Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery

The only alternative treatment for this visual problem is the operation through phacoemulsification and implant of an intraocular lens.

Currently, the operation of cataracts is performed as early as possible, once the patient begins to notice their symptoms and perceive a deterioration in their quality of vision, regardless of whether or not they have refractive problems (presbyopia, myopia, hyperopia and / or astigmatism). They are due to an opacity of the natural (or crystalline) lens of the eye.

Cataract surgery by phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implant that replaces the lens is the most frequent intervention in the field of ophthalmology and the procedure with the greatest overall impact on quality of life.


The appearance of cataracts is part of the natural aging process of the human being. There are also other factors that cause them, such as diabetes, eye infections or trauma and genetic inheritance.
