Cataract and lens replacement surgery is an established routine procedure carried out over 28 million times per year worldwide. There are over 1 million operations each year in Germany alone. The method is one of the most common and successful outpatient procedures.
Local anaesthesia is used to numb the eye. Patients may experience slight itching or minor pain after the operation. This normally ends 24 to 48 hours after the procedure at the latest.
Many patients can see better just a few hours after the operation but there may be some blurriness for around 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. The best results are usually visible from the twelfth week, but this can take up to six months in rare cases.
Usually one week after the operation but it’s best to ask your specialist for advice.
The success rate of multifocal premium IOLs is very high. Some patients experience some initial haze and fogging that often disappears once the second eye has undergone the procedure.
The unique, refractive optical design of Teleon’s multifocal IOL reduces the kind of halo and haze issue often associated with a diffractive ring-shaped multifocal design to an absolute minimum.
Depending on the lens type, you will no longer need distance, computer or reading glasses and may be completely glasses-free in many cases.
Normally, your eye surgeon will implant the second lens shortly after the first.
Typically, one follow-up appointment is required per eye. Your specialist can decide.
