Cataract Surgery (Adult)

  • Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS) Fishhook Technique Click here for Video
    The cataract is removed manually through a small, self-sealing incision using a specially designed hook and an intraocular lens implanted. The small incision heals fast, allowing quick visual recovery.
  • Phacoemulsification Click here for Video1 and Click here for Video2
    The cataract is fragmented and emulsified using ultrasonic vibrations and aspirated. This requires only a very small incision, through which a foldable intraocular lens is inserted. This is the most advanced technique of cataract removal and allows faster and safer healing and visual recovery.
  • Biometry (Intraocular lens power measurement)
  • Surgery: On the same or the day after admission
  • Hospital stay:Overnight after surgery
  • Local patients or those who want to go home are allowed to go immediately after surgery (they need to come next morning)
