Treatment of cataract in the price IsraelRegardless of whether cataract congenital or acquired with age, injury or medical surgery - the only sure way to eliminate the disease, restoring the possibility of a clear vision of your eyes. Surgical procedure is virtually painless and does not cause difficulties with an experienced physician. Operation is performed in one day, it takes 20 minutes, after that you can stay a few hours under the supervision of experts, and then go home with the recommendations issued in the hands.

Due to the revolutionary development of modern surgical techniques is not necessary to wait until the cataract is "ripe." The operation is performed at any time, at any stage. There are several types of intervention:

  1. The classic method involves removal of a cataract through a vibrating needle via fluid flow - is phacoemulsification. Minor damage to the eyes heal quickly and do not require suturing. A small incision is made at the edge of the cornea, the membrane is retained for fixation of the implant in place. Mainly used acrylic and silicone implants that have reduced the risk of haze in the next 5 years. If turbidity develops, applies the laser treatment procedure, easily eliminating a drawback.
  2. Krioekstraktsiya - technology for application ultralow temperature primorazhivaniya lens metal tool body inputted physician. When extracapsular extraction at the place of penetration sutured.
  3. Laser cataract surgery, which is actively used Israeli clinic.

Use of laser in cataract surgery

Femtosecond laser technology have brought new levels of security, accuracy and predictability in cataract surgery. The femtosecond laser beam surgery replaces manual surgical instruments to perform cutting of the cornea, of the anterior capsulotomy, lens fragmentation and cataracts. laser correction method can reduce the risks of surgery, improved visual results.

The first step - cut the cornea. The traditional methods of the doctor uses a metal or diamond blade to create the incision in the area where the cornea meets the sclera. This access to the inner parts of the eye to break up and remove the cataract. Then IOL is implanted to replace the cloudy lens. Using a laser for the treatment of cataract in Israel, the surgeon creates a detailed plan corneal surgical incision with a precise 3-D image of the eye (optical coherence tomography). The goal - to get the scheme with a specific location of the section, the depth and length in all planes, after which the doctor performs an operation without difficulty.

The natural lens is surrounded by a very thin transparent capsule. In operation the front part of the capsule is removed - is anterior capsulotomy, giving access to the cataract. The remainder of the capsule should not be damaged, as it subsequently holds the implant. Beam replaces the traditional needle, which increases the accuracy of surgical intervention, to better align the IOLs that provides good visual results. In classical surgery for cataract crushing ultrasound is used. Its energy can lead to heat accumulation in the sectional burn tissue, to promote expression of astigmatism in the future. Laser softens cataract, carefully breaking into small fragments, reducing the risks of damaging the capsule. In addition, making the procedure safer, reducing the likelihood of certain complications.

Refraction with laser cost more as compared with conventional embodiments. On average, prices for cataract treatment in Israel are as follows:

  1. Examination by an ophthalmologist - 560 dollars.
