Phacoemulsification of cataracts with implantation of an IOL of any complexity

The lens is a transparent convex avascular structure on both sides, a natural “lens” of the eye enclosed in a capsule, which is involved in the process of changing the shape of the lens. Thus, it provides focusing of the image we perceive. Any clouding of the lens is called a cataract and can lead to a decrease in visual acuity.

Types of Cataract

Cataracts are congenital and acquired. Congenital cataracts can be hereditary and occur due to intrauterine pathology. The most common cause of congenital cataracts in children are diseases of pregnant women: hypocalcemia, hypothyroidism, diabetes mellitus, toxoplasmosis, viral infections (rubella).

The most common form of acquired cataract is age-related cataract, usually occurring in people whose age is over 50 years.

Some systemic diseases contribute to the development of acquired cataracts: diabetes mellitus, myotonic dystrophy, atopic dermatitis, type II neurofibromatosis.

Various eye diseases (uveitis, glaucoma, eye injuries, retinal detachment, some hereditary retinal dystrophies) lead to the development of secondary cataract.

Diagnosis and treatment of cataracts

The determining tactics in the management of a patient with cataracts is visual acuity. The degree of maturity, cataract massiveness are determined by biomicroscopy. Sometimes, to obtain a more complete picture of the condition of the membranes of the eye with intense cataracts, an ultrasound examination of the eyeball is necessary. Our clinic has everything you need to make a diagnosis - eye cataract .

The only effective way to combat cataracts is through surgery. Given the characteristics of the development of the disease, the doctor and the patient decide on the need, timing and methods of treating cataracts .

In children, complications caused by cataracts are very important in assessing the severity of the disease: obscuration amblyopia (a violation of the formation of visual functions in a child due to the restriction of light entering the eye), nystagmus (involuntary movements of the eyeballs), strabismus.
