EDOF Lens Replacement

EDOF Lens: A Comprehensive Guide by Your Formedi Surgeon in Antalya, Turkey

In the picturesque city of Antalya, Turkey, nestled between the Taurus Mountains and the azure Mediterranean Sea, a revolution in eye care and vision correction is underway. The Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) lens is at the forefront of this revolution, offering a beacon of hope for those struggling with presbyopia and other age-related vision impairments. As a leading ophthalmologist with Formedi clinic in Antalya, I am excited to share insights about the EDOF lens, a transformative solution in eye care.

What is EDOF Lens?

The EDOF lens is a cutting-edge innovation designed to enhance vision by extending the range of clear focus. Unlike traditional lenses that offer a limited range of vision—near, intermediate, or distant—the EDOF lens is engineered to provide a continuous range of vision. This means you can see clearly at various distances without the need for multiple glasses or contact lenses. It's a game-changer for individuals who wish to reduce their dependency on visual aids.

How Does the EDOF Lens Surgery Work?

The procedure to implant an EDOF lens is straightforward and performed on an outpatient basis. It involves replacing the eye's natural lens with the EDOF lens. Using state-of-the-art technology, we make a small incision in the eye, through which the natural lens is gently removed and replaced with the EDOF lens. This lens works by creating a seamless transition between ranges of vision, allowing for clear sight at different distances.

EDOF Lens Eye Surgery Techniques

At formedi, we employ advanced surgical techniques to ensure the EDOF lens implantation is safe, precise, and tailored to each patient's unique needs. Utilizing the latest in ophthalmic technology, including femtosecond lasers and real-time optical coherence tomography, we achieve optimal results. These techniques allow for minimally invasive procedures, quicker recovery times, and significantly improved vision.

Pros and Cons of EDOF Intra-Ocular Lens Replacement Surgery


Extended Range of Vision: The EDOF lens offers a broader range of clear vision from near to distant, reducing the need for additional vision aids.

High Satisfaction: Patients often report high levels of satisfaction, enjoying the freedom from glasses and contact lenses.

Quick Recovery: The minimally invasive nature of the surgery allows for a faster recovery period, with many patients noticing improved vision almost immediately.


Adjustment Period: Some patients may experience a brief adjustment period as they get used to the new range of vision.

Halos and Glare: In rare cases, patients may notice halos or glare around lights at night. However, these symptoms typically diminish over time.

Cost: The cost of EDOF lenses can be higher than traditional lenses, but many find the investment worthwhile for the quality of life improvement.

How to Prepare for EDOF Lens Replacement Surgery

Preparing for EDOF lens surgery involves a few key steps. Firstly, a thorough consultation with your ophthalmologist at Formedi will ensure you're a suitable candidate. This includes a comprehensive eye examination and a discussion about your vision goals. It's also important to arrange for transportation post-surgery, as you'll be advised not to drive immediately afterward. Lastly, following pre-operative instructions, such as fasting and avoiding certain medications, will ensure a smooth procedure.
