Multifocal lenses: Intelligent artificial lenses for a life without reading glasses
Modern lens exchange for balancing presbyopia
When presbyopia advances and reading glasses become indispensable, so-called artificial lenses - multifocal lenses - are a modern alternative for a life without glasses
Lens exchange with multifocal lenses: The advantages at a glance
- Restoration of the natural range of vision
- Clear vision at close and far distance
- A lifetime without glasses
- Constant visual performance
- Prevention of cataract
- Out-patient surgery, approximately 10 min per eye
- Proven surgical technique
ICL: Implantable contact lenses
The alternative to eye laser. Reversible and for highly defective vision.
The ICL is a kind of contact lens that is introduced into the eye thus allowing the correction of highly defective vision – it is considered a safe and gentle alternative to the eye laser correction.
The advantages of implantable contact lenses at a glance
- Possibility of treatment of advanced defective vision
- Minimal-invasive –maintains corneal stability and lacrimation
- Reversible – the lens can be removed anytime
- An alternative to eye laser treatment
- Comfortable and fast
- Quick recovery
- Also for patients with dry eyes or thin cornea
- Biocompatible or highly compatible material of natural collamer (collagen and polymer)
RLE: Refractive lens exchange
Lens implantation with highly defective vision
With refractive lens exchange the endogenous lens is replaced with an artificial lens. This kind of lens surgery allows the precise correction of highly defected vision. Especially for patients with a high far-sightedness, a life without glasses can be made possible.
Characteristics of refractive lens
- the possibility to treat higher levels of short- and far-sightedness.
- a routine surgery applied in Germany alone approximately 700.000 times a year
- uncomplicated and soft
- modern and high-quality lens models - tailor-made for the each patient
- after surgery, visual capacity remains constant
- prevention of cataract
