How is the Lens Replacement surgery performed?

  1. The surgery starts with applying aesthetic eye drops will help to numb the eye that will be undergoing surgery. The lens replacement surgery is performed under local anaesthetic. and is painless. The surgeon will make a tiny incision to the edge of your cornea to insert the artificial lens.
  2. The surgery is usually completed without stitches, as the tiny incision heals by itself. After the lens replacement surgery your eye will be covered in a bandage for a couple of hours. You will be advised how to use presrcibed eye medication in the operated eye.
  3. Just after lens replacement surgery, you might experience a mild pain around your eye, itchy eye, blurred vision, or discomfort when looking at bright lights. We advise our clients to bring sunglasses with them and wear them to reduce sensitiveness to the light.

The patient can choose based on a recommendation from Lens Replacement surgeon from intraocular lenses:

  • Monofocal lenses improve near or far vision, depending on the patient’s choice; the patient still has to wear glasses for the other distance
  • Trifocal / Multifocal lenses,  thanks to which he or she will have good near and far vision, completely getting rid of glasses
  • Aspheric lenses, whichprovide better vision in the dark
  • Toric lenses, which correct astigmatism

On long-term basis the Eye Centre Prague cooperates with Lenstec, an American producer of intraocular lenses and one of few holders of a certificate of the American FDA (the Food and Drug Administration, the association responsible for protecting public health and product safety and technology).

The premium Lenstec lenses are made from the most quality and time-tested biocompatible materials. The lenses are meant to last a lifetime, but if problems do arise they can be easily removed and replaced without causing permanent damage to the eye.

Accurate vision

The Lenstec intraocular lenses are the only in the world having the quarter-size increments of power.

The 0.25D increments have been used for a long time for glasses and contact lenses, and thanks to the Lenstec advanced technology this advantage is available for the intraocular lenses at last.

The high technology precision and dioptre increments make your post-operative vision as good as possible. Thanks to the special technological production method the achieved intraocular lens tolerance is ±0.11D, while the ISO and industry standard is ±0,40D.

All of the intraocular lenses used at the Eye Centre Prague can be placed into your eye through a very small incision (approx. 2.2mm), which enables fast and safe healing.
