Cataract

Cataract surgery is one of the most common operations worldwide and today generally leads to the restoration of normal visual acuity. For this purpose, we exchange your clouded lens surgically for an artificial lens.

Cataracts are a primarily age-related clouding of the lens, which causes vision to steadily decrease until possible blindness. Cataract surgery can successfully eliminate these symptoms. The chances of recovery are very good.

For this purpose, we use all the possibilities of modern cataract surgery in our cataract centre and employ high-precision diagnostics and measuring methods as well as the latest surgical technology. The use of advanced artificial eye lenses as well as the many years of wide-ranging experience of our surgeons guarantee a gentle and safe treatment of our patients.

We pay particular attention to the critical weighing of the benefits and risks of an intervention in the light of possible accompanying eye diseases, the general state of health and the individual wishes and needs of our patients. Patients with congenital or infantile cataract, cataracts after injury or refractive corneal surgery or in combination with retinal, corneal or glaucoma surgery benefit in a special way from the special expertise of our eye clinic.

Our main treatment areas:

  • Preliminary examination involving all areas of our eye clinic, if necessary in cooperation with the retina, glaucoma, orthoptistic or eyelid clinic.
  • Precise laser and sonography-supported measurements for lens calculation
  • Use of special lenses under serious consideration of benefits and risks
  • Outpatient and inpatient cataract surgery or secondary lens implantation under local or general anesthesia
  • Postoperative monitoring of the healing process

Cataract Surgery

The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia. For patients with severe general diseases or diseases of the eye, which represent an increased risk of surgery, we also perform the operation as an in-patient.

This is done by making small incisions in the cornea to open the lens sheath and remove the clouded lens. We then implant the artificial lens into the lens sheath.

Please note that you are not allowed to drive your own car on this day. Ideally you should be picked up after the operation.

The modern treatment of cataract shows an extraordinarily high success rate. We take the time necessary for the best possible treatment for you. For early clarification and consultation we offer a special cataract consultation time.
