Cataract: symptoms, treatment and surgery
Op deze pagina
Cataract usually develops at a later age and is a consequence of the eye’s normal again process but it can also affect young people. In young children it is usually caused by a genetic disorder.
Focus Eye Clinic treats cataract with the latest femto-cataract laser technology. In addition, after your cataract surgery, the multifocal implantable lens will allow you to see clearly again without glasses, close up and at a distance.
Cataract or a clouding of the lens is the primary cause of visual impairment across the globe, usually in people over the age of 55. Without proper treatment this disease will ultimately lead to blindness.
The following symptoms may be an indication:
- Blurred vision (like looking through scratched or dirty glasses)
- Reduced vision
- Sometimes double vision
- Increased sensitivity to light
- Reduced colour perception (colours become faded or pale)
- Difficulty driving at night
Do you recognise any of these symptoms? Make an appointment for a check-up!
When to consider cataract surgery?
Cataract needs to be treated when visual acuity has reduced to such an extent that daily visual activities become difficult (e.g. driving, watching TV, reading...).
There are no drugs that can cure cataract. Glasses or extra lighting can temporarily improve matters, but visual acuity will slowly but surely diminish as cataract progresses.

Cataract treatment: step by step
Lens replacement can be performed in several ways. Phacoemulsification involves removing the existing lens by means of ultrasonic vibration via a micro-incision. This is the traditional manner.
Focus Eye Clinic has recently opted for the latest ‘Femto Cataract’ technique where surgery is performed by means of laser technology instead of blades. This makes the treatment even safer and more precise.
Risks associated with the Femto Cataract technique
The same complications can occur as in any intraocular surgery and can be treated appropriately if diagnosed in good time:
- Oedema of the central part of the retina
- Retinal detachment
- Increased intraocular pressure
Each one of these rare complications can be sorted by our team of experts.
