CATARACT SURGERY WITH FEMTOSECOND LASER


During  the surgery, the eye is numbed locally using an eye drop and a pain-free procedure is performed without using needles, blades or anesthesia. Also called bladeless cataract surgery, the laser technology named "Femtosecond Laser" allows completing the most important stages of the operation without using blades. This method reduces the risk of complications significantly. In cataract surgeries with Femtosecond Laser, patients are able to return to their homes after a 15-minute operation, recover in a very short time and immediately return to their daily routines.

While cataract surgery has advanced significantly today in terms of technology, some complications, though rare, may develop in the operations, which cannot be avoided. The doctor's experience is very important in avoiding such complications. Today, cataract treatment with laser is possible, which is a groundbreaking development in eye surgery.

At Dünyagöz Hospitals Group, cataract surgery with "Femtosecond Laser" technology offers a reliable and comfortable treatment both for the physician and the patient. The surgery not only eliminates the cataract problem but also offers an option to correct near- or far-sightedness by a special intraocular lens implantation.

Many stages of the cataract surgery, which are normally performed manually, are now computer-assisted thanks to the special imaging techniques provided by femtosecond laser.

In the treatment of cataract, bladeless cataract surgery with femtosecond laser minimizes the risk of complication and offers a high level of reliability and comfort to the patient during the operation; yet another advantage is that the position into which the artificial intraocular lens is implanted - the most important phase of the operation - is prepared in a perfect manner.

Thus, the new technology gives patients with refractive errors besides cataract such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism the option to reduce their dependency on using glasses for near and far vision thanks to the advanced intraocular lens implantation.
