Cataract surgery is one of the safest procedures in medicine. It involves a surgical intervention and, due to its frequency, it has become a routine procedure in eye clinics. There are three methods for cataract treatment, namely:
- ULTRASOUND SURGERY (phacoemulsification)
- CLASSIC SURGERY (extracapsular extraction)
- A COMBINATION of the two procedures
The Medić Jukić Eye Clinic uses a special machine for the phacoemulsification of the lens ALCON INFINITI in cataract surgery.
The eyes are prepared using only anaesthetic eye drops and the procedure is completely painless.
The surgical procedure includes a minimal incision (from 1.8 to 2.75 mm) for removing the clouded lens, i.e. cataract. This is performed using an ultrasonic probe and then the artificial, clear lens is implanted. Given that the incision is minimal, the wound heals quickly and there is no need for stitches. The entire procedure lasts from 10 to 15 minutes.
This method of treating eye conditions is available in only a few eye clinics in the region, and the Medić Jukić Eye Clinic is one of them.
