Cataract surgery the ideal time to invest in your vision
With modern Laser Refractive Cataract Surgery it is possible to live without glasses again. Imagine never having to search for your reading or bifocal glasses. Now that is an investment in life. Based on scientific literature 90% of individuals who have undergone the surgery do not require spectacles for distance, intermediate, or near vision. You will, however, still need them for certain tasks like prolonged reading.
Choosing lenses that offer spectacle independence after cataract surgery leads to even higher satisfaction rates. More than ninety-nine percent of multifocal lens patients in an FDA clinical study said they would choose the same lens again.
What are the latest advances in cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most highly perfected surgical procedures in medicine, with a more than 98% success rate. Most surgery-related problems can be treated successfully.
Cataract surgery is performed under a microscope and precision is key. In laser cataract surgery, an advanced femtosecond laser replaces the use of a blade. It also breaks up the lens and cataract for easy removal. Using a laser improves precision and accuracy, potentially reducing the risks of cataract surgery. This can be further enhanced with computer-assisted cataract surgery where assistance functions are projected directly into the surgeon’s surgical field.
In cataract surgery, planning is the key to success. The Vivior Monitor offers objective data on patients’ lifestyles to support the optimal selection of intraocular lenses or refractive surgery solutions. This assists your ophthalmologist to help you choose the best lens for you. Now you also have the option of seeing clearly without glasses again with multifocal and extended depth of field lenses. This takes cataract surgery to the next level by giving you a lens matched specifically to your lifestyle.
