cataract

When the lens in the eye becomes cloudy, it is called a cataract. It usually results from normal ageing of the lens. Treatment is not indicated in the early stages. However, when the cataract affects the vision, an operation to remove it and replace it with a clear plastic lens may be required.

Our clinic uses the IOL Master to calculate the power of the proposed lens implant. The IOL Master is one of the leading, most accurate machines. The surgery itself is performed in The Blackrock Clinic, The Hermitage Medical Clinic and The Bon Secours Hospitals usually under local anaesthesia as a day case.
