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.

  • Monofocal Intraocular Lenses
    For patients with cataracts in both eyes, a Monofocal Intraocular Lenses may provide the most benefit. A monofocal IOL is an intraocular lens with a fixed focus for one distance. A cataract doctor may select monofocal IOLs that are for near focus, for mid-distance focus, or for distant focus. Only one of these three can be selected and the focus will not change after surgery.Like your eye’s natural lens, an IOL focuses light that comes into your eye through the cornea and pupil onto the retina, the sensitive tissue at the back of the eye that relays images through the optic nerve to the brain. Most IOLs are made of a flexible, foldable material and are about one-third of the size of a dime. Like the lenses of prescription eyeglasses, your IOL will contain the appropriate prescription to give you the best vision possible.
  • Multifocal Intraocular Lenses
    Multifocal Intraocular lenses provide the closest sensation of having perfect vision no matter the focal length, however, they are not right for every patient. Certain limiting factors include the severity of the patient’s initial vision problem, individual lifestyle and vision correction needs.Designed to deliver excellent visual quality and acuity over a range of distances, Multifocal Intraocular Lenses could reduce your dependence on spectacles for activities such as:- Cooking, Cleaning and Playing Cards
    - Reading, Smart Phone or Tablet Use
    - Watching TV, Driving and Attending Sporting Events
    - Shopping, Golfing and More
  • Trifocal Intraocular Lenses
    Trifocal lenses are the most advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs) available today, providing clear vision for close, intermediate and far distances, without gaps in between. They are designed to enable a high degree of independence from glasses for patients leading an active life and wishing to do without visual aids.Trifocal lenses also provide comfortable intermediate vision, which is important for various daily activities, such as computer work.
    With trifocal lenses, you can perform a range of activities in everyday life without glasses. This includes daily tasks such as:- Reading
    - Cooking, cleaning, ironing
    - Working at the computer
    - Shopping
    - Watching TV
    - Driving
    - Working in the garden
    - Playing sport or doing exerciseThe biggest advantage of trifocal intraocular lenses is the possibility to see clearly at all distances without glasses.

    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.

  • Femto Operation for Cataract Surgery
    With laser-assisted cataract surgery, a camera/ultrasound imaging device is placed over your eye to map its surface and gather information about the lens. The device sends detailed information to a computer that programs the laser for the exact location, size and depth of the incisions. The surgeon uses the laser to make the corneal incision and the opening in the lens capsule. Energy from the laser may also be used to soften the cataract. Then the ultrasound probe used in traditional cataract surgery is used to break the lens into pieces and suction them out of the eye. The IOL is implanted. As with traditional cataract surgery, the corneal incision usually does not require stitches.

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.
