How premium cataract surgery can transform your life

Discover how revolutionary, advanced-technology lenses can give you visual freedom in moments
  • Cataract, like glaucoma, is an eye disease that mainly affects older people. Why it affects older people is not fully established, but hereditary factors and the aging of the body definitely have a connection with the disease.
  • You are over 56 years old.
  • You experience blurred and foggy vision. You may experience increasing difficulty seeing at night and colors appear dimmer. You can look worse when doing a hobby and/or not recognizing faces on the street. You have difficulty reading the newspaper and / or reading the text on TV. If this describes you, you may have cataracts.
  • We can help you see clearly again - and often at the same time remove your need to use glasses or contact lenses.
  • Cataracts are clouds that appear in the lens of the eye with age. Cataract is the medical term for cataracts.
  • During a cataract operation, instruments are entered into the eye through small incisions of about 2 mm and the lens nucleus is removed using ultrasound. The lens capsule itself remains in the eye. An artificial lens is then implanted, which rests in the bag that forms the lens capsule.

In our cataract surgery you can choose to implant lenses with an extended function to become more or less spectacle independent. With lenses financed by the region (county council), you will continue to be dependent on glasses.

In cataract surgery with extended function lenses, the risks are the same as in normal cataract surgery. Complications during the operation are rare. However, cataract surgery is a surgical procedure and complications such as capsule rupture, bleeding, inflammation, infection, swelling of any tissue and retinal detachment can occur. Most of these complications are rare and can be treated.

When trifocal lenses are implanted, for the first 3-4 months, you may experience night vision symptoms such as halos around light sources, glare phenomena and flashing lights. These symptoms subside fairly quickly in the first 3-4 months and then slowly from 4 months to 12 months after surgery as the brain gets used to and "picks up" these visual phenomena. Most people do not experience these night vision symptoms as a problem, especially after 12 months.

Most EDOF lenses produce few or no night vision symptoms.

There are several lenses to choose from in our range for implantation in your eye after we remove the cloudiness in your own lens. Depending on your needs and the condition of your eyes, e.g. what visual defect you have, whether you have other eye diseases, etc., we will discuss together which lens is most suitable for you.

Lens options:

Trifocal lenses: these lenses treat all vision defects: astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia and presbyopia. The goal is to become as spectacle-free as possible.This lens option requires that you have completely healthy eyes in addition to cataracts.

EDOF lenses: EDOF is an acronym for extended depth of focus. These lenses are the closest you can get to the natural dynamic accommodation of youth, where you move your gaze continuously and see everything clearly at all distances, even at close range.

We offer a range of different EDOF lenses. Depending on your needs and on several factors of your eye, we choose together the most suitable lens for you. With EDOF, the aim is to see without glasses at long and medium distances (about 40-60 cm). This means that you can usually manage without glasses in everyday life, even at closer distances. When you really need to do close-up work over a certain period of time, you will need reading glasses with a power of about +1 diopter. This lens choice does not require perfectly healthy eyes, as in the choice of trifocal lenses.

Before surgery:
  • Preliminary investigation
  • Fill in the form you received in the mail with the invitation. Please bring a copy of your medication list or enter the medications in the designated area on the form. Remember to bring the form to the eye clinic on the day of the preliminary investigation.
  • Before you are scheduled for cataract surgery, an ophthalmologist must have established the diagnosis of cataracts and found an indication for surgery.
  • After that, several measurements must be taken of the eyes, so that you know what strength you should have on the lens you implant in your particular eye.
Preparations at home before the day of surgery:
  • Shower the whole body and hair the day before the operation.
Patient flow on the day of surgery
  • You are welcomed by our friendly employees at the reception at Ocavi's eye clinic.
  • After you have registered at the reception, you will be assigned a seat in the waiting room outside the operating room.
  • A nurse will there drop the eye to be operated on with eye drops, so that the pupil dilates, which is necessary for the operation to be carried out. If necessary, you will receive sedative medication.
  • You may hang up your clothes and lock valuables in a lockable cabinet. There is a dressing room where you can put on a visiting gown for surgery.
  • When everything is ready, you will be picked up by the surgeon and escorted into the operating room.
  • You will be helped to sit down on the operating table, after which the backrest on the operating table is slowly and comfortably lowered, so that you can fall to rest at your own pace before lying on your back with your head back against the headrest.
  • The surgical nurse cleans and disinfects the area of ​​the skin around the eye. You get anesthetic drops in your eye. Next, an operating sheet with an opening for the eye is placed over you. There will be plenty of room for breathing from the nose and mouth. The operation begins and takes approximately 15 minutes.
After cataract surgery:
  • Before the cataract surgery, you will receive a prescription for prescribed eye drops, which you must drip into the operated eye. Please collect your eye drops before the operation. You get an appointment for a check-up after 1-3 weeks.

