What is a cataract?

Simply put, a cataract is “turbidity” lens in the eye. The lens is located just behind the iris. It works in such a way that captures the images viewed, focuses the light, colors and shapes of objects appearing in the retina. Retina also sends images to the brain. Lentils may harden so much that the images are not light on the retina, and therefore perceive sharp images disguised. This is the reason why glasses or contact lenses, which have helped in the reading or when looking into the distance, already do not. In 90% of turbidity is a natural process caused by aging. Cataract is not a “film“, which overlaps the eye. It does not diet, or lasers. The best way to treat cataract is removed cloudy lens and replace it with new.


As the operation is performed by a modern gray cloud?

First, the eye made a small incision size of approximately 2 mm. Once injected into the eye with special viscoelastic solution that protects the delicate structures of the eye from damage. Removing cloudy core is made in principle in two ways:
Small incision in the eye surgeon inserted an ultrasonic probe. The probe tip size ballpen cloudy broken lens and the same probe, all the particles cloudy squeeze the lens of the eye. This process is called faco.

Disorders of the eye refraction:

  1. Hypermetropie – hypermetropia, poor vision in the near and well into the distance. Light rays converge in the retina. The correction is used, joints, plus glass.
  2. Myopia – nearsightedness, poor distance vision and good vision in close. Light rays converge to the retina. The correction is used rozptylky, minus the glass.
  3. Astigmatism – this disorder is due to irregular corneal zakrivenia. This could be an accident, postoperative, or congenital. Correction is cylindrickými lenses to its axis and the dioptric value.
  4. Presbyopia – occurs after the 40th year when the eye is gradually able to focus on reading. Extend the reading distance. This is due to changes in the flexibility of the lens, which has not vyklenout as before. Corrected with lenses to close, or intraocular lenses.

Dry eye

A sense of dryness of eyes may involve different symptoms, which are the result of instability and lack of slzného film dampening eyes.
