Bifocal lenses are a very good solution for all those people who, after their cataract surgery, have the desire to see well far and at medium distances (e.g. PC and cooking), but are not bothered by reading glasses for activities in the near at approx. 35cm (e.g. reading a book, knitting)

The bifocal lens enables - after a successful cataract operation - despite shortsightedness / farsightedness, a sharp image for example when hiking and watching TV, but also when cooking, working on the PC and when driving.

The optic of the lens is cut with the so-called «EDOF technology», which means «Extended Depth of Focus» in English and «Extended depth of field» in German. The lens also contains a blue light filter.

In contrast to trifocal lenses, the bifocal lens has no disadvantages such as slightly reduced contrast vision and pools of light around light sources at night (so-called halo effect). However, it requires wearing reading glasses.

Apart from high astigmatism (over 1.5 diopters) there are hardly any contraindications for bifocal lenses. The lens is suited for nearly everyone.

In the case of bilateral surgery, in most patients one eye is targeted for very slight myopia to further promote visual acuity at the middle distance. Your Vista Alpina ophthalmologist will gladly discuss the best solution for you in detail during a personal consultation appointment.
