The solution to this physiological disorder that occurs after the age of 40 is Trifocal (3D) lenses, which have been applied more successfully in recent years. It shows the Far, Medium and Near distance seamlessly. These lenses, also known as smart lenses, are placed in the patient's eye on a daily basis with a needle-free, seamless closed operation that takes 10-15 minutes. Whatever defect there is in the patient's eye with regard to glasses, the smart lens corrects all refraction defects. For example, in the patient not only close zamIf the distance problem and astigmatism are accompanied at the same time, these trifocal smart lenses solve all the problems at once. These lenses, which can have hyphrophilic hydrophobic structures, have a very long lifespan and can solve the problem of vision related to glasses throughout a person's life. There is no need to change, and the patient gets rid of both near and far astigmatism with the correct measurement in one plan at one time. The patient can return to his private daily life the next day. It is always in the eye, it cannot be removed or worn, it does not cause discomfort, you can go in and out of any environment and you can do any sport, including swimming.

The final decision about which technique is suitable for the patient's eye is made by the specialist physician.
