Cataract Surgery

Normally the eyes lens is clear allowing light rays to pass through and focus as they should on the retina. As a cataract forms, the lens gradually becomes cloudy. As light passes through this cloudy lens, it cannot focus clearly on the retina and objects look hazy or blurred.

Symptoms
A patient affected by cataract gets a gradual decrease in vision, because opacification of the lens prevents light from reaching the retina, at the back of the eye.

It can affect the ability to appreciate colours, changes of contrast, as well as day-to-day activities such as driving, reading, seeing through bright lights, and even identifying familiar faces.

It is the most common cause of blindness. Age is the most common factor, though other causes exist.
Cataract Surgery and Refractive Correction
Patients’ expectations follow technological progress.

It has become a common choice to take advantage of a cataract removal surgery to undergo a refractive correction procedure simultaneously and attain spectacle-free vision.
Cao Thang Eye Hospital’s specialists can suggest a broad range of Intraocular Lenses (IOL) models to patients, from basic to premium lenses.

Each patient gets a lens customised to perfectly fit their eye.
However, patients are informed that other eye pathologies may prevent them from achieving a restored vision.
