What is Cataract?
Cataract is an increase in the opacity of the lens In your eye, resulting in blurring or haziness in vision. This condition is usually a result of ageing and affects one’s lifestyle and daily activities as sight deteriorates. It can be treated with Cataract Surgery.
Cataract Surgery Technology
The current treatment for cataract is to remove them by surgical means. Rapid advancements in current technology allow cataract operations to be done using very small wounds with early visual recovery, making it safe, fast and effective.
Using advanced diagnostics, our Medical Director Dr Jimmy Lim has a special interest in customizing the different lens fit for your refractive needs.
The empty membrane or “bag” of the cataract is always left intact in the eye, so that an artificial lens can be placed within it. This procedure is known as phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation. Most of the surgery is performed using a very small incision wound of less than 3mm in size.
Highly advanced technologies in the fluidics and phacodynamics used in the latest generation phacoemulsification machines make this very effective form of surgery even safer and more rapid.
