Cataract is an opacity or cloudiness in the natural lens of the eye. It is still the leading cause of blindness worldwide which cannot be corrected with glasses, contact lenses or corneal refractive surgery like LASIK. In India, Cataract is commonly known as Safed Motia.At Netram Eye Foundation, Cataract Surgery is performed by the latest Phacoemulsification technique under topical anaesthesia where no needle is given. The phacosurgery is done via a standard 2.8 mm incision or a MICRO Phaco with a 1.8 mm incision. Only foladable IOLs are implanted which are from world renowned ZEISS Company. Facility for MULTIFOCAL and TORIC IOLs is also available. Patient is discharged on the day of surgery and no admission is needed.
Robotic cataract surgery/ Femto cataract surgery:
Femtosecond laser technology brings accuracy and precision to already precise cataract surgery.
In laser cataract surgery, an advanced femtosecond laser replaces use of blades for the following steps in cataract surgery:
1. The corneal incision
2. The anterior capsulotomy
3. Lens and cataract fragmentation
Thus robotic cataract surgery/ femto/ bladeless cataract surgery minimizes the chances of human error.
