Calculation of the degree of the lens to be placed in the eye in cataract surgery is done with the IOL MASTER, which is the most sensitive device in this field.

The Only Treatment for Cataract is Surgical Method

It is not a disease that can be treated with medication or glasses. The cataract surgery method is the FAKO method, known as a laser, sutureless surgery. With the phaco method, the intraocular lens that has lost its transparency is melted by ultrasound and a foldable intraocular lens is placed in its place. Viscoelastic Gel, a special liquid, is used during cataract surgery. With this gel, it is ensured that the natural lens is separated from the other layers of the eye without damaging it. Cataract surgery is performed under operating room conditions and with special operating microscopes. Most of the time, it is performed with drop anesthesia, without blades, pain, and stitches, and the patient returns home the same day. The operation of one eye is completed in about 10 minutes.
