If laser eye surgery can’t be performed or is not your first choice, an ExtraLens implantation is a smart alternative. The eye specialist places a plastic lens in front of the lens of your eye. The ExtraLens is a kind of contact lens in your eye, not on your eye. It’s not visible and will last a lifetime. Particularly appropriate for correcting distance vision. Also possible for extreme deviations in strength, dry eyes or a thin cornea.

ExtraLens: a contact lens inside your eye

An advanced artificial lens, specially tailored to your eyes, is placed in the posterior chamber of the eye. This is behind the iris and in front of the natural lens. Once implanted, the ExtraLens can remain in place for a lifetime.
The lens can also be removed without any problems if necessary.

ExtraLenses are made of elastic material. Therefore, they can be easily folded and inserted into the eye during the procedure. This also means that only a minuscule opening in the cornea is necessary, allowing for quick recovery.

ExtraLenses - Step by step

1: Anesthesia with eye drops.
2: The ophthalmologist makes a minuscule opening in the cornea.
3: The ExtraLens is placed in the posterior chamber and positioned correctly.
4: The opening in the cornea heals naturally.
