Is it possible to get rid of farsightedness and cataract in one surgery? Or are those different surgeries?
Cataract is quite often is accompanied by age-related hyperopia, especially in senior ages. With time crystalline lenses loose transparency, they get partly or completely clouded – and that is a cataract sign. Besides age-related changes affect elasticity and the ability of the crystalline lens to change its shape ensuring immediate focusing when changing glance from objects located near to others far away. Due to drop in crystalline lens ability to increase its flexion when focusing on objects located near, age-related hyperopia develops. EXCIMER Clinic offers the modern way to get rid of the two problems in one go. Surgery is the only way of cataract treatment. The core of the procedure is to replace the clouded crystalline lens with an artificial intraocular lens, very similar in its properties to the natural lens. A wide range of IOLs allows to get rid of cataract but also correct refraction abnormalities on top. In your case – to manage age-related hyperopia. Modern ophthalmology successfully uses new models of intra-ocular lenses, e.g. multifocal and accommodating, providing solution for two problems at once – hyperopia and cataract. The decision on feasibility and correction method is taken by the doctor based on comprehensive diagnostics testing results.
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.
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.
