Cataract is one of the byproducts of human aging, and everyone is likely to suffer from cataracts. Elderly cataracts are due to eye aging leading to lens opacity. This is due to the natural lens of the collagen in the lens decomposition, and ultimately impede the fiber through the lens to reach the retina, affecting vision. In early period, people suffering from cataract with no drug can prevent or treat cataract, the only most effective treatment is the implementation of cataract surgery, and implantation of intraocular lens. Femtosecond laser will be the traditional ultra-breast surgery, by the artificial corneal incision, capsulorhexis, cleavage, three most critical steps automated. Incision without surgery, reduce surgical trauma, faster recovery after surgery.

Hong Kong's population aging rapidly
It is expected that the proportion of the population aged 65 and above will be 28% of the current population in 2039, while the cataract population will be mostly middle-aged and elderly, so cataract patients will increase with aging.
Knowledge of cataracts

1.Do we need to wait for cataract get mature (that is, the entire pupil area turned white) before considering surgery?

Mature cataracts, if not treated early, may cause irreversible damage to the eyes. Missed the best timing of the operation, the risk of surgery will be a corresponding increase in postoperative visual acuity recovery time will be extended, and will reduce the choice of various types of high-end artificial crystal opportunities.


2.Today's cataract surgery is not just a turbid crystal

Today's cataract surgery is already a value-added surgery, in addition to remove the turbidity of the crystal, but also to deal with most of the patients suffering from myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism refractive errors, can be described as multiple purposes.


3.Is cataract only happened to elderly?

40-year-old middle-aged people may also be troubled by cataracts, especially in patients with high myopia, cataract is a high-risk family.

Cataract surgery has entered a knifeless era
Advantages and Disadvantages of Femtosecond Laser Cataract Surgery
Advantages of femtosecond laser cataract surgery
Increased accuracy
Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery instrument combined with femtosecond laser, high-definition optical tomography and computer navigation software system, can visualize the organization within the eye, the cornea, crystal and other organizations to accurately measure the thickness and positioning, making the instrument can be accurate Positioning and handling deeper than the cornea of the eye tissue, such as the crystal anterior capsule and hardened crystal nuclei, etc., so that doctors can accurately cut and evenly crush the crystal, whether in the cutting shape and depth more perfect fine. According to the study shows that the other greatly improved accuracy, ten times compare to the past.
Summary of femtosecond laser treatment of cataract
This operation can be accurate cutting, the overall safety of surgery, the risk is low, can also reduce the risk of surgical complications, surgery has a good application prospects, especially in some hard crystal nucleus, need to implant multi-focus intraocular lens There are obvious advantages in patients with high cost of capsulorhexis. Patients need to consult an ophthalmologist.
