Phacoemulsification is a surgical method used to remove a cataract.
In phacoemulsification, an ultrasonic oscillating probe is inserted into the eye. The probe breaks up the center of the lens. The fragments are suctioned from the eye at the same time. A small incision that often does not require sutures to close can be used since the cataract is removed in tiny pieces, a foldable intraocular lens implant, or IOL, is placed permanently inside to help focus light onto the retina. Vision returns quickly and one can resume normal activities within a short period of time.
Microincision cataract surgery: is currently the most advanced procedure and approved for the treatment ofcataracts. Through incisions less than 2 mm is the procedure of remosión of cataract phacoemulsificationmediente and later by the same micro-incisions to implant the intraocular lens that the patient requires. Bymicro-incision phacoemulsification does not require sutures to close surgical wounds, the visual recovery is almost immediate and the risks associated with surgery are greatly reduced.
Premium intraocular lenses
Currently we are implementing in our patients the latest technology available in intraocular lenses. Depending on the needs of each person can choose from several types of intraocular lenses such as aspheric lenses,toric lenses, multifocal lenses, multifocal toric lenses. With these new implants can be offered to eachindividual a highly predictable outcome, seeking independence for the use of glasses after surgery and anoptimal visual conditions can fit everyone.
