The minimum age for eye laser surgery is 18-20.Astigmatism must have been stable for at least 2 years. If astigmatism conditions are not stable, myopia can come back after surgery, and a new treatment could become necessary.
When patients are 45 years old or more, other treatments are available to correct astigmatism, especially if linked to myopia, based upon lens substitution. This is the case of the so called Refractive Phacoemulsification surgery, consisting in substituting the original lens with an intraocular one that makes it possible to properly see far and near objects without glasses.
There are several kinds of intraocular lens that allow to correctly focus on near and far objects without having to rely on glasses (multifoca, bifocal, trifocal, High Tech, etc.), and Dr. Badalà uses all the most innovative lenses in Milan and Catania.
When patients are more than 60 years old, it is usually no longer convenient to perform astigmatism laser surgery, because there are often other eye conditions at play, like the opacity of the lens: such conditions could make myopia come back in a short period of time.The best choice is to go with Refractive Phacoemulsification surgery, consisting in substituing the natural lens with an intraocular one, able to correct myopia and astigmatism.
Depending on the kind of intraocular lens used to correct myopia, it may be or may not be necessary to rely on glasses to focus on near objects. Latest generation intraocular lens make it possible to focus on near and far objects without glasses (multifoca, bifocal, trifocal, High Tech, etc.); D. Badalà uses all the most innovative lenses available in Milan and Catania.
Today this is standard procedure for laser surgery.Where myopia is treated via the implant of phakic intraocular lenses or Refractive Phacoemulsification surgery, usually one eye is operated first, while the second one is treated a couple of days after.
There are cases when the ophthalmologist could decide to operate both eyes at the same time even in these circumstances, but it should be considered an exception. Dr. Badalà performed this surgeries at the same time in Milan.

Problem: CataractSolution: Cataract surgery with Multifocal IOL implant
I didn’t feel any discomfort or pain during surgery. One hour after surgery I started to see well and that same evening I could watch TV.
The day after the operation I went back to use my computer and, after a month... Keep on reading this review, I went back to play sports.
I recommend this surgery since I recovered 20/20 for distance and near and I will never have to wear glasses in the future.
