A cataract is a clouding of the lens
This is one of the most common eye diseases, the cause of which is clouding of the intraocular crystalline lens. The most common cause of cataracts is age-related metabolic disorders, trauma and some systemic diseases.
The cataract removal surgery at the Ophthalmic Laser Center is always performed using the most advanced seamless technology with a mini-incision. That is phacoemulsification or otherwise, ultrasonic microsurgery with simultaneous implantation of various types of intraocular lenses (IOL).
These surgeries are performed using a special machine (phacoemulsification device) of the latest generation – CENTURION (Alcon, USA).
Cataract removal is performed on average in 10 minutes, during which the surgeon manages not only to remove the lens, but also to replace it with an artificial lens (IOL), which allows you to restore the optical balance of the visual function of the eye. The parameters of each IOL, with its diopter and functional design, are always precisely calculated in advance based on the clinical situation and taking into account the wishes of each individual patient.
At the same time, it is important to note that modern technologies make it possible to rehabilitate a patient without waiting for the so-called. maturation of cataracts. The period of restoration of visual function is minimal, and full recovery of the eye after surgery and return to the usual rhythm of life is possible after 10-14 days.
