Ophthalmic surgeons at Eira Hospital

WHAT ARE CATARACTS AND HOW ARE THEY TREATED?

A cataract means that the eye’s lens has become cloudy or foggy and is a completely normal development in an ageing eye. Everyone develops cataracts sooner or later. The only known way to treat cataracts is to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens. The timing of cataract surgery is entirely dependent on what problems it causes. Surgery is indicated when cataracts impair vision to the extent that it affects everyday activities such as reading, watching TV, needlework, household chores or driving.

Cataract surgery is one of the commonest and safest procedures performed within the field of ophthalmic surgery. Cataract surgery involves the patient’s own lens being replaced with an artificial lens. The experiences ophthalmologists at Eira Hospital have been performing cataract surgery for over 15 years and we used the latest generation of lenses that have a high optical quality.

TYPICAL SYMPTOMS OF CATARACTS:

  • dazzling lights 
  • a sensation of having curtains in front of your eyes
  • double vision
  • colours fade 
  • the strength of your glasses changes
