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!
I plan a pregnancy soon. Should I go for a laser correction now (-5) or wait and have it after giving birth?
Laser correction does not affect pregnancy or giving birth at all. Thousands who had a correction performed at EXCIMER Clinics have already become mothers or plan pregnancies. Long-term research results based on dynamic observation of patients we can make a statement that after a laser correction one can experience pregnancy and giving birth without any concern about own health and the baby’s health. It is best to plan pregnancy 6 months after the correction.
However we have to mention that women having problems with eye retina may have problems when carrying or giving birth. In a few cases retinal conditions may become indications for a Caesarean. Therefore when planning a pregnancy it is advisable to see a retinologist for a consultation.
Can cataract be extracted using a laser?
Laser assisted cataract extraction is now possible, moreover it is a most advanced procedure up to date. Laser technologies have been used in ophthalmology for quite some time now, in laser vision correction in particular, and a real recent breakthrough is the use of Femto-second Lasers in cataract surgeries. This technique is available at EXCIMER Clinics in Moscow and St.Petersburg.
My mother had a nearsightedness correction 20 years ago and she says it was painful. Is it any better now?
A trail of negative speculations on vision correction has been there since the time when the only surgery was radial keratotomy. That procedure core was that special notches of up to 30% thickness were cut using a diamond knife on the cornea from pupil to periphery, and those cuts were adhering consequently, resulting in corneal surface change thus altering its refractive properties and improving vision. This was the great advantage. However there were a few drawbacks as well: the tools were far form micrometer accuracy so outcomes were pretty difficult to calculate and ensure. Healing of notches was not so fast and subject to individual regenerative abilities, often causing complications as well. Rehabilitation was slow and enforced a few limitations.
Excimer Laser introduction in ophthalmic surgery was a real breakthrough. Modern Laser vision correction surgery is performed as follows: a corneal flap of 90 to 130 micrometers thick is created and folded aside giving access to inner corneal layers; then the laser evaporates some corneal tissue, the flap is placed back and is self-fixed thanks to own collagen. There is no need for suturing as epithelium is restored along the flap border by itself. Patients start enjoy good vision already 1,5 to 2 hours after the correction.
Procedures keep advancing and the newest FemtoLASIK technique eliminates any mechanical contact. It is also known as «all–laser LASIK», since it is delivered assisted by two lasers: the Femtosecond laser creates corneal flap and Excimer laser corrects corneal shape. Thanks to the procedure being non-contact recovery is very fast with practically no unpleasant sensations possible.
