The Aiken Ophthalmic Clinic have designed a new eye implant, to correct presbyopia. Presbyopia is a normal ageing condition of the lens in an eye. As the lens ages it hardens and loses the ability to refocus from distance to near. As a result of the loss of focus reading and computer screen vision becomes blurry and uncomfortable.
The Aiken Ophthalmic Clinic have created the first trifocal corneal inlay that is also fully transparent. The cornea is the front surface or window of the eye and is about half a milimeter thin. The central part of the cornea is called the stroma and various inplants have been designed for this part of the eye. A corneal implant may allow good eyesight to presbyopic people of objects located at several distances: far, intermediate (computer, mobile devices) and near.
