Many of the cataract patients come to the Clinic when they are functionally blind, often with previous loss of one eye or bilateral advanced cataracts.
Surgery is complicated by the advanced nature of many cataracts and the high rate of pseudoexfoliation syndrome, often with very lax zonules and poorly dilating pupils. We perform small incision extra-capsular and phaco-emulsification cataract surgery.
Patients stay at the Clinic overnight, and are examined the first post-operative day. They are provided with medications and instructions following surgery, and are seen again in one week by a local ophthalmologist.
