Cataract disease, which prevents vision with blurring of the lens, occurs at an earlier age in diabetic patients.
Eye pressure (Glaucoma)
Glaucoma, which causes permanent visual loss by destroying the visual nerve, is approximately twice as common in a patient with diabetes as in other adults.
Preventive eye health and early diagnosis are crucial in diabetic patients. Uncontrolled diabetes leads to significant damage to the eye and loss of eye if left untreated. Therefore, patients diagnosed with diabetes should undergo an eye examination at least twice a year.
Trifocal Intraocular Lens
Trifocal intraocular lens, is the treatment of cataract patients and patients with high eyeglass numbers without cataract, performed by removing the lens in the eye and replacing it with artificial lens.
You can access the details of this application from this page.
This artificial lens, which is placed in the eye, continues to exist in the eye throughout the person’s life.
Intraocular lenses are named according to the number of focal points and their function changes.
Monofocal (monofocus), Multifocal (bifocal) and Trifocal (trifocal).
When a monofocal lens is inserted into the eye, the patient can see far without eyeglasses, but cannot read close without eyeglasses.
The patient has to wear close glasses to read newspapers or books.
When a multifocal lens is implanted, the patient can see far and close without eyeglasses, but the intermediate distance, i.e. the distance between 40 cm and 2 meters, is not clearly visible.
Trifocal lenses are the ones that solve this problem. When this lens is implanted, the patient can clearly see far, close and middle distances (distance between 40 cm and 2 meters) without eyeglasses. For example, when using a computer, the visual quality is good.
Multifocal intraocular lenses, which develop day by day just like the laser technology, are used in the treatment of various eye defects and they are seen by experts as a very important means to eliminate myopia, hyperopia and especially cataract. Intraocular lenses are applied with the same ease as standard lenses. These lenses often provide the patient with good vision for life.
Multifocal lenses are particularly advantageous in cataract patients. This method can be applied easily in patients with newly started cataract. Because with this method, the cataracts of the patient are treated as well as near and far visual defects can be corrected at the same time. Intraocular lenses placed in the eye do not cause any problem. Intraocular lenses made with different materials such as acrylic and silicone do not react with the eye.
Intraocular lens operations are performed by applying drops or anesthesia according to the patient’s condition.
Patients with myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism numbers too high for treatment with excimer laser
Those who do not want to wear close or far eyeglasses
Patients with corneal thickness not suitable for laser
Patients with cataracts and high refractive error
ADVANTAGES OF INTRAOCULAR LENSES
- Ability to cure almost any degree of refractive error
- Predictable results at all levels
- Preservation of high optical quality
- Almost no side effects after surgery
- Combination with other refractive surgeries if necessary
