Lens surgery is one of the most common surgical procedures in Germany. But for whom is lens surgery the right option? What different methods of lens surgery are there and what are the costs? All questions about lens surgery will be answered below.

In the case of lens surgery, a distinction is made in principle between two methods: either the natural endogenous lens is replaced by an artificial lens (multifocal lens) or, in addition to the natural lens, an artificial lens is inserted into the eye (ICL phakic contact lens).

The use of trifocal/multifocal lenses is a first-class and precise method of correcting presbyopia. Refractive lens replacement (RLE) has been used for decades as a cataract treatment, the world’s most common surgery.

Lens implantation of an ICL phakic lens is the solution for patients with a high degree of ametropia. As a rule, patients with extreme nearsightedness or long-sightedness or a cornea that is too thin are not suitable for an eye laser treatment, which is why EuroEyes offers a convincing alternative with the ICL phakic lens. Do you suffer from keratoconus and are you looking for a long-term solution to your problem? With a Keraring implant we can often treat the clinical picture in very pronounced stages. The aptitude check and a comprehensive examination by the eye surgeon decide which method is the most compatible for the patient.

Trifocal / Multifocal Lenses: say goodbye to your reading glasses or varifocals

You are reading the newspaper in the morning and your arms extend further and further away from you as you squint, to try and make out what the article in the paper reads.

If this sounds like you, then maybe you are affected by presbyopia. Presbyopia (also called ageing eye condition) usually manifests itself between the age of 40 to 50.

Even if you were previously short or farsighted, you will also be affected by presbyopia. In addition to your glasses or your contact lenses, you will need varifocals- very impractical in everyday life.

Today, presbyopia can be corrected with the help of trifocal/ multifocal lenses.

The trifocal/ multifocal lens is an artificial lens that has multiple focal points, allowing you to see at different distances. The artificial lens is implanted into the eye permanently and is invisible. In addition to presbyopia, the trifocal / multifocal lenses can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, cataract and astigmatism. You have come to the right place: EuroEyes has carried out the most implantations of trifocal lenses worldwide. You can find additional information about trifocal/ multifocal lenses here.

LenSx - more than just a laser

Presbyopia and cataract can be treated with a lens exchange. For over 40 years the procedure of natural lens exchange to an artificial lens was performed manually by surgeon. The LenSx femtosecond laser revolutionises this surgical method.

The LenSx treatment is a complete robotized procedure for lens replacement. The LenSx femtosecond laser combines several partial steps at the same time, thus making the scalpel superfluous. The LenSx thus enables a tissue-friendly, high-precision operation on the eye, offers more safety for the patient and works as precisely as is hardly possible by hand.

EuroEyes was one of the first clinic groups in Germany to implement the use of LenSx laser in the field of laser-lens exchange in the field of laser-lens exchange.

ICL / Phakic lenses: the invisible lens in the eye

ICL phakic lenses are implantable contact lenses, also known as implantable Collamer® lenses, which are often the solution for patients with very high shortsightedness or farsightedness or thin cornea.

The ICL phakic lens offers an excellent treatment alternative for myopia with more than -8 dpt and farsightednesswith more than +3 dpt – also in combination with astigmatism.

The ICL phakic lens remains permanently in the eye but can be replaced. The ICL phakic lens is placed between the iris and the body’s own lens.

With ICL, the eye can therefore continue to accommodate between near and far vision and focus on near and far vision – without the need for glasses.

We are leaders in this area: EuroEyes has performed the most of ICL phakic lens surgeries in Europe.
