As part of the Ophthalmology Clinic, specialists qualify for ophthalmic procedures performed as part of the Ophthalmology Department.

Cataract is a pathological condition of the eye lens consisting in its complete or partial opacification, while the lens loses one of its important functions, i.e. translucency – which leads to deterioration or complete loss of vision.

Cataract surgery consists in removing the opaque own lens and implanting an artificial lens in its place. The procedure is performed using the microcutting phacoemulsification method (the latest generation Stellaris apparatus from the American company Bausch & Lomb), we use the best-class non-abrasive, aspherical and multifocal lenses.

The patient must consult one of our operators in order to qualify for cataract surgery. Before the operation, a visit is necessary, during which the selection of lenses is carried out. In addition, the patient must perform all the necessary tests and consult an anesthesiologist.

The dressing on the operated eye should remain until the first follow-up visit. After the first eye examination, eye drops will be prescribed and the date of the next follow-up visit scheduled. In the first 2-3 weeks, you should avoid physical exertion, as well as pressing and rubbing the operated eye.

The most important rule to keep in mind after cataract surgery is to lead a relaxed lifestyle. During the eye healing process, it is also worth paying attention to dusty places and avoid contact with infectious environments. It will also be necessary to use appropriate sunscreen glasses, which will protect the eye from damage from harmful radiation and blue light. Although the eye returns to full fitness fairly quickly, many doctors emphasize that it is worth consulting an ophthalmologist before driving.
