Lasik Eye Surgery 3. Corneal Refractive Surgery • CATARACT SURGERY A cataract is a very common condition in the older population. Cataract causes the clear lens of the eyes to become cloudy, which makes it difficult for people to see properly. Clouded vision makes it difficult for people to read, write and drive a car. It also makes it difficult for people to see clearly at night. It can also lead to eye pain and headaches due to changes in eyesight. Cataracts can develop due to a lot of different reasons. It is common in older adults, smokers, and people with diabetes, high blood pressure, or a family history of cataracts. It is also common in people who are obese, have a prolonged history of corticosteroid use, had past surgery or injury to the eye. Cataract surgery is the only cure for cataract. Cataracts cannot be treated with any medication, nor can their progression be stopped. Worldeye Amsterdam uses modern techniques to operate cataracts by performing a pain-free procedure without using needles and using eye drops for local anesthesia. After the procedure, patients can return to their homes or their hotel within a couple of hours. This hospital normally treats both eyes on the same day to save patients time and decrease the impact in their daily life. The specialists at Worldeye Amsterdam are all very well experienced and only work according to the latest standards of care and use A-quality lenses produced by ZEISS and Bausch Lomb along with high-quality materials and equipment. • LASIK EYE SURGERY If you have weak eyesight and you are tired of wearing lenses or eyeglasses, laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) eye surgery will be the right choice for you. LASIK is a type of refractive eye surgery. Before your procedure, the trained eye specialist at Worldeye Amsterdam will ask you questions related to your eye health and evaluate your eyes to make sure your eyes are fit for the procedure. Their specialist will then use a special type of cutting laser to precisely change the curvature of your cornea (the dome-shaped transparent tissue at the front of your eye) to the required amount. With each pulse of the laser beam, a small amount of corneal tissue is removed, which allows your surgeon to flatten the curve of the cornea or make it steeper. Reshaping the cornea will provide the necessary refraction and vision correction. • REFRACTIVE LENS EXCHANGE (RLE) / INTRAOCULAR LENS TREATMENT (IOL) Refractive lens exchange (RLE)/ Intraocular lens treatment (IOL) is ideal for people who want to correct their refractive error but are not ideal for lasers. With these treatment methods, the natural eye lens of the patient is removed and replaced with a lens with multi- or trifocal functionality. These lenses contain rings that help with near, intermediate, and far vision. At the Worldeye Amsterdam, the patients first have a detailed eye examination, including measurements for the new lens, which takes around 1.5 hours. Personalized lenses are then ordered. It takes up to two weeks for the patient's unique lens to be delivered at the clinic. On the day of the procedure, it takes about 15 minutes per eye for the procedure. It usually takes a total of 3 hours before the patient can go back home or to their hotel. After the procedure, two follow-up appointments are scheduled in the first two weeks, which are necessary to attend. The patient regains normal vision within 1-2 days after the surgery.
