If you’re thinking about trying premium lenses to replace your natural eye lenses that have been clouded or darkened too much by cataracts, then you must consider the new trifocal intraocular lens, which has been used in over 70 countries after multiple studies had proved its effectiveness.
A trifocal intraocular lens, also known as PanOptix trifocal intraocular lens, is a small, artificial lens composed of foldable acrylic. It provides sharp vision at distance and can replace damaged natural lenses in the eye.
Recently, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved these lenses in the United States after many clinical studies indicated good visual acuities at near, intermediate, and distant ranges after using these lenses.
A trifocal intraocular lens provides a great deal of value and benefits. In short, here are the benefits you will receive from these lenses:
As mentioned already, the trifocal intraocular lens is often given as part of cataract surgery, which is an outpatient procedure that requires quick recovery. The steps of the surgery include:
Your doctor will use numbing eye drops or injectable drugs to help you relax throughout the procedure, but you will be awake.
Next, they will make small incisions to reach the lens of your eye, use special tools to break them up into small pieces, and remove them from your eye.
Finally, they will place the new trifocal intraocular lens into place.
Many clinical studies have proved the safety of trifocal intraocular lenses; however, these lenses have visible concentric lines that can cause halos around the oncoming headlights, especially at night. Therefore, it is highly recommended to avoid night driving. In addition, cataract surgery itself carries some potential side effects, such as:

The trifocal intraocular lens is placed in the eye through surgery, so that the patient can see at close distances of 35 to 45 cm, average distances of 60 to 80 cm, and also long distances of 5 meters and above, without the need to wear glasses.
– The eye should be covered with eyeglass or a piece of fabric at night during the first days after the surgery.

– Avoid doing any strenuous exercise, such as lifting weights, until the doctor permits this.
This surgery is performed with a surgical microscope and it takes from 1 to 5 minutes to insert the lens. The folded lens begins to automatically adjust its position until it becomes straight and is in the final position between the lens of the eye and the iris (if it is a posterior chamber lens) or settles in the iris (if it is a anterior chamber lens).
– Inducing anesthesia by using eye drops, because general anesthesia of all kinds is not necessary for this kind of surgeries.
– The doctor places a specific instrument that keeps the eyelid open, and then begins to make a small incision inside the cornea with a size of 3 mm only.
– During the surgery, the patient’s vital signs are monitored.
– The doctor implants the lens inside the eyeball, specifically behind the iris.
– The process does not take more than 5 minutes.
