Trifocal Intraoculer Lenses (Smart Lenses)

Trifocal lenses, which have been freauently mentioned recently, provide comfort to patients with visual distress. For about 10 years, lenses preferred for suitable patients in cataract surgeries provide solutions to vision problems.

Smart lenses are effective enough to solve the vision problems of patients. However, no artificial : material can replace its reality. The aim here is to increase the patients visual quality as much as possible by applying an artiticial lens instead of the lens that is congenital and has fost its function. Smart lenses are used for patients who have cataract disease in their eyes and therefore need surgery. Fort his, suitable patients should be preferred and smart lens surgery should not be considered as a simple procedure.

Proper patient selection is important:

Smart lenses can be applied to patients with cataract disease or very high hyperopia numbers. However, it is not right to be preferred for patients with retina, diabetes, AMD, advanced astigmatism and advanced myopia disease, strabismus, kerotoconus and corneal problems. These trifocal lenses placed in the eye provide correction in far, near and middle vision distance. One of the appropriate lenses is preferred according to the patients condition. In order to use smart lenses, the patient must first undergo standart cataract surgery and the patients cristalin lens should be removed and the appropriate lens shoul be replaced. The operaion takes 10-15 minutes like standart cataract surgery. During this operation, no stitches are applied to the eye and the patients are discharged on the same day.

Although patients who wear monofocal lenses do not need glasses for distance after surgery, they may be required to wear glasses for near. Patients with trifocal lenses can read without glasses, use a computer and watch television after surgery. Thus the quality of life of the patient increases. Trifocal lenses should be recommeded primarily to suitable patients and unnecessary surgery risk should be eliminated.
