Cataract Surgery Package at Ekol Hospitals in Izmir, Turkey
A cataract phenomenon occurs when, due to aging, yellow-brown pigment is deposited in the lens. This, combined with the disruption of the eye’s lens fiber, reduces the transmission of light, and can lead to vision problems. Think about it as constantly looking through a frosty, fogged-up window. Cataract develops slowly, and can disrupt routine daily activities like driving, reading or watching TV. Eyeglasses and stronger lights can help for a while, but the most effective solution is a cataract surgery.
Establishing if you have a cataract is done through a series of tests conducted by an expert doctor. The tests include:
Asking you to read an eye chart (visual acuity test). A visual acuity test uses an eye chart to measure how well you can read a series of letters. Your eyes are tested one at a time, while the other eye is covered. Using a chart or a viewing device with progressively smaller letters, your eye doctor determines if you have 20/20 vision or if your vision shows signs of impairment.
Using a light and magnification to examine your eye (slit-lamp examination). A slit lamp allows your eye doctor to see the structures at the front of your eye under magnification. The microscope is called a slit lamp because it uses an intense line of light, a slit, to illuminate your cornea, iris, lens, and the space between your iris and cornea. The slit allows your doctor to view these structures in small sections, which makes it easier to detect any tiny abnormalities.
Dilating your eyes (retinal examination). To prepare for a retinal examination, your eye doctor puts dilating drops in your eyes to open your pupils wide. This makes it easier to examine the back of your eyes (retina). Using a slit lamp or a special device called an ophthalmoscope, your eye doctor can examine your lens for signs of a cataract
Cataract surgical procedures
Cataract Surgery with Femtosecond Technology
Cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the world today, enabling millions of people to regain eyesight lost because of cataracts. Modern cataract surgery is safe, effective and highly predictable. And surgical tools and techniques are constantly evolving to make the procedure even better. The next major advance in cataract surgery may be the use of femtosecond lasers — like those used in all-laser LASIK — to perform some of the steps in the cataract procedure.
Laser Cataract Surgery Procedure
Using a laser for certain steps in cataract surgery has the potential to increase accuracy of the surgical procedure, decrease surgical time, decrease cataract surgery recovery time and improve visual results. Basically, here are the four steps of modern cataract surgery and how these steps may be modified in laser cataract surgery:
Benefits of Laser Cataract Surgery
Surgeons who are involved in laser cataract surgery say the new procedure improves the reliability, reproducibility and safety of cataract surgery.
