Trifocal lens


The London Eye Hospital is now able to offer you the next generation of multifocal intraocular lenses (IOL’s) – the trifocal. This implant gives patients a better chance to enjoy clear vision at all distances with maintained contrast sensitivity and lower visual disturbance.

Trifocal lens implants

The older generation multifocal lenses offer clear distance and near vision, however they are least clear for intermediate vision and can result in glare and haloes especially with night driving. The trifocal implant has the advantage of offering clear intermediate as well as distance and near vision with minimal glare and haloes at night.

This lens enables patients to switch naturally between all distances. Studies have shown superior performance of the trifocal lenses for intermediate vision and overall image quality:

Visual Performance

Outstanding intermediate visual acuity

The trifocal implant significantly improves intermediate visual acuity enabling patients to feel more comfortable performing their intermediate distances activities.

High resolution under all light conditions

The trifocal implant produces images with high resolution for all distances under all light conditions. You will be able to switch back and forth between targets at different distances without the need to put on corrective glasses.

The unsurpassed intermediate vision of the trifocal lens

becomes evident when compared with the performance of older generation multifocal lenses.


Trifocal implants display far better intermediate visual performance, even under poor light conditions.

Even poor light conditions have only a minimal influence on the good functional vision achieved by trifocal lenses at all distances.

London Eye Hospital became the first to fit the revolutionary LEH Trifocal lens in the UK.
