Lens implantation refers to the insertion of artificial lenses to alleviate visual acuity or eye disease. Corresponding lens implants are used, for example, when the refractive error of a patient is very high or when different vision defects such as myopia and presbyopia should be corrected at the same time. The use of lens implants makes it possible to dispense with visual aids such as glasses or contact lenses and thus represents a low-risk alternative to the lasering of the eye lenses.

Depending on visual defects, eye disease and age of a patient, different methods of lens implantation and corresponding lens implants come into question. These offer, among other things, patients with very thin corneas an efficient alternative to modern eye laser procedures. Basically, lens surgery distinguishes between the following two methods:

  • The artificial lens is implanted (phak) in addition to your own eye lens.
  • The artificial lens is used instead of the own eye lens (aphak).

Irrespective of the method, lens implantation is an outpatient procedure performed within a few minutes per eye under local anesthesia. Patients can go home immediately after the operation, but should re-enter the eye center for follow-up. In order to prevent patients accidentally touching the treated eye after surgery, surgeons connect it directly afterwards. Lens implantations of both eyes are usually performed on different days - usually 48 hours between lens operations.

Basically, a lens implantation is a routine intervention - as early as 1949, the first artificial lens was used successfully. Approximately 800,000 lens surgeries are performed each year - the most common cause is clouding of the lens due to cataracts.

Over 99 percent of all treatments run smoothly and lead to flawless results. Nevertheless, should problems arise, lasting damage can be prevented by fast action of the specialists.

Lens replacement surgery also can correct myopia (nearsightedness), but generally it is not recommended when LASIK, PRK or phakic IOLs are available. The procedure for refractive lens exchange is virtually identical to cataract surgery. 2020-03-11 Lens Replacement

Lens replacement

Lens replacement is a surgery procedure of exchanging an injured natural biconvex transparent lens to an artificial endoprosthesis. Lens replacement becomes essential because of its opacification, transparency loss, induration development of its tissues that lead to various visuognosis disorders: myopia, hyperopia, light perception abnormality, cataract, etc. Lens replacement is a perfect way of eyesight recovery.

Refractive lens replacement

Refractive lens replacement is a surgery of setting up an additional artificial lens into the eye in addition to a natural eye lens. This lens replacement procedure in Germany is indicated for patients with a severe myopia form, astigmatism, and hyperopia. This surgery is an effective procedure, especially in cases when laser eye surgery is disallowed for a patient. Lens replacement is a perfect alternative to contact lenses and diopter glasses.

German ophthalmological clinic in Friedrichshafen accurately provides refractive eye surgeries. Highly-qualified specialists carefully diagnose a patient’s state and fit the phakic intraocular lenses, which provide an excellent visual acuity, on an individual basis.

Refractive lens replacement in Germany is aimed to have a bi phakia. Lens implantation is carried out without direct native eye lens removal. That’s why light refraction correction inside the eye system involves two lenses.

The technology consists of a phakic lens injection into a posterior or an anterior chamber of the eyeball. A posterior chamber implant is set up behind the iris in front of the eye lens. It is safely located in this site without any displacement and artificially fixation because of space narrowness.

The anterior chamber endoprosthesis can be fixed using holding elements between cornea and iris. “Artisan-Iris-Claw-Lens” lenses are quite popular among patients in Germany. This type of lenses can be easily implanted in the ophthalmology department of Friedrichshafen clinic.
The refractive lens replacement procedure is carried out through the micro-incision of 2.5 mm-length, which is self-sealing after surgical procedures. During the surgery doctors use local anesthesia, which is well tolerated by patients of any age? The lens replacement in Germany is being conducted during 10-15 minutes and is an office-based procedure. The post-surgical period requires a patient to follow special hygiene rules within 1-2 months and introduce some lifestyle limitations. These changes are not complicated and are easy to get used to.
