Our Services Cataract Surgery

The lens in a human eye works to focus or refract light emitted from objects onto the retina.

A cataract is a clouding that develops in the clear crystalline lens of the eye, causing blurred vision. Early in the development of cataract, one can improve vision by adjusting the diopter for the glasses. However, as cataract progresses to cause vision loss, the diopter adjustment will not be of help. Currently, there is no medication that can prevent or treat cataract. The only effective treatment is surgery and intraocular lens implantation.

Established in 2003, the Cataract Surgery Centre was comprehensively equipped with the most advanced facilities and technologies. The Centre was renamed "Eye Surgery Centre" in 2012. All surgeries are performed by the ophthalmologists of the Department of Ophthalmology. During surgeries, there are several pain management options, among which General Anesthesia and Monitored Anesthesia Care are to be performed only by anesthesiologists. Monitored Anesthesia Care, chosen by one third of our patients, is a kind of pain management that can only be done in a hospital. There are also different types of implanted lens for patients to choose from. Other than traditional Monofocal Lens, toric lens, multifocal lens are also available so that one can treat cataract and correct refractive errors at the same time.
