Cataract and Presbyopia

Cataract usually affects elderly people and is often linked to presbyopia, that is the diminished ability to focus on near objects (it can be experienced, for example, while reading without glasses).

At any rate, choosing to go under a standard cataract surgery will lead to presbyopia: in other words, if you choose to see better far objects without glasses you’re going to need glasses anyway to be able to properly read or use the computer.

Today, thanks to the new intraocular bifocal, trifocal and multifocal lens, through cataract surgery, it is possible to correct presbyopia and properly see far and near object without glasses.

Votazione: Eccellente
I had big problems due to cataract and high myopia (-20) with astigmatism (-2.0) in both eyes. So, a year ago, I underwent the crystalline lens replacement surgery with intraocular lens implantation.

I often did not r... Keep on reading this reviewecognize, at short distance, the faces of people I met and even contact lenses could not improve my vision (I wore them all day but they gave me a considerable discomfort to the eyes).

Now I see very well without glasses. I need them only to read closely, bust just for small letters. I see 10/10 from distance and I easily drive at night.

Sure, before surgery, I had so much anxiety, but with a slight sedation I was able to collaborate, by staring at the light the Doctor suggested me to look during surgery. I was assisted well in all phases of the operation. After about ten minutes I got back to my feet and I immediately see well from the operated eye without glasses.

I underwent surgery in the right eye at first and, two days later, in the left eye. Before the complete recover, I observed a short period of rest, I carefully followed the treatment with eye drops and I wore a protective shell at night.

For me a new life has started: I do not have to wear those heavy glasses or annoying contact lenses, which need a careful maintenance. Sure it is not easy to stay awake and collaborate during surgery, but the sureness of being operated by experienced hands helps very much.
