Add-On IOLs

The very latest in refractive and lens exchange surgery.

Sometimes after a procedure, like cataract surgery or refractive lens surgery, a residual refractive error can remain, meaning that the refractive defect cannot be excluded completely.

Rather than live with the continued discomfort, the ophthalmologist may consider performing an operation with an Add-On lens. This can repair the residual damage and improve your vision even further.

Strive for perfection. Add-Ons could be your solution.

Who are Add-Ons lenses for?

After cataract surgery or refractive lens surgery, a residual refractive error can remain, meaning that the refractive defect cannot be excluded completely. It is not possible to exactly predict the position of the lens in the eye, and if the lens is not perfectly in place it can cause refractive changes. For this reason, when the patient obtains stable refraction after surgery, the ophthalmologist may consider performing an operation with an Add-On lens.

In the case of LASIK surgery, a residual refractive error can also remain. These patients are also candidates for this type of surgery if it is not possible to operate on them again with laser and they have an intraocular lens implanted.

This operation is performed when there is already an artificial lens in the eye, or when surgical removal of the crystalline lens is planned. Also, if it was not already, this new lens can be multifocal to enable vision at all distances.

Add-Ons are implanted in the following cases

Correction of residual refraction (myopia, hypermetropia or astigmatism) after cataract or refractive lens surgery.

Operation in one or two steps in conjunction with the implant of a multifocal lens.

Strengthening of the capsular intraocular lens as correction of high ametropia.

Congenital cataract in children.

How do I know if I qualify?

There are four different types of Add-On lens procedures. In order to know which path is correct for you, we must do a thorough examination. Schedule with us today!
