Diagnosis of cataract

Cataract

A cataract is partial or complete turbidity of  the eye lens. The lens is an essential element of the optical system of the eye, responsible for  good vision from near and far. The lens is located inside the eye behind the iris and is involved in the formation of images on the retina (localized in the back of the eyeball). Turbidity  of the lens makes it difficult or even impossible to see.

Cataract consists in partial or total lens turbidity.

Loss of translucency of the lens is most often associated with age (senile cataract), but may also be traumatic, congenital, metabolic or drug-induced. The only way to “cure” cataract is surgical removal of the turbid  lens and replacing it with a new – artificial one. Modern medicine has made huge progress in the field of cataract surgery and now millions of people undergo this operation.

Treatment of cataract

Loss of translucency of the lens is most often associated with age (senile cataracts), but can also be traumatic, congenital, metabolic or drug-induced. The only way to “cure” cataract is surgical removal of the cloudy lens and replacing it with a new – artificial. Modern medicine has made huge progress in the field of cataract surgery and now millions of people undergo this operation.

This technique does not require suture, since the wound is sealed by itself under the influence of intraocular pressure of operated eye. The artificial lenses implanted in  Optomed are  one of the safest and most modern foldable lenses used in the world today. They are manufactured from a material created specifically for use in the human eye and have a positive long-term results, confirmed by numerous clinical research (low percentage of postoperative complications).

After phacoemulsification  and implantation of an artificial lens,   the patient recovers in a short time. On the operated eye ,  a dressing is placed , which is removed the next day during  follow-up examination.

Each patient, after consultation with a  doctor can decide on implanting the lens RESTORE made by Alcon, which has a diffractive system that  provides  vision for distance and near,  without the need for wearing additional glasses.
These lenses can be equipped with an extra  yellow filter,  which significantly reduces the risk of degenerative changes in the retina.

In addition, one  can use toric  lenses and bifocal ones  that allow compensation  of  the existing vision defects before surgery. They also make it possible to see from  distance and near , eliminating the need to wear glasses.

Glaucoma and cataracts

Glaucoma is a disease ,in which there is a dysfunction of aqueous fluid  outflow from the eye, thus increasing the fluid pressure in the eye. This contributes to the narrowing of the  field of vision, visual acuity reduction and damage of  the optic nerve.

In patients qualified  for cataract surgery, and with accompanying  glaucoma, it  is  possible to combine cataract surgery (phacoemulsification) with glaucoma surgery-called  trabeculectomy.

Such a procedure is called phacotrabeculectomy and involves the removal of cataract and the implantation of an artificial lens as well as  creating an additional  outflow  of excess liquid from the interior of the eye, under the conjunctiva. The same incision  is used , and the  formed fistula lowers intraocular pressure and allows to eliminate  anti-glaucoma drops.
