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.
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.
Starting what age one can go for a laser correction?
The optimal age for Laser assisted eyesight correction is between 18 and 45. The correction is not recommended before 18 as the organism still grows till the age and this is true for the eye ball and consequently, refraction as well. After 45 doctors have to warn patients that laser correction cannot stop or prevent age related farsightedness (presbyopia).
