What does a lens implantation mean

Lens implantation is the surgical exchange of one's own lens with an artificial lens (IOL..Interocular lens) to remedy poor eyesight or an eye disease. The operation is painless and is performed with a local anesthetic (if desired also under general anesthesia). Operation time for each eye is approximately 10-15 minutes.

Which patients need a lens implantation

Cataracts patient.
Cataract is the clouding of the lens of the eye that occurs in most people after the age of 60. The most common cause of cataracts is a natural aging process and the increasing reduction in the supply of nutrients to the lens of the eye. As a result, the eye lens gradually loses its elasticity and becomes increasingly hard ... With an advanced cataract, those affected see everything around them as if through a veil of fog. About 25% of people over the age of 65 have cataract formation. There is no drug treatment for lens opacification. You have to exchange the clouded lens.

Presbyopia (presbyopia) patients.
Presbyopia is the effect of aging on your eyesight, and as you get older it is not uncommon for you to gradually find it difficult to focus your eyes on reading or close work ... This is a condition that can easily be corrected with reading glasses. But if the glasses no longer help, there is no drug treatment for presbyopia .. You can only treat this disease with a lens implantation. Replacing a natural lens with a clear lens will also stop the aging process. An implanted artificial lens retains its diopter power, its shape and its quality for a lifetime. The IOL lenses are also very well tolerated and can remain in the eye for life
