Multifocal and Other Premium Implants
“I threaded a needle without glasses”
“I can see the grass grow now”
Multifocal Implants have the ability to split the light that enters your eye into two images. This allows you to focus far away as well as close up. Newer implants such as the ReSTOR, the ReZoom and Lentis Mplus are designed to correct near vision like a bifocal or Varifocal lens in your glasses. Other implants such as the Tecnis implant are designed to correct the distortions in your vision to improve the quality of your vision. Numerous clinics offer these lenses but give the standard procedure their own proprietary names such as Clarivu, etc. We are not tied to any such lens manufacturer or technique. Each lens has its advantages and disadvantages.
The consultant will discuss these with you in detail, the choice of lens used and the technique which will be most appropriate for your needs during consultation.
Add on Lenses
If you have undergone cataract surgery or lens exchange but have not achieved the desired visual outcome or if you want to be able to read close up without glasses there is now a solution to ‘fine tune’ your result. You may have undergone the implant surgery recently or years ago.
Special intra-ocular lenses designed for implantation on top of the previously placed lens are available, so called ‘Add-On’ lenses are available. This allows your vision to be fine tuned at a secondary procedure and is a safe and highly effective way to give you reading vision.
Piggy Back Lens Exchange
Viewpoint Vision was among the first centre in UK to offer this ground breaking treatment. Piggy Back Lens Exchange is an extremely delicate procedure requiring exceptional surgical skills. We have carried out many successful piggy back Lens implants treatment since 1996.
Piggy back lens Implant treatment is used for complex prescriptions where a single implant is not enough to correct vision. A combination of two implants, custom made for your prescription is implanted within the eye – one inside the human lens capsule and one in front of it. This is similar to the principles described above for Add-on Lenses but here the procedure is done in one go.
