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!
What are the procedures for cataract treatment? Are there any age restrictions?
At present the most effective, safe and sparing procedure for cataract treatment is ultrasonic phacoemulsification with intraocular lens implantation. EXCIMER Ophthalmologic Clinic offers this technique as a cataract treatment. The core of the technique is to emulsify the crystalline lens using ultrasound and to aspire it out of the eye. The lens is then replaced by a folded intraocular lens, which unfolds and secures itself inside the eye,
Unlike classic (old) methods, no suturing is required, as all procedures are performed through a micro-incision of only 1.8 mm, that seals itself after the surgery.
Of course the decision on the possibility to perform the intervention is taken individually for each patient based on comprehensive testing results. Use of local eye-drop anaesthesia excludes extra strain on cardio-vascular system and other organs. Therefore there are no age restrictions for such a surgery, for instance the oldest cataract patient who had a phacoemulsification surgery is 104!
I have had strabismus from my childhood, now I am 22. They say a surgery cannot restore vision, why to go for it then?
Strabismus treatment is a complex and long process, and it is best managed when started early. If the problem has not been attended in childhood, it may lead to functional vision acuity deterioration of the affected eye called amblyopia. With strabismus images seen by the eyes are very different, and the brain for the sake of visual chaos protection blocks images from the squinted eye. Vision on the eye can be lost forether. Modern conservative and surgical procedures allow to correct strabismus in most cases, however the final outcome forecast can be obtained only after a comprehensive vision testing. Binocular vision (when images from both eyes are merged by brain into integrated image) is restored mainly by apparatus assisted exercises, special training and complex vision stimulation. Indeed strabismus surgery is first of all a cosmetic procedure as in most cases it cannot restore binocular vision. But sometimes it is rather important for professional and private success.
Why earlier cataract was treated only when matured?
Recently intracapsular cataract extraction has been the only cataract treatment procedure. The procedure demanded crystalline lens extraction as a whole, therefore the lens had to be dens to be successfully removed altogether, so the cataract had to be mature. Moreover it would be extremely difficult to extract crystalline lenses at early cataract stages without assistance of modern microscopes as the lens is still rather transparent. Therefore patients had to live with dropping eyesight, sometimes up to almost a complete vision loss to wait for the necessary cataract maturity.
This was dangerous as well as progressing cataract may cause secondary glaucoma. This disease is very dangerous as it increases intra-ocular pressure possibly causing optic nerve atrophy and endangering vision ability ever.
Modern cataract surgery can manage the disease at any stage, so the treatment may be delivered imeately after the diagnosis is set.
