Cataract surgery

Cataract is a condition that is treated exclusively with surgery in which the opacified crystalline lens of the eye is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (intraocular lens).

The method used, with few exceptions, is called phacoemulsification. This is a slightly traumatic technique for the eye, in which through a small incision (2-3mm) the cloudy crystalline lens is crushed using ultrasound and aspirated. The intraocular lens is also inserted from this incision.

Laser myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia

The technology of correcting myopia, astigmatism and hyperopia with the use of laser in the cornea has been developed a lot, it has become very safe and is a very good alternative to the use of glasses or contact lenses. There are 2 main methods of laser treatment, Lasik and PRK. Both methods are safe, painless during the operation (anesthetic drops are used) and last 10-20 minutes for both eyes.

Diagnosis-monitoring of Glaucoma

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases classified as optic neuropathies and is the second leading cause of blindness in developed countries. A common feature of glaucoma is the progressive damage of the optic nerve. This damage is usually due to the gradual increase in pressure inside the eye (intraocular pressure), which damages the optic nerve causing irreversible damage to the retina and causing gradual loss of vision. The treatment of glaucoma is mainly aimed at reducing the pressure in the eye and can be done with medication, with the use of Laser or with surgery.

Macular degeneration - intravitreal injections

Diseases such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and to a lesser extent other vascular and inflammatory eye diseases are the most common indications for intravitreal injections. Intravitreal injection is a microsurgery, which involves injecting into the eye (vitreous) a substance, which depending on the underlying condition may be either cortisone or a new class of drugs, anti-angiogenic drugs.
