EDOF - Extended Depth Of Focus IOL

St Paul’s Laser Vision has been conducting successful refractive lens treatments in Liverpool for over 25 years. Clients trust our world-leading consultants and extended depth of focus IOL surgeries in partnership with the NHS.

As we age, the natural lens of our eyes gradually loses flexibility, leading to presbyopia—a condition that makes it challenging to focus on nearby objects. If you find yourself struggling with reading glasses or bifocals, there is an innovative solution that can enhance your vision at multiple distances. EDOF (Extended Depth Of Focus) lens eye surgery offers a new approach to achieving clear vision with reduced dependency on corrective eyewear.

    How EDOF lens eye surgery works

    EDOF lens eye surgery is similar to cataract surgery but involves the implantation of an advanced intraocular lens (IOL) that extends the range of vision, providing a more seamless transition between near, intermediate, and distance vision. Unlike traditional monofocal lenses, which only correct vision at a single distance, EDOF lenses utilize advanced technology to distribute light throughout the eye, enhancing vision clarity at different focal points.

    Who is suitable for EDOF lens surgery?

    EDOF lens eye surgery can be a transformative solution for individuals experiencing presbyopia and seeking enhanced vision without the limitations of reading glasses or bifocals. However, it may not be suitable for everyone, as the candidacy for EDOF lens surgery depends on several factors, including:

    • Prescription Stability: Candidates should have a stable vision prescription to ensure optimal results from the surgery.
    • Eye Health: Good overall eye health is crucial to undergo the surgery successfully.
    • Lifestyle: Those with dynamic lifestyles and diverse visual needs may find EDOF lenses particularly beneficial.
    • Desire for Reduced Dependency on Glasses: If you prefer to minimise your reliance on corrective eyewear and enjoy a more natural visual experience, EDOF lens surgery may be an excellent option.

    Before your EDOF treatment

    1. Welcome

    You’ll be seen by your surgeon who will review your clinical measurements, examine you and answer any additional questions that you may have.

    2. Drops

    Local anaesthetics eye drops will be instilled in the eyes to ensure they are completely numb and comfortable throughout the procedure.

    3. Treatment

    The operation will usually take 10 to 15 minutes, during which you will see various lights, and feel the occasional sensation of water and pressure.
    Following the surgery your vision will be blurry as the anaesthetic begins to wear off and recovery begins. You will have a clear shield taped over the operated eye, sometimes with a white pad for comfort, which remains in place until the following morning.

    4. Aftercare

    You’ll be taken to a rest room to relax with your eyes closed. The consultant surgeon will examine your eye 20 to 30 minutes later.

    5. Future

    You’ll be given your post-surgery drops and instructions and a follow appointment up will be arranged for the next day.
