To Whom The Smart Lens is Applied?
Smart lens, which is used in cataract operations, can be applied to a large proportion of cataract patients if there is no specific reason. Smart lens (GIM) can also be applied to people who do not have cataract at a young age but who have advanced hyperopia or can not have laser operation because of high myopia and who want to get rid of their glasses at an early age.
Smart lens may be preferred if people who have undergone eye laser operation, have decreased vision due to deformation in the intraocular lenses, and can not see near or far.
Professional status, age, social activity, reading habits and intellectual level of patients with cataracts are also important in patient selection.
Proper patient selection, appropriate technique, the experience of the institution and the physician performing the surgery and of course the right lens selection will provide high success in these surgeries.
How To Apply A Smart Lens?
In smart lens surgery, the same procedures are applied as standard cataract surgery.
In cataract surgery, the natural lens in the eye is removed and replaced with a lens which is suitable for the internal structure of the eye and improves the vision of the patient. However, in contrast to the cataract surgery, instead of placing a standard lens (only pointing far, requiring glasses for near), Smart lens (pointing near and far) is inserted into the eye.
What Are The Advantages Of Smart Lens?
Smart Lenses can focus close, far and medium-distance depending on their multi-focus design. This lens, which is placed during cataract surgery, remains in the eye for life.
Meticulously applied Smart Lens placement has an average time of 10 minutes without applying sutures and it is the simplest solution to the distant and near vision problems which improves the patients visual capability.
The eye number will not progress again with the Smart Lens. Cataract surgery is performed once and no more cataracts occur in the eye.
