for the Correction of Severe Myopia and Hyperopia
Moderate and higher nearsightedness as well as farsightedness cannot be corrected through corneal ablation alone. Therefore, higher refractive errors are compensated by implanting an additional lens into the eye (phakic lens) or by replacing the natural lens with a synthetic lens of adjusted refractive power.
Lens procedures allow a good predictability of the result and if needed, an enhancement procedure is possible by a follow-up laser correction (Bioptics) or by exchanging the lens.
Phakic Lens Implants
With this procedure, an additional synthetic lens is implanted into the eye to correct the existing refractive error.
Laser Refractive Lens Surgery with a femtosecond laser
The eye's own lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens.
Multifocal lenses provide relief for presbyopia and for nearsightedness or farsightedness.
Toric lenses are a special type of lens that correct nearsightedness or farsightedness as well as an accompanying astigmatism. They can be used for lens implants and lens exchanges.
