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.

Votazione: Eccellente
Tired of glasses and contact lenses, I met Dr. Badalà, who, after an accurate exam, suggested laser treatment to correct myopia and astigmatism. What a great choice!

Laser treatment was perfectly successful, fast and... Keep on reading this review painless. It was carried out in a surgical center with high standard equipment.

Dr. Badalà and his team had been very warm and welcoming, before and after the surgery. As fast as two days after surgery I went back to my everyday life with the only inconvenience of placing many eye drops many times a day for a few weeks.

Surgery was over two years ago and since then I’m enjoying great vision and freedom from glasses.
Thanks to Doctor Badalà for his competence and professionalism.
