Premium trifocal lens for presbyopia

corrects distance, intermediate and near vision   

SK_3582

Trifocal intraocular lenses are a type of intraocular lens used in cataract surgery and lens exchange surgery, designed to correct distance, intermediate and near vision. They can be associated with predictable glare and haloes in certain light conditions eg night-time driving.

Trifocal intraocular lenses should be avoided in certain occupations, leisure activities and eye conditions. Lifestyle factors should be discussed when planning surgery. You may require glasses post-operatively for very small print.

A trifocal lens implant is not covered by insurance companies and if you are a self-funding client this is an additional cost to your surgery.

Standard monofocal lens for blended monovision

improves distance & some near vision

Monofocal- means correcting for one focal point eg distance vision

Blended monovision- means correcting one eye for distance vision and the other eye for near vision.

A monofocal lens is the most widely used type of intraocular lens worldwide in cataract surgery and lens exchange surgery.

Blended monovision using monofocal lenses results in improved distance vision in one eye and improved near vision in the other eye. The two eyes are still able to work together and your brain is able to fuse the images from each eye.

You will be able to see distant images, recognise people's face approaching you and be able to read a menu, read headlines on a newspaper but may require glasses for reading very small print.

An experienced surgeon will ensure that you achieve the most predictable post-operative refractive outcome and that you maintain binocular vision.

Typically in monofocal intraocular lenses there are no side-effects such as glare or haloes. You may require glasses post-operatively.

A monofocal intraocular lens is covered by insurance companies. If you are a self-funding client this is included in the cost of your surgery.

Premium monofocal toric lens

corrects astigmatism and improves distance vision only

Monofocal- means correcting for one focal point eg distance vision

Toric- refers to a type of intraocular lens that is designed to correct corneal astigmatism

Astigmatism- refers to the shape of a healthy cornea being less like a football and more like a rugby ball.

A monofocal toric lens is a type of intraocular lens used in cataract surgery and lens exchange surgery in the presence of a healthy cornea with astigmatism. A toric lens requires exacting placement at the planned orientation to correct astigmatism.

Post-operatively you will notice improved distance vision and your near vision will be somewhat blurred and so you will require glasses for reading a book/newspaper/using your smartphone.

Typically with monofocal toric intraocular lenses there are no side-effects such as glare or haloes.

A monofocal toric intraocular lens is not covered by insurance companies. If you are a self-funding client this is an additional cost to your surgery.

Standard monofocal lens

improves distance vision only

Monofocal- means seeing at one focal point eg clear vision in the distance but not at near.

Emmetropia- means an object in the distance is seen in sharp focus.

A monofocal lens is the most widely used type of intraocular lens worldwide in cataract surgery and lens exchange surgery.

Post-operatively you will notice improved distance vision and your near vision will be somewhat blurred and so you will require glasses for reading a book/newspaper/using your smartphone.

Typically there are no side-effects such as glare or haloes associated with monofocal intraocular lenses.

A monofocal intraocular lens is covered by insurance companies. If you are a self-funding client this is included in the cost of your surgery.
