TRIFOCAL/MULTIFOCAL LENSES: NEVER AGAIN READING AND PROGRESSIVE 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 impairement in the close range. From a certain point in time, usually between the age of 40 and 50, everyone depends on reading glasses. Even those who have never had to deal with this topic before.

The use of trifocal/multifocal lenses 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.

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.

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.

THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES AND ADVANTAGES OF THE TRIFOCAL AND MULTIFOCAL LENSES

  • Painless, outpatient procedure
  • Restoration of the natural visual range
  • Lifelong freedom from glasses
  • Vision remains constant and no longer changes
  • Well-tolerated trifocal/multifocal lens can remain permanently in the eye
  • The lenses are not visible
  • Prevention of cataracts

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.

The trifocal and multifocal lenses used by EuroEyes are premium lenses that meet the highest quality standards:

  • high optical quality
  • less scattered light phenomena
  • fewer glare effects
  • better contrast vision under reduced light conditions (e.g. twilight and at night)

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.

Trifocal and multifocal lens

All patients receive a custom-made artificial trifocal/multifocal lens, manufactured especially for their eye. 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).

Whether presbyopia or cataractnearsightednessfarsightedness 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 trifocal/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.
