Procedure details

RLE is a 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 monofocal, EDOF, or trifocal lens. RLE is a 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. The most popular are Alcon Acrysof lenses and Zeiss lenses.

The new technology of EDOF Vivity lenses enables clients to see well at a distance and arm’s length. Vivity lens also offers functional vision up close; therefore, reading glasses are not as much needed as in the case of monofocal lenses.
