Does lens replacement last forever? This is an easy question to answer. Yes, the lenses last forever. Lens replacement is a highly successful procedure that improves people\u2019s lives. Not only does it restore the best possible vision for people in middle age, but it is also (for the most part) a procedure that is done once. You can expect to come in for one surgery (on each eye), and then you can enjoy your life without glasses. Of course, some patients may need top-up procedures, but these are often uncomplicated, and we\u2019d rarely see that patient for a third time. Why is lens replacement surgery for life? Yes \u2013 for life. This is because of the synthetic properties of your newly implanted lenses or IOLs (Intraocular lenses). We can tackle many vision problems ranging from short-sightedness or long-sightedness to presbyopia (ageing eyes). To counteract your ageing lens that has hardened over the years and affects how you see things, your new IOLs will reverse time. Opening your eyesight to a more in-depth spectrum of viewing 1 and clearer quality. Your new lenses do not age and have the potential to outlive you! Laser methods address a different part of your eye called the cornea (the surface). This does not correct the internal lens of your eye, which will continue to age and, if left untreated, could develop into a cataract in older age. What are the chances of a secondary lens replacement procedure? Despite this being rare, our patients sometimes need to come back for top-up procedures. This could be because our patients\u2019 results were not as expected. In this case, we can either upgrade their monofocal lenses to multifocal, swap out a multifocal lens with an EDoF lens or correct any residual vision problems with laser correction. Sometimes our patients get eye injuries which are unrelated to their surgeries. We may also be able to correct these as well. Lens replacement is a big life decision and is not something to choose lightly. However, we know that the ones who opt for it don\u2019t regret it.
