Piggy-Back Lens Exchange Expertise AVC was one of the first clinics in the UK to offer Piggy-Back Intraocular Lens Exchange treatment, a ground-breaking solution for patients with extreme long and short-sight and complex astigmatism.

PowerPoint Presentation:

As with ICL and CLE treatment, our surgeons have led the field in the research and development of this type of vision correction treatment and their reputation for outstanding success attracts patients from all over the world. Piggy-Back Lens treatment involves two different intraocular lenses being inserted into the eye, one inside the human lens capsule and one in front of it.

Suitability for Piggy-Back Lens Exchange Piggy-Back Lens Exchange is suitable for: - Complex prescriptions - Corneal abnormalities such as keratoconus - Multifocal intraocular lens after standard cataract treatment

FAQs What is this treatment used for? Piggy-back Lens Exchange treatment is used for complicated prescriptions where a single lens implant alone is not enough to correct vision. A tailor-made combination of implants is created in these cases. It is also used for patients with abnormal corneas.

PowerPoint Presentation:

How do I know if I need this? This would be determined at your initial consultation where you would undergo an extensive examination.

PowerPoint Presentation:

What is involved in the treatment procedure? The first implant replaces your natural lens as explained in the CLE FAQs. The second implant is then placed in the posterior sulcus (behind the coloured part of the eye). The second lens could be an ICL (Implantable Contact Lens) or IOL (Intraocular Lens).

PowerPoint Presentation:

Can Piggy-back Lenses be multifocal? Yes, this is possible depending on the nature of the lenses implanted.

Is this a common procedure? No, this is an extremely intricate procedure that requires exceptional surgical skill. AVC is fortunate to have world-renowned specialist surgeons on its medical team who are highly experienced in this field.
