    What is a cataract surgery?

    The World Health Organization has recognized cataract phacoemulsification as the most reliable and effective method for the complete restoration of vision. Clinic them. Svyatoslav Fyodorov performs cataract surgery using innovative techniques and techniques of eye surgery.


    A cataract is a frequent age-related disease associated with clouding of the lens of the eye, whereby the vision deteriorates sharply and the probability of its complete or partial loss reaches a maximum.

    Medicine - folk and traditional - puts forward many methods of prevention, treatment of cataracts, however, vitamins, biological additives and physiological procedures will not return the lens transparency. The only correct way for a patient who has experienced this problem will be surgery.

    Modern medical practice offers several options for restoring vision:

    1. Extracapsular extraction, as a result of which the lens masses are removed, preserving the posterior capsule, which serves as a barrier between the anterior part of the eye and the vitreous body.
    2. Intracapsular extraction, involving the use of cryoextractor - the lens and the capsule are frozen to the tip of the device and removed.
    3. Phacoemulsification - a clouded lens is extracted by using a phacoemulsifier: the tip of the device is inserted into a small incision, crushing the lens with ultrasonic vibrations, which turns its substance into an emulsion, aspiration of which is provided by special tubes.

    Proper and timely surgical treatment of cataracts becomes the key to maintaining good vision. Ignoring lens opacities leads to a number of complications: the development of secondary glaucoma, disruption of the functioning of the internal structures of the eye, the death of the optic nerve fibers.
