trifocal lens

A world-leading centre for lens implant surgery

Cataracts and presbyopia are conditions associated with the ageing of the eye, whereby the lens becomes cloudy and/or harder and less elastic.  The preferred treatment at the London Eye Hospital is to remove the lens and replace it with a new one. This is usually recommended instead of laser surgery for presbyopia as the eye keeps on changing as it ages.

The World's first Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) Implant

The London Eye Hospital is able to offer all the latest developments in lens implantation for the treatment of cataracts and presbyopia, some of them exclusive for the UK.  These new, sophisticated lenses offer a far better correction of vision than the older style monofocal lens, which often required the use of complementary glasses:

Light Adjustable Lens

  • The Light Adjustable lens - can be adjusted after surgery to give 20/20 vision

  • The Trifocal lens - allows the patient to switch naturally between distances
  • The Synchrony Dual Optic Accommodating Lens - expands and contracts naturally, mimicking the action of a young healthy lens and restoring the ability to see well at all distances.
  • Tecnis and Rayner multifocal implants - the latest multifocals designed to reduce the glare and halo effect that can occur with older style lenses
