Due to aging , when the natural lens of the eye loses its transparent nature and the opacity starts increasing, the most effective decision is to get rid of the cataract through surgery, like Cryoextraction is performed. In cataract surgery, the lens inside the eye that has started turning shady is removed and substituted with a mimicked lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) to restore clear vision. The system routinely is performed on an outpatient start and does not require an overnight stay in a center or other medical centers. Most present Cataract surgery incorporates the usage of a high-repeat ultrasound device that isolates the cloudy lens into little pieces, which are then delicately removed from the eye by suction.
• Laser Cataract Surgery : Cataract is the leading cause of vision loss in adults over the age of 55, and cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the United States. Advances in technology have made this procedure one of the safest and most effective surgeries available.
Femtosecond laser cataract surgery offers: Bladeless incision, Computer guided accuracy, Incomparable precision, Correction of astigmatism.
• Lens Implants: During cataract surgery, an intraocular lens (IOLs) is implanted to replace the natural lens of the eye which is removed with the cataract. Previously, these IOLs were mono-focal, only allowing clear vision at one distance, and glasses were used for other ranges of vision. Today, more than ever, it is important to be informed about your IOL options. Today’s options include multifocal IOLs, or lenses that allow more than one range of focus. These lenses allow many patients to function without glasses a majority of the time. Also, to compensate for pre-existing astigmatism , lenses are now available. While not every patient is a good candidate for these new lens types, many patients are, and can benefit from the new technology that is available. Examples: new technology IOL(NTIOL), Astigmatism correcting lens , Multifocal lens.
