Cataracts are corrected surgically.
The technique used to operate cataracts is called phacoemulsification of the lens and it is performed by means of small incisions that do not require stitches, as they are very small.
Currently, these incisions, the opening of the lens and its initial fragmentation, can be done in a conventional way or with femtosecond laser, for a greater precision.
All the intervention is performed under topical anaesthetic (drops) and is totally painless.
This technology enables the out-patient treatment and a fast recovery and reincorporation to the daily activities.
The replacement of the lens for an intraocular lens enables eliminating prior refractive defects such as myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism, and even presbyopia, by implanting multifocal lenses, that enable in their latest developments a great far, intermediate and close-up vision without the need to wear glasses.
