Cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is the principal cause of blindness in the world.
When symptoms begin to appear, you may be able to improve your vision for a while using new glasses, strong bifocals, magnification, appropriate lighting or other visual aids. Think about surgery when your cataracts have progressed enough to seriously impair your vision and affect your daily life. Many people consider poor vision an inevitable fact of aging, but cataract surgery is a simple, relatively painless procedure to regain vision.
Cataract surgery is very successful in restoring vision. Nine out of 10 people who have cataract surgery regain very good vision, somewhere between 20/20 and 20/40. During surgery, the surgeon will remove your clouded lens and replace it with a clear, foldable acrylic intraocular lens (IOL). New IOLs are being developed all the time to make the surgery less complicated for surgeons and the lenses more helpful to patients. Presbyopia-correcting IOLs potentially help you see at all distances, not just one.
1) Advanced technology in Cataract surgery
2) Specialized in prime lenses (correction of presbyiopia, astigmatism and high refractive errors)
Cataract Surgery is performed at the Eye Consultants Clinic in Dubai using advanced technology. It is a very reliable operation with minimum complications and a quick recovery rate.
Phacoemulsification is the new term for Cataract removal. It is done under either local or topical (only drops) anesthesia. The procedure will take approximately 15-20 minutes with IOL implantation.
Phacoemulsification is a sutureless procedure with a very quick recovery and most often patients will regain 20/25 or better vision without any glasses.
Prime IOLs is the new trend to correct all pre-existing refractive errors.
