Laser Cataract Surgery is a recent innovation in the world of cataract surgery.
The most common kind of surgery is definitely Phacoemultification, that consists of sucking the cataract out via ultrasounds.
In order to remove the cataract, a special tool is used: a femtosecond laser.
Whichever the method, today cataract surgery is considered to be mini-invasive.
The whole surgery ends with no suture at all and the surgical wound is of about 2-3mm.
After the surgery, sight recovery is usually pretty quick (1 to 2 days).
Femtosecond laser is used for specific phases of the surgery. Cataract laser is often used together with ultrasounds to remove the lens. Laser cataract surgery can make surgery easier in specific circumstances but it cannot be used when the cataract is in an advanced state or when the cornea becomes opaque and seems to extend the duration of the process.
Phacoemulsification surgery is considered today to be the gold standard of cataract surgery; further developments on lasers for cataract treatment will most likely spread this methodology.
To this day, more than 90% of cataract surgery are performed via phacoemulsification. Laser is also used in case of secondary cataract: the only difference being that in this case, yag laser is required.
After the cataract surgery, laser can be used to mold customizable or high tech intraocular lenses. In this scenario, laser light molds the intraocular lens to meet the visual needs of the patient and correct residual sight flaws.

Problem: Astigmatism, Cataract, MyopiaSolution: Astigmatic keratotomy, Cataract surgeryFrom fear to joy! I was diagnosed with cataract, but my greatest wish was to correct also my high myopia and fear had always stuck me.
After a careful research I set up a visit with Dr. Badala and I immediately unders... Keep on reading this reviewtood that I was on the right way. With just one surgery, the doctor freed me from cataracts, myopia (more than 20 diopters) and astigmatism(about 3 diopters).
Surgery took place in the operating room, I had the shirts, the electrodes for monitoring and, given that I chose local anesthesia to do not see or hear anything, they give me a shot near the eye.
Only six hours after surgery, removing the bandage, I had already noticed an improvement in eyesight. Just to be safer, I slept with a protective shell. The next day I did the check-up and, seeing that it was successful, I set up the other eye surgery 10 days later.
Just one month from both surgeries I had the great joy of being able to see 10/10 for the first time in my life. My life has completely changed and I am very satisfied with the result.
