No knives, no stitches, no pain

Laser cataract surgery is appropriate for you, if you experience subjective symptoms such as vision deterioration or glare, in addition to a cataract diagnosis:

  • You want to see clearly again, to improve your quality of life.
  •  You want to benefit from the innovative laser technology:
    • computer-controlled highly precise incisions
    • use of special lenses (femto-intra-ocular lenses
    • correction of low-level astigmatism
  • You also want to correct other refractive errors (such as short-sightedness, far-sightedness, presbyopia)

Our experts will have to check in advance, whether your eyes fulfil the prerequisites for laser cataract surgery.

Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery

The latest development in modern cataract surgery is the femtosecond laser, which is used in femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS). The laser can cut tissue under computer-controlled guidance with high precision and predictability. This means that less energy is needed in the eye during the operation – which makes the procedure more gentle on the tissue. Furthermore, due to the exact incision, the intraocular lens can be implanted into the eye with a precise fit – this allows us to achieve perfect centring and an optimal fit of the lens. This ensures optimal function, especially with premium implants.

With the laser, corneal incisions, opening of the anterior lens capsule, fragmentation of the lens nucleus and astigmatism-reducing corneal incisions can be performed.

We have a device with state-of-the-art technology that uses low energy efficiently and thus gently.

Advantages:

  • High precision and predictability of the surgical steps performed with the laser.
  • Less energy is required during the operation in the eye, which is gentle on the tissue
  • Use of special lenses (femto- intraocular lenses) possible, which perfectly fit the eye
  • Laser incisions (arcuate incisions, Femto-AK): In the case of a corneal curvature of less than 1.5 diopters, we can make highly precise arcuate incisions with the laser, which immediately correct the astigmatism.
  • Implantation of both standard lenses and premium lenses is possible
  • Innovative technology
  • The surgery is performed in our own modern operating theatre – you can enjoy a familiar private environment and do not have to go to hospital.
  • Your vision improves steadily after the operation.
  • Healing is quick and usually without problems.

Disadvantages:

  • laser application is not possible for all patients (e.g., narrow pupil, corneal scars, certain anatomical conditions)
  • Higher surgery costs

The risk of cataract surgery using a highly precise femtosecond laser is comparable to purely manual cataract surgery and thus very low. You will be informed of these risks in detail before the surgery by our specialists. Possible complications may be:

During the operation:

  • Rarely, an incomplete laser incision occurs; this can be corrected by the surgeon.
  • Injury to a structure in the eye such as the cornea, iris or capsular bag.

After the operation:

  • Increased intraocular pressure
  • Inflammation in the eye
  • Displacement of the intraocular lens
  • Occasional increased sensitivity to light / glare
  • Shadow or light glare phenomena (dysphotopsia)
  • Swelling of the retina (macular oedema)
  • Opacification of the posterior capsule (posterior cataract)

Many of these undesirable side effects are temporary and easily treatable. If you have any questions or uncertainties, please talk to your specialist.

The decision on whether you want your cataracts treated or not is entirely yours and it is individual: while some people can cope with the clouding, it is a real source of stress for others. your specialist will assist you in the selection of the appropriate treatment method and the suitable lens. You can decide against surgery even after the initial examination.

  • There is no real alternative to cataract surgery. You cannot treat cataracts with anything other than a surgical procedure. If you do not have your cataracts removed, they will continue to cause your visual acuity and contrast sensitivity to decline gradually.
  • There are three types of cataract surgery: Standard, lifestyle and laser.
  • Standard cataract surgery – With Standard cataract surgery, we remove the cloudy lens and replace it with a monofocal lens with one focus point. You will need glasses to see clearly at other distances.
  • Lifestyle cataract surgery – Here too, the clouded lens is either removed manually or using a laser. Then a premium lens is implanted (multi-focal, EDOF or EDOF-multifocal), which often makes it possible through multiple focus points to completely live without glasses
  • Laser cataract surgery – Here important operation steps are taken over by the laser (corneal incisions, opening of the lens capsule, lens dissection, corneal astigmatism correction) and the lens is also replaced by the appropriate artificial lens. Here standard, premium or special femtolaser lenses can be implanted.

Cataract surgery with the new technology is performed in two steps, one performed by the laser and one performed manually by the surgeon.

Step 1: The femtosecond laser can perform the opening of the lens capsule (capsulotomy), the dissection of the clouded lens (lens fragmentation), and the incisions through the cornea.

Step 2: The surgeon then aspirates the pre-fragmented lens with a small amount of ultrasound energy and implants the intraocular lens.

After laser cataract surgery, we will have permanently removed your cataracts. At the same time, the appropriate premium lens may at best let you live without glasses. More freedom, independence for you to enjoy the good things in life
