Implantable premium lenses:
The different types and procedures offered by DOmed

As of now, the DOmed eye specialists can offer premium lenses in accordance with the co-payment agreement, resulting in huge savings for the patient. The surgical ophthalmologists at DOmed not only fulfil the conditions of participation set by the agreement between health insurers and the BDOC (Federal Association of Ophthalmic Surgeons), but exceed the conditions considerably in many areas.

Aspherical lenses

Aspherical lenses are used to improve contrast vision. These lenses are better able to display images, as the asphericity of the lenses reduces the eye’s aberration (spherical aberration) (all the light rays are focused at one point).

Toric lenses

Toric lenses provide the opportunity to treat existing astigmatism during cataract surgery. This allows you to see distant objects even without glasses. The toric lenses improve contrast vision and give significantly improved visual acuity without glasses in patients who suffer from astigmatism.

Multifocal intraocular lenses (mIOL)

The eye can lose the ability to focus at different distances, not only with increasing age.
This process is known as accommodation. While young, healthy eyes are able to alter their refractive power and thereby depict objects in sharp focus at various distances, this ability declines with age. Between the ages of 45 and 55, presbyopia affects everyone, making it the most frequent reason for wearing glasses.
Multifocal intraocular lens (mIOL)​

With artificial multifocal lenses, presbyopia can be compensated for, as can severe long– or short-sightedness. In many cases, this means independence from glasses or contact lenses.

Monofocal visual impression:
Distant objects appear in focus, but close-by objects appear blurry. This must be compensated for with glasses.
Multifocal visual impression:
Both distant and close-by objects appear in focus. Glasses become unnecessary.

Multifocal lenses have several focus points. There are two main focal points – one for distant objects and one for close-by objects. They are composed of several rings with different refractive powers. Distribution of the incident light onto several focal points allows sharp vision in all directions. Often, glasses become completely unnecessary after the operation.

When are artificial multifocal lenses suitable/unsuitable?

Artificial multifocal lenses can be used with the following indications:

  • Patients from the ages of 45 or 50 when presbyopia  has set in or is imminent
  • Patients who cannot be treated with LASIK due to severe visual defects
  • Patients with cataracts who require an artificial lens

Those not suited for artificial multifocal lenses are:

The anatomy of the eye or extreme astigmatism may also be an exclusion criterion. A thorough preliminary examination is important for the success of the operation and subsequent optimal vision.

Tecnis Symfony

Tecnis symfony allows sharp vision at various distances by extending the depth of field.

Normal multifocal lenses have various refractive zones which allow vision at short or long distances. The incident light is thereby distributed between various focal points.

The brain chooses the depiction on the retina which matches the situation.
Tecnis Symfony​

The Tecnis Symfony, on the other hand, allows life without glasses with just one image.

This lens combines two technologies:

The optical design enables expansion of the depth of field in various stages. At the same time, contrast vision is increased by the correction of light rays of various wavelengths.
