Procedure details

Surgery Performance

RLE with EDOF Vivity is performed in local anaesthesia. The natural lens is painlessly crushed with ultrasound and removed through a microincision. Our experienced eye surgeon implants a new high quality Vivity lens. RLE is performed in an ambulatory setting during which an optical element (intraocular lens) is permanently implanted in the eye. It takes about 10 minutes per eye. The patient can leave the clinic immediately after the surgery. The next day is a postoperative check-up. Intraocular lenses AcrySof IQ Vivity are produced by Alcon, an American company, and have been approved for use by the European Union and the USFDA.

Patient Requirements

Refractive lens exchange is suitable for patients over 40 years of age with disorders beyond the scope of laser eye surgery. A free online evaluation by our eye surgeons is available for you in order to assess your suitability for the RLE surgery and type of lens implants.

Benefits

The main advantage of RLE is removing eye prescription. It is also a preventive treatment - patients after refractive lens exchange are no more at risk of cataract, and the risk of paroxysmal glaucoma is substantially reduced. To patients who would also like to get rid of reading glasses, we recommend the trifocal (multifocal) lens exchange method, which is a refractive lens exchange completed with so-called trifocal (multifocal) intraocular lens implantation. Another option is Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) Lenses. The new technology of EDOF Vivity lenses enable clients to see well at distance and arm’s length, which significantly reduces the dependence on prescription glasses for intermediate and far. Vivity lens also offers functional vision up close, therefore reading glasses are not as much needed as in the case of monofocal lenses.

FAQS

How long do I have to stay in the Czech Republic?

arrow-procedures
Laser eye surgery generally takes three days, while cataract surgery and lens replacement require a minimum of five days.

What if I will have issues with my eyes after I return home?

arrow-procedures
It is sporadic that you would see unplanned postoperative care once home. However, if you notice any vision changes, it is best to have your eyes checked soon by your ophthalmologist at home. It is also possible to schedule an appointment at our clinic.

When can I return to normal activities?

arrow-procedures
You may return to your everyday life two days after treatment with all eye surgeries. Lens replacement and cataract surgery require more care, however. You will use eye drops for 4 weeks after the surgery. You’ll need to be more cautious during this time. For example, no public pool, no heavy lifting, avoiding contact sports, or risk of injury to the eye.

Driving is usually possible from the 3rd to the 7th day after the surgery. However, because of the individual process of neuroadaptation, it may take longer for some clients to feel comfortable driving. You’ll need to visit your local designated transportation authority to remove “lenses required for driving.
