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.
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.
Can I come and have a surgery performed straight away if I bring an abstract with all testing resylts from my eye doctor?
Unfortunately it is not possible to have a surgery basing on the diagnostics results from another medical institution. To be able to guarantee quality of the surgical treatment the Clinic has to be 100% sure of accuracy and objectiveness of the pre-treatment testing as well as of the data current validity. EXCIMER Clinic diagnostics equipment array allows to evaluate a patient’s visual system by over 100 parameters. Modern computer-assisted units register even the smallest deviations from a norm, they can detect disease at very early stage and guarantee precision of the diagnosis and provide complete and overall data on the patient’s visual system. All this combined assists in great accuracy in surgery parameters calculations and guarantees the best outcome possible.
