The new Premium lenses are the best solution to correct cataracts, a common disease in patients over 65 years by a surgical, simple and with the latest technology intervention. The most common type of cataract is related to age, affecting more than 50% of the population above 65 years.
What causes cataracts
Under normal conditions the light rays pass through the transparent lens to form a sharp image on the retina. Cataract is the clouding of the lens, causing a decrease in vision.
Currently, the only treatment Ophthalmology is surgery. In modern cataract surgery, lens choice is as important as performing the surgery itself, and it is what will make a difference in the outcome.
Thanks to new surgical techniques and the development of calls Premium Lenses (toric lenses, multifocal lenses ...), the goal of surgery techniques today is not only the eye recovers transparency and vision, if not the patient, after surgery, relies as little as possible glasses for their daily activities.
The technique of choice today is phacoemulsification, which combines the use of ultrasonic energy and aspiration for the removal of catarata.El using the latest software for controlling the ultrasound energy and fluid, allows a clean and rapid surgery, accelerating recovery from visual procedure.
The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under topical anesthesia (drops), and has a duration of 10 minutes. It is done through micro-incisions 2-3 mm, which then do not require sutures, allowing you to quickly return to everyday life.
