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
leave the Vista Alpina Eye center as early as 1/2 an hour later without an eye bandage.
return to work after one to three days.
already resume driving the next day, after a check-up with your ophthalmologist.

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

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.
