WHAT IS CATARACT?



CLOUDING OF THE LENS



YOU ONLY HAVE  2 EYES:

CHECK YEARLY !

SEE CLEARLY  !

ARE THERE...
DISCREET MAGNIFIERS?



YES,  SUCH AS EASYPOCKET


LENSES....
SO EASY !





SHOW YOUR EYES ...
WITH LENSES !!!


HOLIDAYS = LENSES

lens fixated on the iris
  • THE LENS IS CLIPPED ON THE IRIS. THE EYE TOLERATES IT VERY WELL

  • WITH THIS LENS MYOPIC CORRECTIONS (MORE THAN -10) CAN BE CORRECTED - HYPEROPIA ALSO CAN BE SOLVED

  • RESULTS: HIGH CORRECTIONS CAN BE SOLVED

HARD CONTACTLENS IN THE EYE


INTENDED FOR WHO?
 
Certain people with high eyecorrections can’t be helped with scratches (is only good for corrections between -1 and -4) or lasertreatment (good for corrections from -4 till
 -13) We think of high myopes (from -10) and  hypermetropes (over +3).
Untill recently, people can only be helped with a lens extraction,  but than they couldn’t read without glasses anymore.
Especially for people, who are younger than 40, this is a problem. Recently there exist a surgical solution that permits seeing far and near clearly without glasses. The solution is a hard contactlens in the eye, who get’s placed above your own lens. Your own lens don’t need to be removed, those can provide for reading.
 
 
WORKING METHOD
LOOK OF THE LENS         
 
One week in advance there are made two little holes in the iris with a YAG-laser, to prevent pressure rise.
On the day of surgery itself happens the following: immediatelly for the operation pupil dilation drops are applied. You get local anesthesia.
Trough a small incision a special lens get applied, the lens get pushed over your own lens, what is well tolerated.
The fixation is easily reversible, even after many years,so the lens can be changed when the strenght is’nt right anymore.
With one stich the wound is closed afterwards. The vision is normally very good the next day.
Sometimes the applied stich can drag, so the eye has less visibility.
This can be solved, by removing the stich after one week.
 

BENEFITS
REVERSIBLE AND CORRIGIBLE: when the strenght isn’t right or the lens is a little decentred – this is possible since one week after the first operation !

No cornea changes, who endanger the quality of the sight

Relatively simple technique (intraocular surgery)

ALMOST IMMEDIATELY STABILE STRENGHT
(a lot quicker than with scratches or laser)

Very predictable

to the naked eye it is an INVISIBLE change

No negative effects on long terms on the cornea (=forepart of the eye)

With 1 WEEK IN BETWEEN the other eye can be done
 
 
POSSIBLE DISADVANTAGES
Danger for PRESSURE RISE, immediately after surgery. This can be solved with a short cure of eyedrops an eventualy additional lasertreatment.

Chance for INTRAOCULAIR CONTAMINATION. With modern antibiotics this can be solved without any problem.

Accelerated CATARACT DEVELOPMENT: clouding of the own lens. This can be solved with a cataract operation
 
 
PRACTICAL ORGANISATION
1 WEEK IN ADVANCE there are made two little holes in the iris with a YAG-laser, to prevent pressure rise.

Under local anesthesia the lens is applied. There needs to be 0 to 3 stiches. The operation, that takes about 1/2 hour, is well tolerated. An eye is a very solid organ!

AFTER SURGERY a band aid will get applied and can be removed after a few hours.
From that moment the patient will be able to see with the operated eye. Against all expectations, the patient has little pain after surgery. The patient may go home the day of surgery.

A SHELL should be worn at night for two weaks after surgery, to protect the wound against pressure. 
Otherwise everything could be done (= stoop / lifting objects / wachting TV and reading).

AFTER ONE WEEK, the other eye get surgery.
Because there is a lot of difference between the eyes in “the week between both surgeries”, a contactlens get applied on the eye that hasn’t got surgery yet. Thus the sight for far is quite good without glasses, from the first operation.

A DEFINITIVE CORRECTION (if those would be needed !) can be prescribed three weeks after the last surgery. 
You don’t have to wear those glasses all the time, but according to your needs en for visual demanding tasks (TV - driving  - reading).
Only than can the definitive result be assessed. In 100 % of the cases is the deviation of the glasses significant better than before. In 85 % of the cases have a result between -1 and +1.

Is the deviation of the glasses larger than -1 of +1, than there can be considered to replace the lens or to fulfill another refractive procedure (like laser).
The sight is almost always as before.
Rarely the sight is disappointing because of other eye disorders, who are previously not been seen.
Sometimes there can occur problems during surgery, who can limit the result afterwards, although that’s rare (o.a contamination / unforseen problems while fixating the artificial lens).

Are you interested in these operation: as kan appointment in the hospital, because we can run all measurements that are needed fora n artificial lens
