Multifocal and Other Premium Implants

“I threaded a needle without glasses”
“I can see the grass grow now”
These advanced Multifocal Implants provide both near and far vision like Bifocal glasses or contact lenses but unlike bifocal or varifocal glasses you see both near and far naturally and simultaneously.

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.

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.

 

 

I have worn reading glasses for years so I decided I would go for laser surgery. Read several negative reviews on high street stores and it appeared it was a case of do the procedure and that's it, no aftercare as such and not always good results. But then I came across Viewpoint. The reviews were good so I made an appointment. Although I initially thought I would be having laser surgery, Dr Chitkara recommended I had a Raindrop Implant. Although the thought of someone cutting my eye and inserting a lens, albeit tiny, terrified me I thought I would take the plunge and go for it! I can honestly say it was totally painless. Drops are administered in the eye and you cannot feel a thing. The procedure took about ten minutes and post-op Dr Chitkara suggested I take paracetamol if there was any discomfort - there wasn't. I have been for a check up every four weeks and everything is fine. I can now read without glasses unless it is very small, faint print. It can take six months to see the full benefit. I would definitely recommend Dr Chitkara and the Raindrop Implant, just wish I had had it done years ago! Beverley W –  Cheshire July 2016
Not the most pleasant surgery experience I’ve ever been subjected to but wow! What a great result! 34 years with spectacles and now 20-20 vision and given up smoking to boot! Well worth it!

My consultation was absolutely hospitable and enjoyable. I wish I knew this man before because I went elsewhere and did not receive adequate help even though I paid fees, causing me so much stress. The operation was easy, painless and all through the process DR Chitkara and staff were very friendly and reassuring. This has changed my life completely now my sight is restored. Dr Chitkara even phoned me after surgery at home to make sure I was doing well. I can’t say enough how I appreciate his service and kindness.
