Multifocal lenses are the most modern ophthalmic solution and with them, the comfort of life is the best. The modern patient values his time more and more and makes an effort to find satisfaction in everything they do.
The day contains many activities – shaving or makeup, reading, sitting in front of a computer, watching TV or on the phone, driving a car, exercising – that we should do without much effort and enjoy them. They certainly depend most on our needs and lifestyle, requirements and expectations, but also on the functioning of our species, which the better our life is the more beautiful it is.
Someone does not see well up close, someone far away, someone at both distances at the same time. It certainly interferes with the performance of daily activities and therefore there is no need to wait and hesitate, the problem can be solved immediately with a permanent solution, which is state-of-the-art worldwide – implantation of multifocal intraocular lenses with which you will see flawlessly up close, far and medium distance and you will no longer need any eye aids.
In our series in which through the answers to 5 W – Who, What, When, Where, Why, we talk about the interventions in Sistina Ophthalmology, this time we will explain everything you need to know about the implantation of multifocal lenses.
Who can implant multifocal lenses?
All patients over the age of 40, who need three pairs of spectacles (near, far and medium), are ideal candidates for multifocal lens implantation.
What are multifocal lenses?
Multifocal lenses are the state-of-the-art ophthalmic solution for providing good vision at all three distances. Multifocal intraocular lenses have two or three foci, allowing the patient good vision at different distances without glasses.
The intervention for implantation of multifocal lenses is a short and painless surgery in which the natural lens is removed and replaced with a biocompatible and lifelong lens. The intervention is under local anesthesia and lasts about ten minutes.
After the intervention, the patient leaves home the same day with perfect vision. Their advantage over other eye aids is that they are a permanent solution and do not need to be hygienic or removed or put on. After implantation, you do not feel them and do not need to adjust them, they perform the function themselves and the vision is clearer and the colors are more vivid.
When is it best to do multifocal lens implantation?
After the age of 40, one enters a period of presbyopia or senile diopters. Then there is a problem reading or working nearby, more light is needed and you feel tired or have a headache.
The natural lens of the eye loses its elasticity and finds it harder to focus on nearby objects. The patient, if they wore glasses for far, now gets another pair, for close. If, on the other hand, they work on a computer and is at a medium distance, they will need a third pair of glasses because the close-up glasses become strong and the distance glasses are weak.
Then multifocal lenses are an ideal solution, because they can replace three pairs of glasses.
Why multifocal lenses?
The benefit is great, especially in terms of quality of life, because of the comfort that these lenses offer. The limitations that patients used to have with eye aids are no longer there. It gives them tremendous freedom and confidence in carrying out their daily activities whether it be work or leisure.
The latest generation of multifocal lenses are three-focal lenses, which provide perfect vision at all three distances. This is especially important for patients who work several hours a day on a computer.
