Trifocal Lenses are the latest technical achievement in the field of artificial eye lens transplantation.
In contrast to their predecessors; monofocal (single focus) and multifocal (two focus) lenses; the trifocal (three focus) lenses are able to establish the vision for all three levels of vision: far, middle and the close view. However, both eyes need to be operated for the lenses to work properly.
At TALYA MEDICAL CENTER, we have successfully performed numerous cataract operations using monofocal lenses every week since its foundation, and with the developement of lens technology, we have been successfully performing trifocal lens transplantation for domestic and especially foreign patients since years.
Based on the cataract surgery method, in which; with the method to be explained later; the anterior sheath of the nucleus and the nucleus of the ophthalmic lens is removed and an artificial lens is inserted.
Before the Surgery, an extensive eye check-up is carried out, to which a biometric measurement is added. With this measurement, the values of the lenses to be used are calculated using numerous algorithms.
Although if this is a outpatient surgery method, there are risks for which reason both eyes will not be operated at once by our doctor. Between the surgeries should be at least 3, optimally 4 days.
Risks & Disadvantages:
You will be able to see much more clearly the day after the surgery, even if the pupils may not be back to their original state. Even if the incisions are tight without sutures immediately after surgery, you should avoid physical work/effort for two to three weeks. After eight weeks, the artificial lens has solidified in the eye.
For the first two to three weeks, the following is also prohibited:
Reading and observing is allowed, as well as lifting up to five kilograms. Usage of medicaments should continue as prescribed. The day after the operation, the operated eye must be examined by our eye doctor.
As a foreign patient, you should plan at least 7-9 work days starting with and for the preliminary examination, surgeries for both eyes and the necessary minimum numberof follow-up checks.
