Sometimes the degree of ametropia or the nature of the cornea speaks against laser treatment. There is a very good alternative for these cases: Special artificial lens implants, also called intraocular lenses, fulfill the desire for a life without glasses.
If you are over the age of 45, you may find that reading the small print is difficult for you – especially in low light. In this case, you have the choice: Either you get reading glasses or varifocals or you have the cause of your ametropia eliminated with the implant of a multifocal PIOL or IOL – more about this on the following pages – and carry a largely glasses-free life from now on.
Intraocular lenses have proven their worth in treating cataracts. Over the decades, their visual abilities have been continuously improved, the correction of ametropia and presbyopia is now possible with a state-of-the-art lens implant. All of the artificial lenses implanted by us are extremely well tolerated and can remain in the eye permanently.
We have two different lens implantation procedures available for treatment.
Would you like to know which procedure is right for you? Here you can get an overview of the requirements for the respective implantation methods:
|Phakic intraocular lenses
|from -3 dpt||from +4 dpt||up to 7.5 dpt||yes|
|Refractive lens exchange
(RLA) Suitable from the age of 45
|The method can be used with any strength, also in connection with presbyopia.|
