Cataract Treatment

The aim of this department is to diagnose and treat cataracts, which cause a slowly progressive visual loss due to opacity of the lens.

Cataract treatment is only surgical, and it involves emptying the opaque content of the lens and then introducing an artificial intraocular lens with the suitable optical correction.

Biometry is performed to measure the intraocular lens that has to be implanted by ultrasounds biometry or the latest technology based on Optical Coherence Laser Biometry (IOL MASTER).

Thanks to latest generation of technology available, cataract surgery may be performed by micro incision (MICS), a minimally invasive surgery that avoids surgical astigmatism. Another used technology is the AQUALASE® system, which is based on the use of high pressure fluid instead of conventional ultrasound.

Customized surgical planning for each patient allows choosing the best surgical option like evaluating those patients who will benefit from the implant of a multifocal intraocular lens to correct also presbyopia.

With these special lenses patients are much more spectacle-independent to see in long distance and short distance.
