INTRAOCULAR IMPLANTS



When laser treatment cannot correct the visual defect, it is possible to offer intraocular implant surgery, in order to effectively correct vision disorders.
These intraocular implants are of two types.

  • The Phakic implant is implanted in front of or behind the iris, without removing the lens.
  • The Aphakic implant is implanted in place of the crystalline lens, after its extraction.

PHAKIC INTRAOCULAR IMPLANTS

Phakic intraocular lenses are an excellent alternative in the case of strong myopia or hypermetropia and, as a rule, for visual defects unsuited to laser correction. The process is reversible since it is possible to later remove this lens.

The operation procedure requires a simple local anaesthesia, and a slight incision of a few millimetres to introduce the lens. This intervention lasts a few minutes, and the patient can leave the clinic an hour later, with the operated eye protected.

It is necessary to perform the procedure independently on each eye, one week apart.


PHAKIC INTRAOCULAR IMPLANTS

Aphakic intraocular implants are used in two cases. The first case is cataract surgery and the second is the removal of the crystalline lens.

In both cases, it is possible to use multifocal and / or toric implants, which will correct far vision and near vision. Like laser-operated patients, these lens-operated patients will no longer need glasses.

These implants require only a short, painless and precise outpatient operation. Anaesthesia in the majority of cases is via instillation of eye drops.


WHAT ARE THE POST-OPERATIVE IMPLICATIONS? WHAT ARE THE RESULTS?

The aftermath of the intervention is painless. Vision improves quickly and one generally recovers in a few days. Treatment in the form of eye drops is to be followed for several days and an annual check up is necessary.

The visual correction is precise and allows you to be free of glasses.
