Many thanks to Dr Kirill Pershin for excellent treatment! I chose him to consult because I heard a lot of good things about professional skills of Russian eye surgeons, especially Dr Pershin, who is one of the world’s most frequently operating surgeons! My cataract extraction was a great success; I regained 100% of my eyesight and experienced no complications during the recovery period! When I traveled to Moscow, I had time not only for treatment but also for enjoying the sights of this beautiful city. I even visited the Bolshoi Theater, because the surgery didn’t prevent me from enjoying my cultural experience!

I chose Dr Vladimir Kashnikov and the Novosibirsk Eye Center for my surgery. Dr Kashnikov is a great professional with almost forty years of hands-on experience. He is a marvelous surgeon and a true master of his craft. I think, if I chose to be operated by a surgeon of a comparable level at home, I would have had to pay much more! Luckily, I have relatives in Novosibirsk and I wanted to visit them for quite a long time, so I had a chance to meet my relatives and to be operated by a wonderful surgeon. I am extremely happy and wish to thank Dr Vladimir Kashnikov!
They say cataract is a disease of elderly people. Is this true? Why does it occur?
Cataract is an eye disease manifested by partial or complete opacification of crystalline lens, which is located between iris and vitreous body. In younger years the lens is transparent, elastic and can change its shape providing immediate focussing ensuring good eyesight for various distances.
With age biochemical composition of the crystalline lens is changing leading to opacification. No one is ensured against this disease, it may be said that if humans could live up to 120 to 150 years, everyone would experience a cataract.
There are many factors causing cataract development: genetic predisposition, metabolism disorders, diabetes mellitus, vitamin deficiency, UV irradiation, higher levels of nuclear radiation, bad ecology.
At what age it is advisable to bring a baby for the first check and how often it should be repeated?
The first eye check is normally performed at maternity hospital, the next one should be at one month of age. Next are a must checks at 6 month and 1 year. The main task for such checks is to timely detect any innate pathology (congenial cataract, retinal underdevelopment, high intraocular pressure) and carry out necessary treatment, if necessary. Besides it is important to evaluate if eye development corresponds to age norm. The first year of life is a period of intensive eye development and growth therefore visits to an ophthalmologist are as important as seeing other doctors. The doctor will advise on future examinations schedule. The general advice is to bring your kid to see an ophthalmologist at least once a year.
They say and write very often that young children should not watch TV. Please explain why?
Human eye is ideally designed to look at objects located at a distance, since this is a passive process, similar to sound perception. To look at objects nearby the child’s eye has to actuate an additional adaptive mechanism, the focusing apparatus. When young children spend long hours in front of TV their untrained eyes are subjected to excess strain, sending the distress signal to the brain. Trying to fix the problem the brain commands to elongate the eyeball to allow image focussing on the retina without extra muscle strain. As a result the eyeball is getting elongated causing the eye to become near-sighted, adjusting to the need to constantly look at short distances. And this is a continuous process, sclera (the tough eye protective membrane) becomes less strong, keeps stretching and myopia keeps progressing.
