TRIFOCAL/MULTIFOCAL LENSES: NO MORE GLASSES, NO MORE READING GLASSES!
Whether reading your smartphone or a newspaper: in the meantime if you have to read the text at an ever-increasing distance, then here is the vision impairment in the close range. Presbyopia onsets around 45 years when reading and viewing close objects becomes increasingly more difficult. Reading glasses are then needed to see clearly. People who already wear glasses for distance vision, then need a second pair; or progressive lenses.
EuroEyes implants the latest generation trifocal/multifocal lenses to give you clear near, middle and distance vision. This is a first-class method of correcting your presbyopia and enables you to live a life long without glasses. You can feel safe with us: EuroEyes has performed most trifocal lens implantations worldwide. The blade-free implantation is also carried out with the help of LenSx – the most advanced technology on the market.
THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES AND ADVANTAGES OF THE TRIFOCAL AND MULTIFOCAL LENSES
Clinical studies show that 97% of all patients who received trifocal/multifocal lens exchange surgery on both eyes no longer need glasses ever after: reading, shopping, PC work, driving a car, also shaving and make-up application are finally possible again without glasses.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES ACCORDING TO THE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS
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.
Trifocal and multifocal lens
Each patient receives a custom-made artificial lens implant that has lifetime durability. This well-tolerated artificial lens has lifelong durability and is not visible.
Implanting the trifocal/multifocal 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 trifocal/multifocal lens corrects presbyopia in addition to other existing vision disorders (near-, farsightedness and astigmatism).
Trifocal/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
You will receive an aftercare set for the days after your treatment. Its content and medication will be explained to you in detail by our staff.
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
Please do not smoke
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 operated eye is protected until the next day by an eye bandage.
By the way: If both eyes are operated, we usually treat them on two consecutive days.
4. After your lens surgery
Please don’t rub your eyes.
Use eye drops several times a day according to doctor’s instructions.
Use artificial tears on demand
You can come back to work after 2-4 days
Sports activities possible after approx. 3 days, avoid swimming and sauna the first two weeks.
Controls follow up checks: 1 day – 1 week – 1 month -3 months after the surgery
Driving again only with the doctor’s permission.
The characteristics of the latest generation of lenses are excellent and provide the highest quality
We only use the newest generation of trifocal/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).

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT TRIFOCAL AND MULTIFOCAL LENSES
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 cataract treatment is the most commonly performed surgery in the world. You can therefore approach your treatment with a clear conscience.
WHAT IS A MULTIFOCAL LENS?
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. In addition to presbyopia the correction of myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism can be possible with artificial lenses.
You can feel safe with us: EuroEyes has performed the most intraocular lens implants in Germany and can prove many years of experience. Blade-free implantation is also performed using LenSx laser – the most advanced technology on the market.
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 trifocal/multifocal lens can be positioned accurately, and second of all, safer because the laser incisions are more precise than hand-guided incisions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MULTIFOCAL LENSES
Trifocal/multifocal Intraocular lenses (M-IOL) enable, by distributing the incoming light in three foci, a sharp vision for reading, intermediate distance and one for the far. 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.
Toric multifocal lenses can not only correct presbyopia, but also an existing astigmatism. In contrast to spherical lenses, which have a simple round curve, the shape of the toric lenses is more complex because a crooked cornea is not uniformly shaped. The irregularly shaped cornea causes blurred, distorted images and thus restricts vision. Thanks to the toric multifocal lenses, the blurred visual impression of the astigmatism and presbyopia can be corrected in one step. You can find out more about toric lenses here.
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.
The use of trifocal and multifocal lenses is a safe and precise method of correcting presbyopia. The body’s natural lens is replaced by an artificial lens. As a rule, the capsule of the natural lens remains in the eye as a storage location for the new artificial lens. This capsule can become cloudy months or even years after the lens has been replaced – secondary clouding (cataract) occurs. Vision is again slightly blurred and cloudy. The treatment of the cataract is possible with a short painless procedure. A short laser treatment is carried out with the help of a light and thus the cataract is eliminated. The success is quickly visible and gives you a clear view again.
