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.

I have cataract and glaucoma. Which one to be treated first?
EXCIMER Clinic offers in cases when cataract is accompanied by glaucoma to have a single combined two-stage surgery. The first one is non-penetrating deep sclerectomy to treat glaucoma, it is followed by ultrasonic phacoemulsification with an intraocular lens implantation to treat cataract. So the modern technology allows to manage two diseases simultaneously: cataract and glaucoma. Such surgeries are performed without admission to a hospital, under local eyedrop anaesthesia, and take 15 to 20 minutes only. Patients can very soon come back to their daily life after the surgery.
