Multifocal Lens Surgery (Trifocal Implants)

 

Dr. Zoran Aleksic performs Multifocal/Trifocal Lens implants in Cape Town, South Africa.

Multifocal (Trifocal) Lens surgery or Clear Lens Extraction is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and then replace it with an artificial lens to improve vision. This procedure is similar to Cataract surgery (remove your lens and replace it with an artificial lens). Trifocal lenses are the most advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs) available today, providing clear vision for close, intermediate and far distances, without gaps in between. They are designed to enable a high degree of independence from glasses for patients leading an active life and wishing to do without visual aids.

HOW DO TRIFOCAL (MULTIFOCAL) LENSES WORK?

Trifocal lenses work by bending the light entering the eye from near, intermediate and far distances, and focusing this light onto a single focal point on your retina...

Trifocal lenses work by bending the light entering the eye from near, intermediate and far distances, and focusing this light onto a single focal point on your retina.

 

This enables you to focus on objects at different distances simultaneously, providing near, intermediate and distant vision through one lens. These modern IOL types reduce, or may eliminate, the need for glasses or contact lenses. Just like prescription glasses, your IOL will also be adjusted to your individual needs to give you the best vision possible.

As a result, you may no longer need to wear glasses when pursuing your daily activities.

Trifocal IOLs allow for the treatment of pre-existing vision disorders, such as myopia or hyperopia. With a toric version of the trifocal lens, pre-existing astigmatism can be corrected as well.

Trifocal intraocular lenses are also effective for treating age-related vision changes such as presbyopia, which affects nearly everyone after the age of 40. 

In short, ideal candidates for trifocal lenses are patients who would like to be completely independent from glasses or contact lenses.
