Cataract is a clouding of the eye lens, which leads to a vision worsening. Thanks to the modern medicine and advanced technologies the cataract surgery is nowadays one of the safest operations at all. The clouded lens can be replaced with an artificial one. This type of operation does not need any essential limitations on the patient’s side, before not even after the surgery. The procedure itself takes 10-15 minutes.
In the Eye Centre Prague we offer a range of premium and above-standard intraocular lenses for the high-quality vision. The basic description can be found in the “Intraocular lenses” section.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE OF THE EXAMINATION AND CATARACT SURGERY?
The preliminary examination takes about 1-2 hours. Your doctor thoroughly explores your eyes and eye fundus during the examination, also he explains the surgery procedure and suggests the best solution, which fits you. Bring along the glasses you normally wear and a list of medicines you take. Please note, that after the examination you will not be able to drive your car for several hours.
