Those older than 40 who have myopia or hypermetropia problems will no longer need to use eyeglasses. The multifocal intraocular lenses are a very important technological advancement for farsighted or nearsighted patients.

These lenses enable patients to carry out their daily activities easily. The new generation intraocular lenses used in our hospital are placed by a short operation. The very same steps are applied in both standard cataract operations and multifocal lens operations. In cataract operations, the natural intraocular lens is replaced by a lens that is compatible with the interior structure of the eye and that offers better vision whereas in this surgery, the lens replaced offers solutions both for farsightedness and nearsightedness.

The lens placed by an operation stays inside life long, in other words, it is not a lens removed and worn again and again like contact lenses.
