Monofocal and Toric lenses

Artificial intraocular lens (IOL)

During the course of a cataract surgery the surgeon replaces the natural intraocular lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). All the lenses we use are of good quality.

However, there are premium lenses that are better and have added functions:

aspheric lenses for crisper vision in dim light

toric lenses to correct for astigmatism

multifocal lenses and EDOF (Extended Depth Of Focus) lenses for all distances

Patients tell me that a new life begins for them after changing the lenses

Aspheric IOLs

The standard IOL has a spherical optic. The anterior and the posterior surface of the lens are spherical. Light-rays not travelling through the center of the lens are more aberrated and the focus is dispersed. This defocus is called “spherical aberration”.

Aspheric IOLs correct a spherical aberration. Depending on the results of your eye-exam we select a lens for you that corrects best.

An aspheric lens can improve visual acuity in dim light conditions and make your vision crisper.

Non-toric lens types:

Aspheric lenses for reduced glare and crisper image

Aspheric lenses with extended depth of focus (EDOF)

Toric IOLs

Toric IOLs correct astigmatism. These lenses are individually crafted and have to be implanted with great precision.

Toric IOLs can also have the function of an extended depth of focus or multifocality. All are aspheric.

Different toric IOLs:

Aspheric toric IOLs for reduced glare and crisper vision for eyes with astigmatism

Aspheric toric IOLs with extended depth of focus (EDOF) to allow for vision close-up and in the distance.

Multifocal IOLs

Multifocal respectively trifocal IOLs enable vision in three distances (close-up, intermediate and distance)
