Surgical cataract treatment

The lens of the human eye is a transparent natural lens capable of instant focusing on an object thanks to which one can see everything clearly and distinctly. Cataract is an eye disease characterized by opacity of the lens.

Symptoms and causes of the eye cataract

One of the symptoms of the disease at the early stage is appearance of the «misted glass» (effect before the eyes (the lens becomes denser which makes the image fuzzy). At the next stage, it is already more difficult to distinguish features of persons, reading becomes difficult. The symptom of the last stage is following: the contours of objects are not visible, only light and color are perceived. Symptoms can also include worsening of night vision, double vision, spots and stripes.

What are the reasons and whether it is possible to eliminate the cataract?

Two main types are distinguished:
– Age-related cataract. The main reason is the normal physiological process of lens aging leading to its opacity. A healthy person can observe the first symptoms at the age of 45 or more.
– Complicated cataract. This is opacity of the lens caused by eye or systemic diseases. The causes may be: trauma, inflammatory diseases, heredity, diabetes mellitus, adverse ecology, lasting use of medications, etc.
Treatment and surgical operations for cataract extraction

Today, the cataract is called one of the most common diseases, and surgical operations for its elimination are among the most demanded ones.
Moreover, the only efficient way to treat this disease is the lens replacement operation.
At the «VIZIOBUD+» Clinic of Contemporary Ophthalmology, operations for eye cataract treatment and lens replacement belong to the main lines of surgical work. We also are concerned about keeping the prices for the services of our specialists at most accessible levels.

Surgical cataract treatment at the «VIZIOBUD» clinic is performed with the most up-to-date equipment using advanced technologies:

• by the method of FAKO-emulsification with implantation of a soft monofocal intraocular lens (artificial lens, gives the best results only for a certain distance);
• by the method of FAKO-emulsification with simultaneous elimination of astigmatism by implantation of the toric intraocular lens (monofocal lens with correction of astigmatism);
• by the method of FAKO-emulsification with implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens (a lens that allows to see perfectly both near and into the distance).

FACO emulsion — a method of removing the opaque lens using an ultrasound probe – is today the “Golden Standard” of cataract treatment.

At the current stage, the lens replacement operation takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes, does not require the patient to be anesthetized, is performed on an outpatient basis and is completely painless.
Prices for services at our clinic are most democratic, at the same time we provide for everything. The cost of operation includes the stay in the clinic in a comfortable postoperative surveillance ward with all facilities, the cost of the intraocular lens of the chosen category and all consumables, diagnostic services before and after treatment (during 1 month), postoperative control, medicinal support.

Many thanks! Our mother underwent surgical cataract treatments by the FACO-emulsification method with implantation of a soft monofocal intraocular lens. The operation was done superbly, no complications at all, my mother sees perfectly. And everything was done in a very short time, and before turning here, we were trying to do it during half a year, but saw just endless queues, wasting our time and nerves.
