Refractive errors can affect your quality of life, and several treatment options for these eye problems are available. However, even with a thorough assessment and quality medical care, the procedure results can change.
While refractive error treatments with intraocular lens implantation (IOL) offer several benefits, they also have certain limitations. For example, some lens used during implantable lens surgery only improves vision at a certain distance this particularly applies to high prescriptions or complex refractive errors but, you can opt for an adjustable Sulcoflex lens implantation .
These lenses frequently used for candidates who already had lens implantations but not satisfy with their vision due to remaining prescription or issue with reading so if you unhappy with your cataract implantation and its lense you can consider these lenses for more accurate correction of vision .Call Optimal Vision for advise
Sulcoflex lens also can be planned in advance as primary combine surgery called Duet, This treatment involves implantation of the primary capsular bag IOL and a secondary Sulcoflex sulcus intraocular lens. This procedure is carried out as a planned DUET procedure alongside the initial cataract surgery.
This DUET procedure is easy but may prolong the overall time for cataract surgery. This procedure offers patients an adjustable solution.
The duet procedure requires Rayner’s Sulcoflex lens. The IOLs are specifically designed for sulcus implantation, eliminating the issues associated with two biconvex lenses implanted in the capsular bag.
The lens has special haptics and optics design, making it unique. The Sulcoflex IOLs have a convex/concave optic design, giving an average distance between 500 microns lenses to prevent interlenticular opacification. Suflcoflex lenses are also available in Toric and Aspheric options.
The Sulcoflex Trifocal is suitable for patients with pseudophakic vision after implanting a monofocal toric capsular bag or primary monofocal IOL. The eye surgeon will implant the capsular bag IOL during the procedure and treat the sphere to correct distance vision. Afterwards, they will implant the Plano Sulcoflex Trifocal, which consists of the Trifocal optics patented by Rayner with +3.50D for near vision and +1.75D for better intermediate vision.
Combining these lenses gives the patient clear vision for all distances.
You can undergo the Sulcoflex Trifical implantation procedure if you have high prescription(refractive errors) and want to achieve a clear vision for all distances. People undergoing cataract surgery can also have the Sulcoflex Trifocal implantation simultaneously.
However, a few reasons make patients unsuitable for the capsular bag multifocal intraocular lenses.
The Sulcoflex Trifocal DUET procedure may offer a good solution for certain patients.
Sulcoflex Trifocal implantation in a DUET procedure is easy due to easy use injectors
The Sulcoflex Trifocal lens is adjustable, allowing you to treat many patients with presbyopia to meet lifestyle and visual needs. Unlike the refractive laser treatments and capsular bag monofocal intraocular lenses, The Sulfoflex lens implantation procedure is easily reversible.
The reversibility is a great advantage in cases where the resulting refractive change is inaccurate, or neuroadaptation failure occurs means there is slow or no adaptations. The surgeon can easily adjust the Sucoflex Trifocal lens or convert it to a monofocal lens with the DUET system.
Its advantages include:
Implanting a lens in anticipation of its removal may seem counter-intuitive. Still, it is reassuring to know that you can get your desired outcome regardless of the treatment’s result. Sulcoflex lens implantation allows surgeons to offer refractive treatments to patients without investing in laser equipment. The procedure is cost-effective and can be done alongside cataract surgery.
With Sulcoflex lens implantation, people who have cataracts and vision issues like pseudophakic presbyopia means issue with reading or residual corneal astigmatism can simultaneously correct their eye problems.
Sulcoflex secondary lens implantation is becoming more popular for people with certain prescriptions that other vision correction procedures cannot correct. You can contact Optimal Vision on 020 7183 3725 to schedule an appointment for the Sulcoflex lens implantation.
I had an absolutely wonderful experience doing Lasik at this clinic. Their entire staff was extremely professional and courteous throughout the entire process.
My surgeon was wonderful, made me feel entirely at ease before and during surgery. Highly recommended.
Laser eye surgery, now glasses free after 23 years! :)
I have always thought about laser, I have worn glasses for 23 years. I was very anxious, worried about the what ifs. I had an appointment with Dr Mani, he explained everything to me and I decided to go ahead with the surgery. It was so fast, Dr Mani did remind me to be patient and I think this is very important. I am now glasses free and hoping this will continue! After care was good, a week after surgery I was concerned and Dr Mani invited me down to check my eyes to be sure all was ok. Thank you
LASIK with Dr. Mani
I had LASIK surgery with Dr. Mani. It was painless, smooth, and everything went well. The staff and Dr. Mani are all friendly and will answer all questions asked. Will recommend 100%! Thank you!
I had a great experience performing my laser eye surgery at Optimal Vision Clinic. All the staffs are very helpful, co-operative and supportive throughout the treatment process. On the first call, they explained the entire procedure in details and gave necessary instructions at every stage. My eye surgeon made me feel comfortable and relaxed before and during the procedure. Aftercare was done properly with a thorough check-up of my eyes. I would like to recommend this clinic to everyone!
Very happy and impressed with the highly professional care and service I’ve received at the Optimal Vision clinic. Dr Mani is so professional, and he explained everything about Laser surgery and answered all my questions. The surgery was quick and almost completely painless. My eyes have healed perfectly and quickly. I would highly recommend this clinic.
My husband had been experiencing discomfort in his left eye since July and was seen by various doctors/consultants even at the Queen Mary’s hospital but no abnormalities were found.
This week Dr. Mani discovered the fault which happened to be Retina detachment with three tears.
Dr. Mani’s preciseness and his perfectionist attitude to attention to details, detected the source of the main issue and saved my husband’s eye. We feel utterly grateful and can not recommend him enough for his excellence.
