You can learn about trifocal lens with this article. Thanks to the ability to adapt (accommodation), the clarity of the image is maintained when looking at a close object from a distant object. The ciliary muscles inside the eye contract and relax and as a result, the thickness of the transparent lens changes. This also changes the refractive power of the lens. Lenses lose their flexibility as age progresses. We lose the accommodation we make to see up close. This situation usually starts after the age of 40s and the times become more severe.
What is Trifocal Lens?
Trifocal lenses are intraocular lenses that provide clear vision at near, intermediate and far distances. Single focal lenses that only sharpen the distance reveal the need to use glasses for near vision. These leses are 3-focal (trifocal). With these focuses, the need for glasses is eliminated. Thus, patients can perform near (using a telephone, etc.), medium (cooking, using a computer, etc.) and far (driving a car, watching movies, etc.) distance activities without using glasses. With this treatment, you can see every distance clearly without glasses.
You do not need to stay in the hospital after trifocal intraocular lens surgery. The first day after the operation should be rested. You should not neglect your routine checks after surgery.
Who Are Suitable For Trifocal Lenses?
• Who have trouble seeing near or far,
• Have cataracts,
• Do not want to use glasses and
• Eye structure can be applied to those suitable for these lenses.
If your eyes are not suitable for trifocal lenses, you don’t have to worry. There are also lenses produced with ‘edof’ technology that allow you to see the middle and long distance comfortably. Special versions of these lenses are also available for patients with astigmatism.
Can Trifocal Lenses Be Replaced After Fitting?
Changing intraocular lenses is not recommended unless there is a disease or problem. It is very important to decide which lens to choose before cataract surgery. Trifocal lens therapy may not be suitable for every patient. Choosing the right lens for the patient is very important. Patients should be examined in detail before surgery.

I want to get rid of the glasses. Is the trifocal lens a solution for me?
People who do not have cataracts and want to get rid of their glasses can wear a trifocal lens by changing refractive lenses. However, trifocal lenses are not suitable for anyone who does not want to wear glasses. In order to perform this treatment, the eye structure of the patient must be evaluated in detail.
