    Cataract surgery

    Cataracts are the most common surgically treatable eye disorder in older people. Modern ultrasound-assisted cataract microsurgery is a common and safe procedure. New technology has also vastly improved the outcomes and accuracy of surgery.

    Cataracts are the most common surgically treatable eye disorder in older people. With age, the lens inside the eye becomes clouded. The image forming inside the eye becomes less sharp, which results in poorer visual acuity. This gradual clouding of the lens is called a cataract. By the time the visual impairment caused by a cataract can be observed and measured, it is usually time for surgery. Cataracts occur everywhere in the world, and surgical treatments have been developed for a long time.

    Modern ultrasound-assisted cataract microsurgery is a common and safe procedure. During this procedure, the clouded natural lens is replaced with a clear acrylic intraocular lens (IOL). Modern technology also allows the individual assessment of any changes in eye refraction during cataract surgery, as well as any adjustment of these changes based on your wishes. Today, cataract surgery is one of the methods available for corrective refractive surgery (ocular refraction). New technology has also vastly improved the outcomes and accuracy of surgery.

    The advent of multifocal intraocular lenses (or IOLs) now allows patients to see close up without reading glasses. However, these multifocal IOLs are not suitable for everyone. We will arrange a separate pre-surgery assessment to discuss your wishes regarding close-up vision and the choice of IOL. You will also have an eye examination during the same visit. Achieving the best possible vision requires a preoperative examination by an experienced eye surgeon, consideration of your vision-related wishes, a modern cataract operation, and appropriate high-quality postoperative care.
