The most modern intraocular lens Eyemax Mono
Novelty in ophthalmology!
In 2017 a new method for effective treatment of Patients with dry form of macular degeneration and other macular diseases has finally appeared. What is this method? Eyemax Mono is the world’s first macular lens widening the vision. Its implantation is a revolutionary, totally innovative and effective method of treating Patients with dry form of macular degeneration and other macular diseases has appeared.
Until now most Patients with dry form of macular degeneration would hear that “nothing can be done” to improve their vision. Even though there is no 100% effective treatment of the dry form of macular degeneration, still in Patients suffering from it and implanted with the Eyemax Mono a great improvement or recuperation of vision is observed.
The technology of the innovative Eyemax Mono lens was developed by dr. Bobby Quershi who leads the team of ophthalmological surgeons and scientists from the London Eye Hospital Pharma. It’s a team of physicians with great experience in treating Patients with macular degeneration.
In 2017 our facility became the first one in Poland to be able to use the EyeMax Mono lens in Patients with a dry form of macular degeneration, and since 2019 we have also been gaining the experience of implanting this lens in Patients with Stargardt’s Disease.
Which Patients the Eyemax Mono lens is recommended for?
The Eyemax Mono lens can help Patients with dry and some of the wet forms of the macular degeneration as well as Patients with other forms of macular diseases such as:
– diabetic macular degeneration,
– myopic macular degeneration,
– hereditary retinal degeneration such as Stargardt’s dystrophy.
The procedure of implanting the Eyemax Mono lens is suitable both for Patients who underwent the cataract removal surgery and those who did not have such procedure performed.
How does the Eyemax Mono lens work?
The lens works as a small telescope. Due to that, the image reaching the eye becomes enlarged and is then transferred to the healthy parts of the retina around the macula. This gives the Patient the opportunity to significantly improve the central vision.
Due to the fact that the EyeMax Mono lens ensures high image quality in the whole area, the brain can automatically select the image from the healthiest part of the retina.
How does Eyemax Mono lens improve vision?
By having this lens implanted, the Patient can recognize facial features, read and even drive. The percentage of vision improvement, in some people greater, in others, depends on the type and severity of the Patient’s condition.
What is the risk?
The risk of implanting the Eyemax Mono lens is no greater than the risk of cataract removal surgery, that is minor.
What is the Eyemax Mono implantation procedure?
The Eyemax Mono lens in its shape and size is no different that other lenses used in cataract removal surgeries. It is being implanted into the eye during a surgical procedure (which lasts around 30 minutes). No need to stay at the hospital overnight. Withing 24 hours after the surgery the Patient has a follow-up appointment. Recovery after the surgery is fast and does not require special medical advice being followed. For about a month after the procedure the Patient needs to apply eye drops, usually the same as those used after the cataract removal surgery.
It is recommended to implant both eyes with the Eyemax Mono lens in a short period of time. Otherwise, with each eye the Patient will be seeing images of different sizes.
After the surgery, Patients may need some time to get used to the effect of the improved vision.
It is also recommended that the Patients with the Eyemax Mono lens implanted would wait about 4 weeks before they have new glasses.
Why is it worth to have the Eyemax Mono lens implanted?
How is the Eyemax Mono lens different from other intraocular lenses? First of all:
– it improves both the distance vision and the ability to read – in most Patients the distance vision is improved of about 3 lines, and the close vision is improved of more that 2 lines on the test board. In some, the improvement reaches up to 5 lines (might be different for each Patient),
– after the Eyemax Mono lens implantation the Patients are able to read 25% faster than before the surgery,
– although the lens does not fully restore vision and does not stop the progression of the disease, it minimizes the effects of increased retinal damage and maintains the best vision your macula can achieve,
– after having the lens implanted the Patients feel more confident about their vison. Generally speaking: the image quality improvement in healthy parts of the retina occures.
The Eyemax Mono lens and the eyeglasses
The image magnifing effect of the Eyemax Mono lens can be escalated by using moderate-intensity glasses. The Patients with Eyemax Mono lens implanted generally need two pairs of glasses: one for working from close distance and the other for seeing from far.
