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.
