I had both lens replaced in March 2018 and I cannot believe what a difference it has made.
I had the trifocal lens because I wore contact lens but still needed glasses for reading and varifocal glasses when I wasn't wearing my contact lens, now I don't need any of these which is lovely, it's great not having to take glasses everywhere and I can read tiny writing which is unbelievable. I am still getting halo's around lights but that is to be expected as it was only 3 weeks ago I had them done. I took the package and everyone involved looked after me .l also met lots of other people and we all agreed on how nice everyone was from the driver who picked us up from the airport right up the surgeon. I would recommend the Praga Medica to anyone.Janet Symons, East YorksMarch 25, 2018

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.
Femto-cataract surgery or laser assisted cataract with monofocal lenses is performed in local anesthesia. The cloudy lens is painlessly crushed using the LenSx laser and removed through a very small and precise microincision. Our experienced cataract surgeon implants a new high quality Acrysof monofocal yellow lens.
Many of the steps of the surgery are done before the incision is made in comparison to the standard method. The natural lens is crushed using a femtosecond laser instead of ultrasound. Less energy and less intrusion into the eye results in quicker recovery. The incision is made by the femtosecond laser hence increasing precision of the cut.
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 femto-cataract surgery takes only 5 days in Prague. A thorough preoperative examination precedes the femto-cataract surgery and there is at least one post-operative check up after each eye surgery.
The standard femto-cataract surgery with IOL monofocal 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. Multifocal and toric versions of cataract lenses are also available.
