Modern cataract treatments with greater benefits
What is a cataract?
The natural lens of the human eye causes light to be focused and produces clear, sharp images.
result in the clouding of the natural lens of the eye causing blurred vision.
Micro-incisions and phaco-emulsification is an advanced procedure wherein the surgeon removes the cataract
through a small incision.
Microincision Phacoemulsification is a procedure in which the cataract
is removed with a sub 2 mm incision
and a foldable micronicision lens is implanted though it.
Phaco-emulsification uses ultra-sound vibrations to break apart and fragment the cataract into tiny pieces. A suctioning device then removes the cataract
, leaving the rear portion of the lens capsule intact. The incisions used in the procedure are less than 2 mm.
This can be a stitch-less procedure or might involve a few stitches depending on the type of lenses implanted. Foldable lenses can be inserted without a stitch whereas non-foldable lenses might require several stitches.
All healthy patients with cataracts
that impair vision are candidates for micro-incision and phaco-emulsification implants.
- Quicker recovery of vision.
- The minimal trauma associated with this procedure reduces the probability of infection.
- Quick return to normality.
- Quick healing.
- High-safety profile as compared to alternative treatments for cataracts.