In addition to your vision being clear again after the removal of cloudiness in your natural lens, you will be able to enjoy being more independent of glasses if you chose an extended function lens - premium lens.

We’ve helped thousands of happy Swedes gain freedom with lens replacement

“Jag önskade att bli av med både glasögon och kontaktlinser därför att det kändes jobbigt och tröttande att behöva ta av och på glasögonen under hela dagen samt att byta mellan kontaktlinser och glasögon. Linsbytes operationen var en gåva till mig själv i samband med min pensionering. Nu efter linsbytes operationen känner jag mig extremt lycklig och resultatet blev bättre än förväntat. Det känns som ett mirakel! Jag ser nu bra på alla avstånd utan glasögon och jag hade inte trott att det kunde blir så här bra.”

P De Gourville

“ Jag valde att utföra linsbytet vid Ocavis Ögonklinik därför att jag tycker att de har ett hade ett mycket trevligt och professionellt bemötande som inger förtroende. Nu efter operationen känns det otroligt bra och jag är väldigt glad för att jag äntligen beslutade att utföra linsbytet efter att ha funderat i flera år. Nu har kontrastseendet förbättrats och jag ser färger mycket klarare jämfört med innan operationen. Jag blir imponerat varje gång jag är ute och går över hur mycket klarare jag ser omgivningen utan glasögon. Det är otroligt skönt att slippa att tänka på att ha med sig glasögonen hela tiden, speciellt med tanke på att jag tidigare alltid brukade förlägga de. Jag är mycket nöjd och glad över att jag valde att utföra min linsbytesoperation på Ocavis Ögonklinik.”

Owe Ödbrink

“Jag hade höga styrkor på mina glasögon innan operationen. Glasögonen var jättedyra och det var jobbigt att se sämre på alla håll då jag även hade gråstarr. Jag var rädd och ängslig inför min operation med implantation av trifokala linser av och jag valde Ocavis för min operation då alla på kliniken är jättesnälla och man märker att de är skickliga och proffsiga. Efter operationen hade jag en konstig känsla och det pirrade i hela kroppen på ett positivt sätt. Jag har haft glasögon i nästan 40 år och det känns otroligt att gå omkring att se så här klart utan glasögon på alla avstånd. Nu ser jag allt mycket klarare och det är fascinerande att titta på människor och den omgivande miljön nu när detaljer framkommer mycket klarare och jag inte behöver vara beroende av glasögon.”

R Thorrgren

“Innan linsbytesoperationen på Ocavis kände jag mig mycket begränsat på grund av problem med att se på nära håll vid läsning utan glasögon. Jag läser mycket och det är viktigt för mig att kunna se att läsa både på Ipad och Iphone. I mitt arbete som sjuksköterska delar jag ut mycket läkemedel och det är viktigt att kunna se bra. Redan samma dag efter operationen märkte jag att jag såg bättre utan glasögon på alla avstånd och det kändes oerhört tillfredsställande och roligt. Det känns nu väldigt skönt att slippa att hela tiden komma ihåg att ta med sig sin glasögon i vardagen för att kunna läsa. Hela upplevelsen på Ocavis var väldigt smidig och bra.”
