A cataract occurs when the eye’s lens becomes cloudy. Cataract surgery restores clear natural vision and can eliminate the need for glasses at the same time. As we age or we develop certain diseases, the lens in our eye can become opaque. This reduces the amount of light entering the eye resulting in dull and reduced vision. Cataract surgery is the only method to restore vision in this instance. It is safe and effective.
Cataract surgery aims to restore vision by removing the cataract and implanting an artificial lens. You may then require spectacles for near or distance vision or both.
Refractive lens exchange is a vision correction procedure where a clear lens is removed and a special lens is implanted to correct distance and near vision simultaneously to provide spectacle independence.
Refractive Cataract Surgery combines both procedures to combine restoring clear vision with spectacle independence.
Cataract surgery combined with a premium lens implant can also result in spectacle freedom.
Types of Lenses
Multifocal lenses also eliminate or reduce the need for reading glasses (presbyopia). This treatment can ‘turn back the clock’ to restore youthful vision for close up, intermediate and distance vision. These lenses act very much like the natural lens of the eye before it stiffens as we age, offering you the full range of vision - near, intermediate and distance.

Distance Correction with
Standard Monofocal Lens
Monofocal lenses correct your vision for good distance vision only. Following the insertion of these lenses, reading glasses will be required regardless of your age, unless you opt for a slightly short-sighted lens in one eye (Monovision).

Enhanced Monofocal Lenses
The eye is purposefully treated with one eye for short sightedness and distance vision for the other using monofocal lenses. The dominant eye will have a lens for the distance and non-dominant eye will have a near lens implanted for reading and close work

Lenses for astigmatism. Toric lenses correct for astigmatism issues that arise from a different curvature of the cornea or lens in your eye (referred to as regular astigmatism, corneal astigmatism or lenticular astigmatism). Toric lenses are available for monofocal and multifocal treatments.
This procedure is where two lenses are implanted – the primary lens and a supplementary piggyback lens. A duet procedure would be chosen in cases of complex prescriptions or where a future adjustment may be required.
