Cataract

Cataract surgery

The only way to cure cataract is surgery. This surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. This is used to treat the clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye (cataract).
In the case you don’t have any problem besides lens, this surgery will help you improving your view ability.

We do this surgery with anesthetic eyedrop. It takes about 15 minutes to finish and no necessary to admission to the hospital. Please contact us to appoint specialty outpatient.

In general, phacoemulsification and aspiration procedure is used in these days cataract surgery. This method is quite safe way of cataract surgery because the operation wound is extremely small (2-3mm). You can see clearly after surgery and able to return to your job smoothly.
