How does lifestyle cataract surgery work?

Cataract surgery has come a long way in the last 70 years, and the lifestyle cataract surgery we have today is a far cry from the invasive procedure it used to be. With the use of ultrasound and advanced implants, patients can enjoy a quick and safe recovery time, and return to their daily activities within just a few days.

But there are still some common questions and concerns that patients have when considering this procedure. Many wonder if their surgery will be done with a laser, and if the lens implant will last forever.

The laser development is a more recent development using femtosecond laser to perform the first part of the operation and gain access to the lens. The second part of the surgery is always carried out with ultrasound. The availability of laser femtosecond depends on specific centers and hospitals where you will have your treatment. While laser technology is available, the main part of the procedure is still done with ultrasound to remove the crystalline lens. And the lenses we use are designed to stay in the eye for life, with only a very rare need for replacement.

At your consultation, your individual circumstances and prognosis for vision will be thoroughly discussed, so you can make an informed decision about your treatment options. And if you’re still unsure, we’re here to help. Leave us your contact information, and we’ll send you a short guide on cataract surgery, explaining what happens during the procedure and how to avoid common mistakes when considering surgery.
