As already mentioned under cataract surgery, an artificial lens replaces the patient’s (cloudy) eye lens. The artificial lens (intraocular lens) is implanted into the so-called capsular bag, where it remains normally for life.

 

You can choose from various intraocular lenses: Standard lenses (with or without blue light filter) or so-called refractive premium lenses: toric, bifocal or trifocal lenses.

 

The additional charge for these refractive premium lenses (CHF 600.- to CHF 2,600.-) is never covered by the respective health insurance and therefore, must be paid by the patient.

These premium refractive lenses are not suitable for all patients, and the ophthalmologist must carefully rule out potential contraindications when planning a cataract procedure. In addition to the usual exams before cataract surgery, additional and detailed measurements of the refractive power of the eye and the cornea are required.


The measurement data obtained are analyzed in extremely sophisticated calculation models in order to determine the best possible power of the lens. In addition, the operation must not only be performed perfectly, but additional surgical techniques are also used so that the Premium refractive lenses can have the best effect.


Your needs and expectations will be clarified during a consultation with your Vista Alpina ophthalmologist, and the best possible lens for the patient will be selected together.
