Cataract surgery is one of the usual procedures we perform at the Vistaláser Ophthalmological Clinics in Málaga, Marbella and Granada. As always, we are committed to the most advanced technology, and in this field we are talking about multifocal intraocular lenses.
The world of ophthalmology has been using intraocular lenses for decades. Every year thousands of patients undergo this type of operation, both public and private health care. So it has become a very safe and efficient operation.
This type of artificial lens that we place in the eyes allows patients to see very closely and from a distance. In this way, you can rejuvenate your eyesight and even do without glasses for a good close-up view.
Benefits and side effects of multifocal intraocular lenses
A recent study by the Department of Ophthalmology at the University of Maastricht has reviewed the literature on benefits and side effects. After reviewing an enormous amount of scientific literature on multifocal intraocular lenses used in cataract surgery, they have concluded that their use is very positive and offers excellent near and far vision.
Today the most economical option for cataract surgery is monofocal lenses. These intraocular lenses allow you to see from a distance but require you to wear glasses to see up close. These are the lenses that Social Security usually implants in most cases so that the patient does not go blind.
Multifocal intraocular lenses go further and allow you to see well at all distances. However, this type of intraocular lens requires a visual neuroadaptation. In other words, the brain must adapt to the new focuses created by the lens. In Vistaláser we always check with contact lenses that the patient will adapt well before performing the implant.
To obtain the best result it is important to carry out a good case study before the operation. In this way, we can be sure of choosing the most appropriate intraocular lenses for the patient.
