Benefits:

  • a fast and marked improvement of visual acuity leading to an enhanced quality of life and improved daily functioning,
  • additional protection for the eyes thanks to yellow ultraviolet intraocular lenses (IOLs) implanted during cataract surgery,
  • possibility to eliminate the need for eyeglasses (in case of multifocal lens implants).

Indications

  Indications:
  • acquired or congenital cataracts,
  • markedly decreased visual acuity during everyday activities,
  • when the clouding of the lens makes it difficult to diagnose other diseases.
  Contraindications:
  • Patient’s poor general condition prevents local anaesthesia during surgery.

Frequently asked questions

Is cataract development always the same?

The occurrence and speed of cataract development always depends on the individual case and many factors can affect cataract formation. In one person cataracts may develop at a different speed in both eyes.

Can eye drops cure cataracts?

It is doubtful whether eye drops are an effective cure for cataracts– only surgery guarantees effective cataract removal.

Will I see clearly without glasses after cataract surgery?

It depends on the lens power – in case of monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) it will be necessary to wear glasses to correct vision. Multifocal IOLs can be used to solve the problem but they cannot be implanted in every case. Other eye diseases and general diseases which may affect visual acuity also need to be taken under consideration.

When will it be possible to determine the power of my new eyeglasses?

It is recommended to wait about 2 months after surgery to determine the power of new lenses. This will give sufficient time for the eyes to heal.

Is it possible to prevent cataract formation?

Age-related cataract formation cannot be prevented but there are a number of factors which speed up cataract formation such as exposure to UV or X-radiation. In case of diabetic patients it is possible to slow down cataract formation by controlling the blood glucose levels.

Types of intraocular lenses

Multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs)

Multifocal IOLs free patients from wearing corrective glasses after cataract surgery. They provide sharp near and distance vision.

  • Panoptix
  • AcrySof®ReSTOR

These lenses enable perfect near and distance vision. They are recommended for patients with presbyopia (age-related unclear vision of near objects) but without astigmatism.

  • AcrySof® ReSTOR® Toric

These lenses enable perfect near and distance vision. They are recommended for patients with presbyopia and astigmatism. Our doctors will select suitable lenses based on patient’s history and general health condition.

Monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs)

Monofocal IOLs enable sharp distance vision. Correction glasses will still be needed for reading or writing.

  • AcrySof®IQ Natural Monofocal IOLs

Their surface is the most similar to that of the natural lens. They provide a good quality of vision and good visual acuity.

  • AcrySof®Toric

These lenses are intended for astigmatic cataract patients who used to wear toric lenses in eyeglasses or toric contact lenses.

 

Eligibility for surgery:

Every patient willing to undergo a cataract removal procedure must be qualified for surgery. At a pre-operative appointment the power and type of intraocular lens implant will be selected.
At the pre-operative consultation patients are also required to present a certificate issued by their family doctor or an internal medicine specialist stating that they have been declared fit for surgery under anaesthesia.
This document is very important and failure to present it will make surgery impossible.

About the procedure:

  • The procedure only takes about 20 minutes.
  • Under local anaesthesia, the surgeon creates an opening in the lens capsule and carefully breaks up the blurred lens into smaller pieces; after the cataract is removed, the surgeon cleans up the posterior chamber and carefully inserts the intraocular lens implant which instantly conforms to the natural shape of the lens capsule.
  • Antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops are used after cataract surgery and a protective dressing is applied.
  • The cataract removal procedure can only be performed on one eye at a time – the other eye may be operated on after a few weeks.

After surgery:

Regardless of your IOL type, follow these basic rules after surgery:

  • do not touch or rub your eye,
  • strictly follow your doctor’s recommendations and use antibiotic eye drops,
  • sports should not be resumed until two weeks after cataract surgery,
  • protect the eye from contaminants and sunlight.

The first follow-up visit is typically scheduled for the day after surgery – you will receive detailed guidelines regarding postoperative eye care and follow-up visits.
