Trifocal lenses – the solution for a comfortable life without reading glasses


Patients with presbyopia do not want to make any compromises and want to continue their active lifestyle. The simplest solution to be able to pursue everyday activities without glasses? Multifocal Lenses


Trifocal lens technology enables patients to enjoy unrestricted vision and a life without annoying glasses or contact lenses. Most patients suffering from presbyopia and cataract want to be able to move freely without having to worry about their visual aids. Daily activities such as working on computer, reading, cooking, driving a car, sports or watching television should be able to be carried out without further obstacles.

Trifocal lenses – smaller than an almond

Trifocal lenses are made of synthetic and biocompatible material. The soft material is not recognized as a foreign object by the human immune system and is therefore perceived as the body’s own. A regular lens measures approximately between 11 and 13 mm in diameter – a fraction of an almond. The thickness of the lens can vary, depending on its refractive power. The corrective power of the lens is individually calculated and may differ for each eye. The implanted lens cannot be felt in the eye and is not perceived any differently than the own natural lens.


In contrast to monofocal and bifocal lenses, trifocal lenses offer comfortable vision at all three distances – a serious advantage in everyday life. Whether at short, medium or long visual distances, patients no longer require additional visual aids.

Further advantages of Further advantages of trifocal lenses

  • Vision remains stable and clearly at all distances – you never have to wear glasses, contact lenses or progressive glasses again
