Presbyopia often occurs between the ages of 40 and 50: small sized text becomes increasingly dfficult to read. Thanks to state-of-the-art medical technology, we can offer you various solutions to free you from reading glasses.

Presbyopia can not be stopped by medicine or eye training. Thanks to modern medical technology we can offer you different ways to treat presbyopia to start a life without glasses. In a first examination and consultation we will inform you which method is best suitable for your eyes. For example the implantation of multifocal lenses can correct presbyopia and at the same time also other eye disorders like nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. With the innovative LenSx laser lens surgery, EuroEyes now offers even more safety.

After a Refractive Lens Exchange with the Multifocal lens, you will never suffer from Cataract
Near objects, such as text, cell phone screens but also computer screens appear increasingly blurred with age. This is usually compensated by holding the reading material or object in question further away and by using additional lighting. With the progression of presbyopia the problem increases and it eventually becomes impossible to compensate. If you have been suffering from nearsightedness or farsightedness in your younger years, presbyopia will still occur.
Presbyopia is the natural aging process and is therefore not a disease. The flexibility of the natural lens gradually decreases from birth. While we are still young, the lenses in our eyes are still extremely flexible. It ensures that incident light rays are focused in the middle of the retina to form a focal point (Figure 1). When focusing in the distance, the lens flattens, whereas it curves to focus up close (Figure 2 + 3). This adaptability of the lens is called accommodation. It allows us to easily fixate on both close and distant objects, and depict a sharp image on the retina.
With age the lens loses its elasticity by a gradual hardening process and becomes increasingly stiff. Objects in the distance can still be seen because the lens is flat in the initial position (Figure 4). This makes the lens loose its ability to adjust for a sharp vision on close objects. In this context we speak of a loss of accommodation in the lens. With the loss of accommodation the lens is no longer capable of sharply depicting images on the center of the retina. The focal point is relocated behind the retina (Figure 5 + 6). This leads to reading problems at first and to blurred vision at a later point in time, even when working on a computer.
Dysfunctional lens syndrome, DLS for short, is a frequent, progressive loss of function of the lens inside the eye. All people between the ages of 45 and 60 suffer from this age-related disease. DLS is characterized by the progressive loss of the natural flexibility and clarity of the lens.
The first stage is characterized by a loss of close-up vision. It often occurs from the age of 45. Those who affected begin to notice that their vision diminishes and letters blur in front of their eyes. Suddenly one is dependent on reading glasses.
The second stage occurs mainly in people between the ages of 50 and 60: near and far vision quality decreases.
The third stage of dysfunctional lens syndrome occurs in people over the age of 70 and is characterized by the appearance of cataracts. This is the opacity of the eye lens that leads to a loss of vision in some or all areas of the visual field.
By inserting trifocal and multifocal lenses, the dysfunctional lens syndrome can be corrected safely and precisely. The body’s own lens is replaced by an artificial lens (multifocal/trifocal lens). In addition to presbyopia, myopia, farsightedness and astigmatism can be corrected with artificial lenses. Due to the different focal points of the trifocal and multifocal lenses, vision at different distances is possible again without progressive vision glasses and reading glasses. Finally driving a car again, doing sports, reading and enjoying everyday life is possible – without glasses and annoying contact lenses.
Yes, the lens implantation procedure at EuroEyes is safe. The EuroEyes laser eye centres use the LenSx® femtosecond laser for surgical procedures at many locations. This eye laser, which is used for lens replacement, enables painless and very precise cutting of different tissue layers in the eye.
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.
