Trifocal & Multifocal Lens Surgery

No more glasses!
Whether reading your smartphone or a newspaper: (remove in the meantime) if you have to read the text at an ever-increasing distance, then here is the vision impairment in the close range. Presbyopia onsets at around 45 years of age, when reading and viewing close objects becomes increasingly more difficult. Reading glasses are then needed to see clearly. People who already wear glasses for distance vision, then need a second pair; or progressive lenses.

We implant the latest generation of trifocal/multifocal lenses to give you clear near, middle and distance vision. This is a first-class method of correcting your presbyopia and enables you to live life long without glasses.

You can feel safe with us: LEC London as member of EuroEyes has performed the most trifocal lens implantations worldwide.
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.

Advantages of trifocal/multifocal lens surgery

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

Clinical studies show that 97% of all patients who received trifocal/multifocal lens exchange surgery on both eyes never need glasses again: reading, shopping, PC work, driving a car, shaving and make-up application are finally possible again without glasses.

Unique features of trifocal and multifocal lenses

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

  • high optical quality.
  • less scattered light phenomena.
  • less glare effects.
  • better contrast vision under reduced light conditions (e.g. twilight and at night).
4 Steps in a refractive Lens Exchange Procedure

The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and usually takes 15 minutes per eye. Before the procedure, the eye is anesthetized with drops so that the patient does not feel any pain during refractive lens exchange. The eye is opened with a tiny corneal incision, which heals seamlessly.

1. Preparation of the Eye

The anterior lens envelope is opened in a circular fashion. Then the lens core is removed. The rest of the lens envelope remains and serves as a ‘holding apparatus’ for the new lens.

2. Removal of the Lens

Each patient receives a trifocal/multifocal lens that is ideally adapted to his or her individual needs. This well-tolerated artificial lens can remain permanently in the eye and is not visible.
3. The Trifocal-/Multifocal Lens
The surgeon inserts the new lens into the eye with an injector. The lens unfolds and is properly placed in the empty lens envelope by the surgeon. The trifocal/multifocal lens corrects presbyopia in addition to other existing vision disorders (near-, farsightedness and astigmatism).
4. Implantation of the Trifocal-/Multifocal Lens
Treatment Steps
  • Measurement of all relevant eye parameters
  • Diagnosis whether you are suitable for cataract surgery
  • In-depth consultation
1. Consultation and aptitude Test
  • Intensive preliminary ophthalmological examination and measurement of your eyes
  • Detailed treatment explanation by a medical specialist
  • Duration of examination usually 2 hours
  • Before this appointment you are not allowed to wear soft contact lenses for one week and hard contact lenses for two weeks
  • You will receive an aftercare kit for the days following your treatment. The contents and medication will be explained to you in detail by our staff.
2. Preliminary medical Examination
  • Please bring someone to accompany you
  • We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing
  • Please refrain from wearing perfume and make-up on the day of your lens treatment
  • You can eat and drink regularly on the day of treatment, please do not smoke.
  • The total duration of this outpatient surgery is 10 – 15 minutes per eye.
  • The operated eye is protected by an eye bandage until the next day.
  • By the way: If it is about both eyes, we usually treat them on two consecutive days.
  • By the way: if both eyes are involved, we usually treat them on two consecutive days.
3. On the Day of your Treatment
  • Please do not rub your eyes
  • Apply eye drops several times a day as directed by a doctor
  • Use artificial tears as needed
  • Professional activity after 2-4 days
  • Sports activities possible after approx. 3 days, avoid swimming and sauna in the beginning
  • Controls are usually: after 1 day – 1 week – 1 month – 3 months
  • Driving a car is allowed again only after permission of the doctor
4. After your Lens Surgery
We use trifocal and multifocal lenses of the latest generation.
They have patented high-performance optics and open up the possibility for you to see everyday life clearly without any aid, providing high quality near, intermediate and distance vision.

The Trifocal Premium lenses are manufactured with computer-controlled diamond tools.
This means the highest possible precision and optical premium quality for you.

The optics of the lenses are manufactured using the patented SMP technology:
A special process reduces stray light phenomena, which always occur with trifocal/multifocal lenses, to an absolute minimum. The positive effect: less glare and fewer halos! Aspherical optics provide optimized image quality and improved contrast vision.

Lenses protect the sensitive retina and are optionally equipped with an extended light protection filter in addition to a UV filter.
This protective function is used in ophthalmology, especially for the prevention of macular degeneration (AMD). No matter whether presbyopia or cataract, whether nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, clinical studies show that 97% of people operated on no longer need glasses after implantation of trifocal and multifocal lenses.

The properties of the latest generation of lenses are outstanding and offer the highest quality
