The Cataract

Cataract is the opacity of the crystalline lens, a lens inside our eye. As this lens becomes opaque, vision becomes increasingly blurry. When sight is no longer satisfactory for the needs that each of us has, then it is appropriate to proceed with cataract surgery.

Cataract surgery consists of removing this cloudy lens. This removal is performed using a very sophisticated ultrasound instrument that fragments the lens and sucks it, in some cases a sophisticated laser instrument called FemtoLaser is also used. At this point, an artificial lens is inserted in place of the removed lens. This artificial lens is also called an intraocular lens. Today there are many types of intraocular lenses, and the choice of the intraocular lens is fundamental to having a good result.
