Cataract surgery

Modern cataract surgery is a safe and painless process, with a relatively fast recovery. Your surgeon selects the correct intraocular lenses to suit your eyes, which maximises the visual result that you can achieve.

Cataracts develop as part of the ageing process in most people, usually causing blurry vision and increased sensitivity to light. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly-performed procedures around the world today. A small incision is made, the defective lens is removed and is replaced with a new intraocular lens (IOL) to restore vision. Different IOLs are available, and your doctor will advise you of the best option for you depending on your individual requirements.

The procedure is usually performed as a day procedure under local anaesthesia, with minimal discomfort, a low chance of post-operative complications, fast healing time, and a quick return to normal activities.
