A Look at the Implantable Progressive Trifocal Lenses Procedure
On the day of the procedure, things move pretty quickly. The process itself only takes approximately 10 to 12 minutes. Doctors will perform it with you under sedation and topical anesthesia. Your surgeon will make a tiny incision, remove the cataract, and insert the new artificial lens.
After receiving a lens implant, you can expect to experience some light sensitivity and eye discomfort. Doctors will prescribe eye drops to decrease inflammation and prevent infection, and your doctor will instruct you to wear an eye shield either all day and all night or only at night. Your vision will typically improve within the first several days after the procedure, but it will not fully stabilize for about two to four weeks.
