Prelex

Prelex (PREsbyopic Lens EXchange) uses an identical technique to that of cataract surgery, where a multifocal lens is implanted. In the case of presbyopia, the lens which has lost its accommodative power is replaced with a multifocal lens.

This intervention is aimed more specifically at presbyopic patients aged over 50, in particular if there is another refractive error such as hypermetropia.

The goal is to free the patient of dependency on glasses for far, intermediate, and close vision.

  • The implantation of multifocal lenses is performed through a micro incision of 2.2 mm under local anaesthesia drops
  • Both eyes are operated a few days apart
  • Recovery time is extremely fast

Phake implants*

*(Phake means that the lens is preserved)

Phake lenses are meant for patients who cannot benefit from laser surgery, either because their refractive error is too high or because their cornea is too thin. In this case, a phake lens is placed inside the eye to correct the defect. This type of lens, which is invisible to the naked eye, can be placed in front of the iris (ARTISAN lens) or behind it (ICL lens).

In the case of presbyopia, the lens which has lost its accommodative capacity is replaced with a multifocal lens that restores clear sight at any distance without glasses. 

  • The implantation of phake and multifocal lenses is carried out through a micro incision of 2.2 mm under local anaesthesia drops
  • Both eyes are operated a few days apart
  • Recovery time is extremely fast

Clear lens extraction

This intraocular technique consists of replacing the clear lens that has no cataract. It allows the internal lens of the eye to be removed and replaced with a predetermined implant that will allow clear vision. This procedure, which is derived from cataract surgery, is aimed at patients aged over 45 who are very myopic (-10 to -15 diopters).

Bioptics

This is the combination of laser treatment (Lasik, Femtosecond Lasik or PRK) with intraocular lens implantation to correct high myopia.
