  • Testimonial - Garry - AT LISA Trifocal lens
    Wonderful cataract replacement surgery in Prague My eyesight had been deteriorating steadily for a couple of years and I had noticed much greater vision impairment in bright sunshine and night driving but it was a bit of a surprise when informed that in addition to my myopia , astigmatism and presbyopia I was developing cataracts in both eyes. Being only 55 at the time was a little disconcerting. Continue reading..

  • Testimonial - Carrie de Silva - Vision correction - Laser-assisted trifocal lens replacement
    Lens replacement with Praga Medica From being met at the airport (what a luxury it is to have a driver with one's name on a board rather than worrying about rogue taxis or public transport), through to the clinic appointments, and on to the operation itself and being given a teddy to hold (is that given to everyone or did I look unusually nervous?), my lens replacement experience with Praga Medica was absolutely excellent. A key part of my confidence in the organization was the email communications I had with Monika in the preceding months. Continue reading..

More about Cataract Surgery with Multifocal Lens

What are symptoms of a cataract?

Cataract means reduced transparency (opacity) and hardening of the eye lens that is normally clear. Most often we experience cataract after 60 years of age. Among the risk factors for cataract occurrence are mainly age, general diseases, diabetes, using some medicines on a long-term basis, smoking and eye injury.

How is cataract surgery done?

Cataract surgery with multifocal lenses is performed in local anaesthesia. The cloudy lens is painlessly crushed with ultrasound and removed through a microincision. Our experienced eye surgeon implants a new high quality Acrysof multifocal yellow lens.

How long does cataract surgery take?

The surgery takes place in an ambulatory (outpatient) setting. The duration is about 10 minutes. The patient can leave the eye clinic immediately after the surgery.  Next day is post-operative check up.

Both eyes cataract surgery takes only 5 days in Prague. A thorough preoperative examination precedes the cataract surgery and there is at least one post-operative check up after each eye surgery.

Which cataract lens is right for me?

The standard cataract surgery with IOL multifocal lens comes with a high quality Acrysof lens implant produced by Alcon, an American company. We stock lens implants of other manufacturers as well, most popular are Alcon and Zeiss. Monofocal and toric versions of cataract lenses are also available.

Why travelling abroad and avoid waiting times?

The cataract surgery with monofocal lens is usually provided within national schemes NHS, HSE cheap, ie. free of charge but long waiting times are to be expected. As multifocal lens implants are very expensive, not covered by the public insurance, many foreign patients opt to travel to Prague and abroad because the surgery is performed within weeks, the lenses are of highest quality for a fraction of the cost, no glasses are needed afterwards and each patient is treated as a VIP patient.

EU refunds

If you are coming from a EEA country, we will be glad to help with all documentation for your local health care authority or national health system (NHS, HSE etc.). The Czech Republic is a EEA member and operates European Directive on patients right in cross-border healthcare.
