Lens implants in patients without cataract

Lens implants in patients without cataract

IOL implants can also be used in patients who:

1. Secondary lens implant: (Sulcoflex)

You may already have had cataract surgery with monofocal IOLs and dislike using reading spectacles. A specialist secondary multifocal IOL can be implanted in front of the existing implant to minimise the need for reading spectacles.

2. PRELEX:

Some patients in their 40s and 50s who don’t have a cataract, but are presbyopic, can find that using reading spectacles interferes with their daily life. They can opt for lens replacement with a premium IOL to remove the need for reading spectacles.

3. RLE:

Some younger patients who have no cataract but have a strong spectacle prescription and can’t use contact lenses, or are unsuitable for corneal laser refractive surgery, have the option of an implantable contact lens (ICL).  This sits in front of the crystalline lens and removes the need for continual spectacle use.
