Cataract or Refractive Lens Exchange Surgery is a 2 step procedure.
In step1, cataract or natural lens is removed with phacoemulsification. Phaco technology allows us to dissect the lens through a small incision and remove it. Small incision heals faster and better.
In step2, surgeon implant an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Traditional IOLs are monofocal, which provides the recovery of distance and near vision again. However in most cases patients still need glasses to see clearly.
The feature of Premium intraocular lens is that it provides the patient’s independence from glasses. They do this by correcting the patient’s astigmatism and/or restoring near vision.
The vast majority of patients are adults over the age of 60. However, cataracts can be seen in all age groups, including newborn babies. Treatment of cataracts in all age groups is surgical.
Advanced state-of-the-art FAKO device, quality operating equipment, sterile-professional operating room, quality intraocular lens, experienced surgical team, and most importantly, a competent surgeon.
After the cataract is removed with Phaco, an artificial intraocular lens is placed into the eye to ensure a clear vision, and the surgery is terminated. There are 2 types of lenses: Monofocal intraocular lenses and Premium intraocular lenses. There are also many subtype of Premium lenses available today. Choosing which lens will work best for you takes experience.
Monofocal lenses provide clear distance vision. The patient has to use glasses to see up close. It does not have the ability to correct astigmatism.
Premium lenses have been put into practice recently. Lenses in this group not only provide clear distance vision, but also help near vision to a certain extent. Astigmatism can also be corrected with Toric lenses in this group.
One of the few guarantees in life is that, if we live long enough, we will get cataracts. Just like gray hair, cataracts are a natural part of aging.
However having cataracts does not mean resigning yourself to poor vision. Quite the contrary, cataract surgery can eliminate the annoyance of filmy, hazy vision and glare.
