CANDIDATE ELIGIBILITY
Once you send your documentation and required tests, doctor will determine if you are an eligible candidate for this procedure. Ex.: The lens in your eye has become cloudy and makes difficult to see to do daily duties.

Cataract surgery

The purpose of the surgery is to replace your lens with a plastic lens in your eye.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROCEDURE
Once your pupil is enlarged, some anesthesic drops are used in the procedure. Your cataract will be removed and the surgeon will insert an artificial lens.
BENEFITS
  • Restore patient's vision

  • Achieve a useful vision

  • Improved colour vision and greater clarity vision.
ALTERNATIVES
Not performing the surgery may cause progressive vision loss as the cataract continues to develop. A mature cataract makes surgery difficult and increases the risks of complications. Inflamation or eye pressure can arise.
RISKS
Every procedure has its own risks. 95% of patients will have no complication during a procedure, but it is necessary to know about them. It is important to compare risks to potential benefits.

COMMONS RISKS (2-5 PATIENTS OUT OF 100)
  • Cornea inflammation and blurry vision
  • Rupture of the posterior capsule of the lens.
  • Bruising of eye
  • High pressure for two days.

LESS COMMONS RISKS (1-2 PATIENTS OUT OF 100)
  • Second operation due to impossibility to place lens
  • Bleeding in the eye
  • Increase in ocular tension
  • Alterations to the corneal transparencya requiring corneal transplant
  • Macular oedema
  • Pupil deformity
RARE RISKS (LESS THAN 1 PATIENT OUT OF 100)
  • Intraocular infections and loss of the eye 
  • Occlusion of the central retina
  • Lesion of the optical nerve
  • Ocular perforation
  • Toxic-allergic reaction
  • Cardiovasuclar and pulmonary depressuritation
  • Retinal detachment
POST-OPERATIVE CARE
The healing eye needs time to adjust and focus properly with the other eye. In most cases six weeks are necessary to heal and to be prescribed new glasses. The recovery also depends on personal conditions (macular degeneration, diabetes, glaucoma...).
Blurred vision after months or years is resolved with a painless cataract procedure in outpatients.
