I would like to use this opportunity to thank Evgeny Gurmizov, a wonderful doctor from Saint Petersburg. Not only is he a top level professional, he is also a sensitive human being with excellent bedside manners. You can trust him with things you treasure the most, with the health of your loved ones.

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.
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.
I have a cataract. I would like to know about cataract surgery: how long I will have to stay in hospital and how often I will have to come for check ups?
Nowadays well staffed and equipped ophthalmologic clinics carry out cataract surgeries in the most sparing way. Thanks to technology breakthroughs now it is possible to avoid the need for a patient to stay in a hospital, away from home and under stress. The modern cataract treatment procedure is called cataract phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation. The procedure itself takes 10 to 15 minutes only. The patient is getting anaesthesia eye drops (no need for general anaesthesia needed in this case, so no hazard for senior people with general health problems). All manipulations are performed through a micro-incision of 1.8 mm. The clouded crystalline lens is turned into emulsion by ultrasound and then aspirated out of the eye. To be replaced using a special probe with an intra-ocular lens. No suturing is necessary for the micro-incision as it is self-sealing. After a post-surgery check the patient may go home. Each patient is getting an individual check-up schedule. Post-surgery restrictions are just few and have to do mainly with extreme strains and hygienic procedures. No self-dependence impaired, one can lead normal way of life.
