on the lens of the eye. All planned incisions are displayed to and supervised by the surgeon on the OCT monitor from various perspectives. OCT stands for Optical Coherence Tomography imaging and describes a method by which a high-resolution three-dimensional image of the entire anterior chamber of the eye is produced.
A molded contact glass is placed on the patient’s eye. The patient interface displays a representation of the OCT superimposed on an image of the patient’s eye, and together with synchronised video surveillance the laser performs several steps of the surgery.
After the LenSx Femtosecond Laser has made its incisions and softened the natural lens, the contact lens is removed, and the surgeon easily and safely removes the remnants of the lens with special surgical instrument. This procedure is called phacoemulsification. During laser assisted lens exchange, the energy required to remove the lens is 40% less than with traditional cataract surgery.
Finally, the surgeon inserts the folded artificial lens (multifocal lens) into the now empty capsular bag and centers it to achieve an optimal visual impression after the surgery.
The treatment with the LenSx® in EuroEyes offers three distinct advantages:
The LenSx® reduces the loss of tissue during surgery. In addition, 40 percent less ultrasonic energy is required to remove the natural lens. This technology is significantly less invasive and and is thereby safer than conventional methods of refractive laser surgery.
The LenSx® ensures significantly more precision in lens surgery. The analysis system, OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography), allows a highly accurate computer-based control of the entire operation and a more accurate placement of the artificial lens for better vision. Existing astigmatism can also be treated with the LenSx®. The computer can plan the placement of incisions to compensate for, and thus minimize, astigmatism.
When using the LenSx®, treatments virtually happen 100% like the surgeon had planned with the OCT. The result is a highly optimized approach to the treatment of existing vision disorders, or cataracts with the use of multifocal lenses in the laser-lens surgery.
The use of the new laser LenSx® represents a paradigm shift in the surgical treatment of cataracts, the world’s most commonly performed surgery.
Additionally, this represents a significant innovation for the 33 million Germans over 50 that suffer from presbyopia.
This quantum leap in the field of ophthalmology allows us to offer you an even better, more accurate, safer and gentler treatment. You will benefit from this technology in line with our philosophy: not only correcting your vision, but also continually improving the quality of the treatment and the quality of your vision.
Consistent with our innovative and leading position in the field of eye surgery, EuroEyes is one of the first clinical groups in Germany to use the Femtosecond Laser LenSx®, and this is since November 2011.
Developed by the U.S. laser manufacturer Alcon, the LensSx Femtosecond Laser enables very precise, tissue-saving procedures on the eye – and thus makes it possible to perform a virtually complication-free cataract and presbyopia treatment.
Because of these positive features, the femtosecond laser has been established for many years in the treatment of refractive errors in the eye laser surgery – and is the standard treatment with EuroEyes.

Your recommended treatment:
ReLEx smile technology is a gentle form of laser vision correction that allows you to correct myopia. Therefore, corneal curvature is easily treatable with this method. During the procedure ReLEx smile the cornea opens with a small incision of 2 mm. A 3D disk (lenticular) that was previously prepared using a femtosecond laser is extracted through this “keyhole”.
This lenticule corresponds exactly to the weight and size of the corrected ametropia. The whole procedure takes about 32 seconds per eye. (For people aged 45-64: Femto-LASIK is medically possible, but we recommend using trifocal / multifocal lenses to prevent cataracts.) The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
For more than 20 years, implantable contact lenses made from Collamer® (abbreviated as ICL) have been the best solution for patients with severe ametropia or a damaged cornea. Unlike contact lenses, ICL remains permanently in the eye. These lenses are inserted between the iris and the own lens of the eye. The ICL in combination with the natural lens ensures that the light is correctly focused on the retina and that the patient can see again clearly without glasses. You are in good hands with us: EuroEyes has implanted the largest number of ICL contact lenses throughout Europe. The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
Femto-LASIK is one of the most reliable methods for correcting visual defects (enter the appropriate type of ametropia depending on the test result). To correct the refraction error using the Femto-LASIK procedure, a small round cap is separated on the cornea. During the Femto-LASIK procedure, the preparation of a corneal flap, also known as a flap, is performed using a femtosecond laser. The whole procedure is carried out without the use of mechanical cutting tools. The laser performs individual correction of ametropia and simulates the shape of the cornea. Then the flap is fixed in its original place. It adheres to the surface of the eye due to the strength of adhesion and protects the eye as an internal adhesive. (For people aged 45-64: Femto-LASIK is medically possible, but we recommend using trifocal / multifocal lenses to prevent cataracts.) The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
Using trifocal / multifocal intraocular lenses, also known as artificial lenses, is a safe and accurate method for correcting presbyopia (enter the appropriate type of ametropia depending on the test result). The natural, more non-functioning lens of the eye, is replaced by an artificial lens (multifocal lens). The advanced artificial lens has several focal points, which allows you to see at different distances without glasses. These very well tolerated lenses can remain in the eye throughout the life of a person and not be visible. The refractive lens replacement procedure (lensectomy) is a tested and proven method. This method has been used for the treatment of cataracts for decades and is the most frequently performed type of surgery in the world. EuroEyes clinics performed the largest number of implantations of multifocal lenses worldwide. The result of this test is not a mandatory recommendation. During a personal detailed consultation and after a thorough preliminary examination, your doctor will determine the procedure that is most suitable for you.
