Cataract

When to operate cataract?

arrow1When the vision diminishes,
arrow1When the visual acuity and / or contrast sensitivity decreases,
arrow1If there is a difficulty in distance vision or reading,
arrow1When there is an inconvenience linked to the diffraction of light,
arrow1Before stopping activities that require some level of vision (driving, sports, leisure ...).

Who operates you?

arrow1It is the surgeon that you saw during the consultation.

Cataract surgical techniques


Other surgeries of the lens

Autres chirurgies du cristallin

- Severe Myopia (clear lens)
Myopia may range from-0.25 to -50.diopter

Severe myopia ranges from -10 to -50 diopters

The higher the degree of myopia, the more we observe anatomical changes (extension of the eyeball with major consequences on the internal structures of the eye (choroid, retina, vitreous) that are stretched and distorted).

Beyond a certain degree of myopia, the Excimer laser can no longer be used as it diminishes the corneal thickness.

The lens can be replaced and in this case there is no power limit since the power of a monofocal implant can be chosen. In some cases, the clear lens can be removed and a multifocal implant can be placed in the sac. It will allow a near and far distance vision.

Refractive implants

Implant

These implants are used in order to offset high refractive errors. Anterior chamber implants (clipped to the iris) or posterior chamber implants (between iris and lens) can be used.

Strabismus

Définition :A disorder in which the eyes diverge or converge.

Treatments: Eye realignment by vision therapy, occlusion in children, surgery.

Intervention : Moving the insertions of extraocular muscles or shortening of the muscles.

Note: When the rehabilitation methods are not sufficient.

Results: Very good if both eyes have a similar vision.

Organization:

arrow1Refractive balance,

arrow1Orthoptic checkup,

arrow1Anesthesia consultation,

arrow1Ambulatory surgery,

arrow1Usually an orbital local anesthesia

arrow1Intervention on one or both eye muscles at the same time if the deviation is significant. Further intervention is possible.

arrow1Refractive procedure can be done to rebalance the eye if the difference is significant.
