You’ve been diagnosed with cataract and now you are facing cataract surgery
During cataract surgery, the natural lens of your eye affected by cataract will be removed. After removal, an artificial lens will be implanted into your eye. This lens takes over the functions of your natural lens and you will see better again. Whether you will need glasses after surgery depends on the type of artificial lens that is implanted. There are two basic categories of artificial lenses: standard monofocal lenses and premium multifocal and toric lenses. Your ophthalmologist will help you decide on the best lens model, based on pre-op measurements and your personal vision objectives.
Lens Implantation in front of your natural eye lens
See well without glasses or contact lenses
A less commonly known yet effective method of vision correction is lens implantation, which allows you to see without the need for glasses or contact lenses. Lens implantation can correct both short-sightedness and long-sightedness. One major advantage of lens implantation is that the procedure is reversible (the lens can also be removed again). This is not the case with laser eye surgery, where a layer of your cornea is removed. And what’s gone cannot be put back. Another major advantage compared to laser eye treatment is that implant lenses can correct major deviations.
