This procedure involves positioning an artificial lens inside the eye, replacing the eye’s natural lens.
We offer a wide range of lenses, including multi-focal lenses, which aim to correct close, intermediate and distance vision.
You’re most likely to be suitable for one of our Intraocular lens treatments.
The easiest way to think of an Intraocular lens is as a contact lens that’s positioned inside the eye rather than on its surface.
The most common reasons for patients being recommended an IOL treatment is either a very high prescription (higher than -10 or +5) or the very early signs of cataracts beginning to form.
The lenses available for an Intraocular procedure are state-of-the-art and may be selected for each individual based upon their prescription and requirements from the lens. They can correct higher levels of long sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism.
Ultralase offer two different IOL procedures.
Implantable Contact Lenses (ICLs)
An Implantable Contact Lenses involves placing a tiny lens inside the eye with the eye’s natural lens remaining in place. The artificial lens acts like a contact lens in providing extra focusing ability and therefore correcting your distance vision, while maintaining your ability to focus for near vision. The procedure can be reversed at a later stage if required.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
This procedure involves removing the eye’s natural lens and positioning an artificial lens in its place. There are a wide range of lenses that can be used, including multi-focal, which correct both distance and reading vision.
