Refractive Phacoemulsification surgery can be used to correct serious defects of myopia (more than 10-20 diopters) and hypermetropia (more than 6-7 diopters) for patients that are more than 45 years old.
In this case, the natural lens, even if transparent, is substituted with an intraocular lens (artificial lens).
This surgery can be useful for patient that have already undergone laser but experienced myopia again.
If last generation lenses are used, it can also be possible to correct presbyopia together with astigmatism. The cost of this surgery may vary depending on the lens implanted.
Giovanna Maria Maringo, Palermo (Corleone)Votazione: EccellenteI underwent surgery for high myopia and astigmatism in both eyes on September, 19 and 20, 2013 and my quality of life has immediately improved.
Surgery began with a simple local anesthesia (eye drops). During surger... Keep on reading this reviewy, I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain and the procedure took about ten minutes. After surgery, I immediately started to see better and I went out from the operating room without any bandage.
The only inconvenience I mentioned, during the first days after surgery, was a slight and bearable burning and light sensitivity which disappeared in the following days.
After surgery I immediately went back to my everyday life, finally without the need for contact lenses or glasses.
I recommend this surgery with Dr. Federico Badalà and his professional, kind and passionate staff.
