Bausch & Lomb is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of intraocular lenses, contact lenses, and other equipment for ophthalmologists. It is a high recognition of good work for the Gemini Eye Clinic team that the new EDOF lens with an extended LuxSmart depth of field was implanted here as the first healthcare facility worldwide. The world primacy in this field belongs to the chief eye surgeon Pavel Stodůlka. He implanted an intraocular lens in a patient during cataract surgery. The procedure went smoothly and without any complications.
EDOF lenses have been recently gaining ground more and more. They can be used both in cataract surgery and in the removal of diopters by replacing the intraocular lens, also known as an RLE procedure. It offers patients sharp vision even at intermediate distances. This corresponds to approximately 60 centimeters, i.e., the computer screen, telephone, or dashboard distance. The modern way of life increases the importance of sharp vision at intermediate distances. EDOF represents the cutting edge of the most modern eye lens production technology. Unlike conventional monofocal intraocular lenses, they have a greater depth of field. The patient thus sees well not only at near or far but also at intermediate distance. Lenses are a suitable alternative, especially for people working on a computer and professional drivers.
