What are the symptoms of cataracts?
The only treatment method for cataracts that cannot be treated with the use of glasses or drugs can be achieved by removing the lens that becomes cloudy by surgery and replacing it with a new lens (smart lens).
Cataract, which is the inevitable end of aging, is the blur in the lens of the eye. Cataracts, called curtains in folk language, are usually formed with the effect of aging. It is applied to the physician with complaints such as decrease in vision slowly, sensitivity to light, glare, double vision, difficulty reading, night vision deterioration, fading or yellowing in colors, frequent changes in glasses numbers.
How is the lens to be used for surgery decided?
Not all lenses used in cataract surgeries have the same properties. The artificial lens placed in the eye continues its existence in the eye throughout the life of the person. Since the choice of lenses before surgery is a decision that will affect your whole life, it is a situation that you should decide by considering the advice of your doctor.
How long does cataract surgery take?
Smart Lenses are specially designed to facilitate cataract surgery and ensure its short duration. The operation time is short compared to many lenses.
You can return to your business life 1 day after the end of cataract surgery and start doing your social activities.
Recently, the term “smart lens” has been used in the oral and written media. In ophthalmology, although we do not find it appropriate to name medical subjects, we will share some information here to clarify the issue. We think it is more correct to use the term ‘Trifocal Intraocular Lens’, which is called smart lens. Trifocal lenses called “Smart Lens” in our clinic have been used for a long time in suitable cases during cataract surgeries. As is known, intraocular lenses are divided into two groups as monofocal, that is, single-focus and multifocal, that is multi-focus. Those who wear single-focus lenses during cataract surgery may not use glasses for remote after surgery, but they use glasses for near reading. Multifocal lenses can be bifocal or trifocal.
Trifocal lenses, called ‘smart lenses’, are trifocal lenses, as the name suggests. After the operation, these people can read books without glasses, use computers and watch television. The most common trifocal lenses are; Zeiss Acrilisa Tri are Alcon Panoptix and Finevision lenses. Patients who will have cataract surgery decide which lens will be suitable based on some criteria of the eye. Our experienced doctors in our hospital successfully perform all types of cataract surgeries.
