Lens change

Are you considering switching from reading a physical book to listening to an audiobook? Do you struggle with reading product descriptions because the font is too small, or find that your bedside lamp isn't bright enough? Many people over 45 understand the frustration of feeling that their arms are too short to read comfortably.

As we age, our vision undergoes changes. The lens in our eyes gradually loses elasticity over the years. When we are young, the lens can quickly adjust to focus on objects near and far. However, as we grow older, the elasticity of the lens decreases, making it more difficult to focus when needed. This condition is medically known as "presbyopia". Many people suffering from presbyopia undergo surgery to relieve the hassle of constantly wearing glasses for everyday activities. Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a popular surgical option that eliminates the need for glasses in more than 95% of daily activities.

An operation to replace the old inflexible lens with a new, artificial lens can be life-changing. With the new lens, patients can see clearly at short and long distances again, allowing them to resume their daily activities with ease.

An intraocular lens replacement procedure takes only 10 minutes and provides immediate results.

As we age, it is completely natural for our eyesight to gradually worsen. This condition is known as presbyopia and is most commonly experienced by people in their forties. As a result, it becomes more difficult to focus on objects that are close to us, such as the small print on a menu, newspaper, or product declaration. This can be particularly challenging in dimly lit environments.

In practice, many people feel their arms gradually become too short for everyday tasks. The problem is that the lens in the eye has become less flexible with age and therefore has more difficulty "zooming" in and out.

If you have myopia and use glasses to see distant objects, it may become necessary to have another pair of glasses to help you read or perform tasks at a short distance. For some people, managing multiple pairs of glasses can make everyday life quite challenging.

Undergoing an eye operation means that you can enjoy daily life without the need for glasses once again.

There are various options when a new lens is to be implanted. In general, lenses are divided into single and multi-strength lenses. We call these mono-focal and multifocal/trifocal lenses in the medical world, respectively. Both single and multifocal lenses are available with and without astigmatism correction.

Lifestyle and individual needs vary. Get a comprehensive eye exam and speak with an optician and ophthalmologist to determine the best lens for you.

There are various types of lenses available in the market, but at Scandinavian Eye Center, we always prioritize the use of top-quality lenses to ensure there is no compromise on quality.

Before undergoing a lens exchange procedure, it is crucial to determine the appropriate type of lens that needs to be implanted. Should a mono-focal lens be used or would a multifocal lens provide better results? Our initial consultation and interview process are designed to ensure that every patient receives the most suitable solution for their needs. Regardless of the type of lens chosen, it is important to note that they are permanent and do not require replacement later on. A lens exchange procedure, also known as "Refractive Lens Exchange" (RLE), offers the advantage of freeing most people from the need to wear glasses or contact lenses in their daily lives and also eliminates the risk of developing cataracts in the future.
Monofocal lenses offer the benefit of providing excellent contrast vision and a clear image. However, because these lenses have a specific strength, you need to choose whether you want to optimize for distance vision or reading vision. If fitted with a single-strength lens, you may still need glasses for reading or distance vision after surgery.
Multifocal and trifocal lenses offer the benefit of providing clear vision at all distances. Additionally, these lenses can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. Typically, the vision for close-up objects becomes clear almost instantly, while there may be some brief adjustment period for focusing on objects at a distance. During this time, the brain needs to adapt to the improved image quality.
Both eyes are operated on the same day, which is best because the vision center in the brain has an easier time getting used to the new sight. This is because the vision center in the brain adjusts better to the new sight. The procedure is done on an outpatient basis at the clinic, using local anesthesia with eye drops. The process of lens exchange only takes about 10-15 minutes.
We offer the lenses and the operation only as a private treatment with full payment by yourself. However, if you are a member of "Sygesikringen Danmark", you can get a subsidy for this treatment. If you have health insurance, you can also get a subsidy. If you have any questions or want to know more about this treatment option, feel free to contact us. We also provide a non-binding preliminary examination to thoroughly examine your eyes and vision. Based on the results, we can advise you on whether you should consider a lens replacement with multifocal lenses.
