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... Continua a leggere la testimonianzaecognize, 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.

It was a happy experience of my life, even if, through some difficulties! Excellent assistance during surgery and only minimal discomfort.

Getting rid of glasses worn for a lifetime is freedom…. is a new life!

I move a lot better in the workspaces, finally seeing well. Even after a "mountain" of work, when I get home my eyes are no more red and tired as they used to be before the operation.

Seeing well the stars and the moon is amazing! :-)

I 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... Continua a leggere la testimonianzay, 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.

From 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... Continua a leggere la testimonianzatood 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.
