Cataract, which is the inevitable end of aging, is the blurring of the eye lens. Cataract, which is called curtain in colloquial language, usually occurs with the effect of aging.
Patients with complaints such as gradual decrease in vision, sensitivity to light, glare, double vision, difficulty in reading, deterioration in night vision, fading or yellowing of colors, frequent changes in the number of glasses come to the hospital.
The only treatment method for cataracts that cannot be treated with the use of glasses or drugs can be achieved by removing the cloudy lens by surgery and placing a new lens in its place.
How is the lens to be used for surgery decided? Not all lenses used in cataract surgeries have the same properties. The artificial lens placed in the eye continues its existence in the eye throughout the person’s life. Since lens selection before surgery is a decision that will affect your whole life, it is a situation that you should make a decision by paying attention to your doctor’s advice.
We can divide the lenses used in cataract surgeries into three groups. With the monofocal lenses in the first group, which we call monofocal intraocular lens, the patient sees far, but he has to wear close glasses to see, for example, books, newspapers. Intraocular lenses in the second group are bifocal lenses with two focuses, near and far; the patient sees both the near and the distance without glasses, but the distance between 40 cm and 2 meters, which we call middle distance, cannot be seen clearly. Trifocal intraocular lenses, which we call Smart Lenses, have three focuses and are the lenses that solve this problem. When this lens is worn, the patient can see the distance, near and intermediate distance (distance between 40 cm and 2 meters) well without glasses
Trifocal intraocular lenses are lenses that have been developed to provide good vision in the middle distance while providing good distance and near vision. What we call middle distance; Vision is clear in three-focus lenses at distances where vision quality should be important, such as computer usage distance, television viewing distance, and access distance to the kitchen counter. The UV protection feature of the lens protects your eyes from the harmful effects of sun rays and prevents age-related diseases.
Smart Lenses are specially designed to make cataract surgery easier and shorter. The operation time is shorter than many lenses. You can return to your work life and start doing your social activities 1 day after the end of cataract surgery.
