Cataract surgery from 820€ per eye in Almaty
Lens replacement surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, and the recovery time is 2 to 5 days under supervision in a medical facility. Within one to two weeks, the patient can fully return to normal life.
It may be necessary to change the lens to correct vision problems, even if it is completely clear. In particular, this applies to patients older than 40-45 years old with myopia or high farsightedness from 25-30 years old. Age. In these cases, phacoemulsification of the lens with implantation of a multifocal intraocular lens is considered the most appropriate treatment. Implantation of a toric multifocal intraocular lens can help solve the problem of astigmatism.
One of the most common eye diseases that can lead to decreased vision and even blindness is cataracts. It is manifested by clouding of the lens, which is responsible for the refraction of light rays on the retina.
This diagnosis used to sound like a death sentence, but thanks to innovative microsurgery, it can now be treated quickly and easily. The operation can be performed in one day, and the rehabilitation time is minimal.
About the procedure
The essence of the surgical method is to remove the cataract using an ultrasound machine and implant an artificial lens – an intraocular lens (IOL). In our clinics, this intervention is always performed by the most advanced method using modern sutureless technology – phacoemulsification, or in other words, ultrasonic surgery. Depending on the indications, it is possible to perform the operation on both eyes simultaneously (simultaneously – sequentially binocularly).
Cataract removal takes an average of 10 to 15 minutes. In this case, the surgeon manages not only to remove the lens that has lost its transparency, but also to replace it with an artificial lens, which allows you to restore the optical balance of the visual functions of the eye.
At the same time, it should be noted that modern technologies make it possible to rehabilitate the patient without waiting for the (sometimes mythical) “ripening” of the cataract. In the presence of even an initial cataract with partial clouding, the “native” lens is replaced with an intraocular or multifocal analogue or a special lens with an extended focus. This ensures the preservation of far and near vision and complete rehabilitation at all distances.
