Dr. Jørn Jørgensen on trifocal lenses: “It is a mature technology that has been clinically proven in Europe and can cure the problem of presbyopia. We believe that the femtosecond laser in combination with trifocal lens surgery will finally enable people to see better”.
Trifocal lenses, the latest generation of multifocal lenses, are sophisticated artificial lenses. In contrast to multifocal lenses, trifocal lenses have a focal point in the intermediate region in addition to the focal point in the distance and near. The intermediate area is the area of vision that is used for computer work and is frequently used in everyday life – whether for recognizing small print, reading from the mobile phone screen or reading newspapers. The use of trifocal lenses makes it possible to see at different distances without glasses.
The use of trifocal lenses is a first-class method of correcting presbyopia and can also correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
