Cataract and Glaucoma

Cataract can be linked to glaucoma; often, collyrium used to treat glaucoma, results in accelerating cataract formation.

In some cases (e.g. Narrow-angle glaucoma), cataract surgery can improve eye pressure and become fundamental to properly treat glaucoma. By replacing the natural lens with an artificial one, it is possible to make more room inside the eye and this improves the intraocular liquids dynamic and the eye pressure.

Cataract surgery can help widen the camerular angle and allow a better laser treatment performance for glaucoma, called SLT or selective laser trabeculoplasty.

In case of advanced glaucoma, cataract surgery can be teamed up with another surgery to decrease eye pressure, performing two surgeries at once.

It was a happy experience of my life, even if, through some difficulties! Excellent assistance during surgery and only minimal discomfort.

Getting rid of glasses worn for a lifetime is freedom…. is a new life!

It... Keep on reading this review is very important, for a radiologist like me, after a short adaptation I see much better pictures at my computer workstation. I move a lot better in the workspaces, finally seeing well. Even after a "mountain" of work, when I get home my eyes are no more red and tired as they used to be before the operation.

Seeing well the stars and the moon is amazing! :-)
