Is Cataract Surgery Safe?

Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most highly perfected surgical procedures in medicine, with a more than 98% success rate. Most problems can be treated successfully. 

Cataract surgery is performed under a microscope and precision is key. Modern advances can make this procedure even more accurate. In laser assisted cataract surgery a femtosecond laser replaces the use of a blade. This can be combined with computer assisted cataract surgery where assistance functions are projected directly into your surgical field.

In cataract surgery planning is the key to success. The Vivior Monitor offers objective data on the patients’ lifestyles to support the optimal selection of intraocular lenses. Now you also have the option of seeing clearly without glasses again with multifocal and extended depth of field lenses. The Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is the only IOL that enables your doctor to customize your vision after cataract surgery. Adjustability takes cataract surgery to the next level by giving you a lens customized specifically for your eyes.
