Refractive lens exchange (clear lens extraction) involves replacing your lens (the eye’s natural lens), which has lost its ability to focus at close range, with an artificial lens.
This lens is customised to your visual needs. There are two types of artificial lenses available to correct presbyopia, all of which have certain advantages and disadvantages.
Note that all lenses have a UV filter to protect the delicate retina.
EDOF lenses (lenses with increased depth of field)
The strength of this type of lens is good intermediate vision (computer, newspaper, tablet, smartphone) without too much disadvantage in distance vision.
However, near vision and reading small texts will be difficult. Most patients will therefor need an additional pair of reading glasses.
For maximum independence from glasses, this is the best solution.
These lenses are designed to provide optimal coverage of all distances. The vast majority of patients will no longer need glasses.
The latest generation of multifocal lenses offer better contrast vision than their predecessors and also feature violet filter technology to reduce the appearance of halos and starbursts around lights, which is crucial when driving at night.
