What is CATARACT?
A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil.
Cataracts are the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is the principal cause of blindness in the world.
Types of Cataract Surgeries
In cataract surgery, the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) to restore clear vision.
As a result, you may no longer need to wear glasses when pursuing your daily activities.
Trifocal IOLs allow for the treatment of pre-existing vision disorders, such as myopia or hyperopia. With a toric version of the trifocal lens, pre-existing astigmatism can be corrected as well.
Trifocal intraocular lenses are also effective for treating age-related vision changes such as presbyopia, which affects nearly everyone after the age of 40. When you treat your cataract with a trifocal IOL you can take care of your presbyopia at the same time.
In short, ideal candidates for trifocal lenses are patients who would like to be completely independent from glasses or contact lenses.
A Substantial Novelty in Cataract Surgery: Drop-free Cataract Surgery
Ophthalmology Clinic of Istanbul Cerrahi (Surgery) Hospital uses an innovation in cataract surgeries, which are gradually getting more comfortable as technology advances. Thanks to this method, patients no more need many drops, which are used for a month in postoperative period of cataract surgery. When Transzonular Intravitreal Injection, colloquially known as Dropless Cataract Surgery, is used, a mixture of long-acting antibiotic and cortisone is intraoperatively injected into eye, and patients can see more comfortably in the next day after surgery than before, even not using a drop. That method diminishes risk of infection and retinal enema in comparison with patients who use drops. It remarkably simplifies postoperative treatment procedures and also decreases likely side effects of eye drops.
Cataract Surgery Recovery
An uncomplicated cataract surgery typically lasts only about 15 minutes. But expect to be at our surgical centre for 90 minutes or longer, because extra time is needed to prepare you for surgery (dilating your pupil; administering preoperative medication) and for a brief post-operative evaluation and instructions about your cataract surgery recovery before you leave.
You must have someone drive you home after cataract surgery; do not attempt to drive until you have visited your eye doctor the day after surgery and he or she tests your vision and confirms that you are safe to drive.
You will be prescribed medicated eye drops to use several times each day for a few weeks after cataract surgery. You also must wear your protective eye shield while sleeping or napping for about a week after surgery. To protect your eyes from sunlight and other bright light as your eye recovers, you will be given a special pair of post-operative sunglasses.
Highest Success Rate of Europe in Cataract Operations
Multifocal intraocular lens is implanted in 90 percent of the people, who present to Istanbul Cerrahi (Surgery) Hospital Ophthalmology Clinic with complaint of cataract. This rate is a great success for both Europe and Turkey, because such lenses require particular experience in a field of specialty. Best lenses of the world are used in the clinic, along with a team of experts and equipment.
What do you want from cataract surgery?
For some people, simply replacing a cloudy lens with a clear implant and wearing glasses for some activities is perfect. For others, achieving the best possible vision without glasses after cataract surgery is the goal. Your vision needs and expectations can help you and your ophthalmologist decide the best surgical option for you.
