Cataract
TREATMENT
The only proven treatment for a cataract is surgery. It should be considered when the cataracts have progressed enough to impair vision and affect daily life. It is now common for people to have their cataract treated at an early stage.
Phacoemulsification
The most common procedure used for removing cataracts is called phacoemulsification. In this procedure, a small incision of less than 3mm is made at the side of the cornea. The front capsule of the natural lens is opened and removed. The back capsule of the natural lens remains intact. The cataract is not extracted whole but is broken up using high-frequency ultrasound and carefully suction out. After the cataract is extracted, a clear artificial lens, known as intraocular lens (IOL) is inserted, supported by the back capsule. The incision made is self-sealing and requires no stitches.
We use the most advanced phacoemulsification ultrasound system for cataract surgeries.
Alcon INFINITI® Vision System with OZil®
  • safe and effective in emulsifying all types of cataract densities
  • more consistent, reproducible results
  • greater stability
  • smaller incision
  • lesser complications due to Oscillating ultrasound probe that reduces energy dramatically
  • lesser damage to the eye
LenSx® Laser System
The LenSx® Laser was the first femtosecond laser cleared for use in cataract surgery. This innovation allows eye surgeons to perform some of the most challenging steps in cataract surgery with the precision of advanced laser technology.
  • Deliver the precision of a femtosecond laser to Refractive Cataract Surgery
  • Evolution of true image-guided intraocular surgery
  • More digitized, predictable approach to lens replacement surgery
  • Allows for improved accuracy, predictability, reliability and reproducibility compared to traditional refractive cataract surgery
