FineVision Trifocal RLE


FineVision Trifocal RLE (refractive lens exchange)

FineVision® Trifocal Intraocular Lenses replace the natural lens of the eye after cataract surgery.
With FineVision® Trifocal Intraocular Lenses, you can be free to see the world without spectacles.
From a distant street sign to a close-up smart phone and everything in between.
The procedure is quick and simple and happens thousands of times every day around the world.
In fact, the number of cataract surgeries performed around the world is expected to exceed 27 million by 2019.
So talk to Dr Furness and the team today. And you could be looking at the world with a fresh pair of eyes.

Instead of looking for your spectacles.

RLE surgery is completed using the same technique as cataract surgery although no cataract is present.  The clear natural lens inside the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).  It is popular with patients who are above the age of 40.  RLE is a great alternative to laser eye surgery for those over 40 as it can offer a more permanent near vision result as well as great distance vision.  By replacing the natural lens, you will never suffer with cataracts or the visual deterioration caused by cataracts.


At your consultation

Dr Furness will establish the degree of refractive error present (glasses prescription) and determines which lens option would work best based on the tests performed and your visual preferences.


Trifocals (also known as multifocals)

 Distance, intermediate and near vision can be achieved unaided and are analternative for those that do not tolerate monovision.  Using newest available lens technology, FineVision, created by Bausch & Lomb, many patients don’t need to wear glasses for everyday tasks such as driving, reading the car speedometer or even using their smart phone.


What happens on the day of surgery?

RLE surgery takes only 30 minutes and your outpatient visit to Perth Eye Hospital will be approximately 3 hours.  You are required to begin an eye drop 3 days prior to your procedure and more medicated eye drops will be provided by the nursing staff on the day of your procedure.  You will be advised to take these eye drops for a short period after your procedure to optimize your healing time and reduce the likelihood of post operative complications.
