The need for a monofocal lens can also be determined at a subspecialist examination.
The subspecialty examination is a detailed examination and consists of anterior segment examination, as well as diopter determination (new diopter, diopter change, hidden diopter examination) and examination of the posterior segment of the eye (fundus and optic nerve).
If necessary, additional diagnostics such as OCT are performed.
OCT is an Optical Coherence Tomography – it examines the structure of the macula and the optic nerve to find out if there are any defects in that structure that are invisible when viewed with a magnifying glass. In people over 60 years of age with diopters, this diagnosis is made due to the possibility of macular degeneration.
If you are diagnosed with cataract, you should schedule a examination for cataract.
If you are interested in multifocal lenses that allow vision at all distances (near, far and middle), you should schedule an examination for multifocal lenses.
The examination is performed by a team of an ophthalmologist, optometrist and nurse. The team is trained to make: an appropriate detailed examination of the eye, appropriate measurements of the intraocular lens and all diagnostic tests needed to detect the presence of a hidden eye disease, which could affect the quality of vision in the future.
Accurate measurement and calculation of diopters of intraocular lenses is very important for acute postoperative vision, which is why we use the most modern computer device “IOL Master”.
