In patients still requiring distance glasses after implanting an artificial lens, e.g. after cataract surgery, the remaining defective vision can be corrected by inserting a second lens ("add-on" lens).


This can be accomplished with a multi-focal add-on lens. The procedure can be performed at any time and provides as a general rule the option of life without glasses even years after cataract surgery.

The procedure, performed under local anaesthesia using drops, is extremely gentle and quick ( time needed for the procedure: 5 - 10 min.) for the patient. The add-on lens is inserted in addition to the already implanted artificial lens - in the so-called sulcus (= behind the iris and in front of the capsular sack).


After the procedure, you can normally

  1. leave the Vista Alpina Eye center as early as 1/2 an hour later without an eye bandage.

  2. return to work after one to three days. 

  3. already resume driving the next day, after a check-up with your ophthalmologist.

Advantages of add-on lenses

  • Normally, near and distance vision without glasses

  • Also in combination with near-sightedness or far-sightedness as well as corneal irregularity

  • Gentle, quick procedure

  • Suitable for any age

  • The lens strength is easy to calculate. No special measurement procedures required. This makes for excellent predictability.

  • The implant can be removed at any time

Please take into consideration that this pocedure is nevertheless an intervention at an healthy eye. We are glad to inform you about possible dis-/advantages.

Costs of add-on lens surgery!

You can live normally without glasses starting at CHF 3,450.- (depending on the lens strength) per eye (incl. surgery and lens)!
