Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Cataracts
A cataract is the opacification of the natural crystalline lens inside the eye which results in blurry vision. A normally clear lens passes the light through to the back of the eye, which makes it possible to see well-defined images. In case when the part of the lens becomes opaque light does not pass through easily and the vision becomes blurry – like looking through cloudy water or a fogged-up window. The more opaque (cloudier) the lens becomes the worse it will affect the vision.1
And What Are The Symtoms Of Cataracts?
Signs and symptoms of Cataract include 2 :
- Clouded, blurred or dim vision
- Increasing difficulty with vision at night
- Sensitivity to light and glare
- Need for brighter light for reading and other activities
- Seeing "halos" around lights
- Frequent changes in eyeglass or contact lens prescription
- Fading or yellowing of colors
- Double vision in a single eye
What Is An IntraOcular Lens (IOL)?
An intraocular lens (or IOL) is a tiny, artificial lens for the eye. It replaces the eye's natural lens that is removed during cataract surgery. In cataract surgeries, the clouded natural lens must be removed from the eye and replaced by an implanted, artificial lens to restore focusing power. This artificial lens is called an intraocular lens. 3
What Is a Trifocal IOL?
Trifocal IOLs correct near, intermediate and far vision. Trifocal IOLs offer freedom of spectacles for comfortable vision from all distances. In other words Trifocal IOLs do not only treat cataracts but also eliminate presbyopia.
Are There Other IntraOcular Lens Options?
Yes, there are different types of intra ocular lenses on the market. Just talk to your doctor to find out which option might be right for you.
What Is a MultiFocal IntraOcular Lens?
Multifocal or Bifocal IOLs correct both near and far vision, however you will still need spectacles to see objects located in between.
What Is a MonoFocal IntraOcular Lens?
Monofocal IOL provides excellent, high-quality distance vision from day to night so you can see the things you love with clarity. Thus ALSEE (monofocal IOL) provides you continuous contrast sensitivity in low light conditions as well as photopic conditions with one of the best-corrected distance visions.4 Likewise, ALSIOL VF -another monofocal IOLs- provides deeper depth of focus vision in day and night decreases light scatterings, glare and halos in twilight and night 24H light efficiency.5
Does The Alsafit Fourier IOL Address Presbyopia?
Yes, the ALSAFIT Fourier Lens is designed to eliminate presbyopia and it is developed with Harmonic Optic Design with Reversed Apodization feature that maintains continuity of optimal light distribution and continuous focus regardless of lightning conditions. 6
Can Cataract Surgery Correct Astigmatism?
There are several ways modern cataract surgery can correct astigmatism. One option is to replace the eye's cloudy natural lens with a special type of premium intraocular lens (IOL) called a toric IOL.
Which IOLs Correct Astigmatism?
If you suffer from astigmatism, and you are seeking treatment for cataracts, toric IOLs will provide an excellent solution for you. ALSASET FOURIER TORIC is specifically designed for patients with astigmatism. This is the World’s first Reverse Apodized Fourier Toric Optic which offers high contrast sensitivity at near, intermediate and far vision and all distances in between during daytime and nightime while correcting astigmatism. 7
Is Cataract Surgery Safe?
Cataract surgery is a very safe procedure, with nearly 98 percent being performed without serious complications. In fact, a recent study of more than 200,000 medicare beneficiaries who underwent cataract surgery between 1994 and 2006 found that 99.5 percent of patients had no severe postoperative complications. Advances in surgical tools and techniques are helping to further reduce the already rare risk of serious complications from cataract surgery. 8
How Long Does The Procedure Last?
Procedure times vary according to the state of patient, as well as the type and grade of cataract. Currently cataract surgeries are very short procedures due to a technique called “phacoemulsification”. During this procedure, the old, clouded lens is removed and the new lens implant is inserted through a tiny incision in the eye.
Will I Have Anaesthesia During The Surgical Procedure?
Cataract surgery is performed almost exclusively as an outpatient procedure. It usually involves the administration of a local anesthetic in addition to systemic sedation administered by an anesthesiologist or nurse anesthetist. Narcosis (general anesthesia) is not applied except in children, babies and under certain special conditions. 9
Can Cataract Surgery Be Performed On Both Eyes At The Same Time?
If you need to have cataract surgeries in both eyes, the procedure is typically scheduled for two separate surgeries, usually four to eight weeks apart. This allows time for the first eye to heal before the second eye surgery takes place. 10
How Long Will The New Lens Last?
Lenses are life-long and remain in the eye permanently except under very special conditions.
Will I Use Glasses After The Cataract Surgery?
With monofocal lens procedures, only the degree of far vision is calculated for surgery and patients will still need reading glasses after implantation. However, with multifocal intraocular lens implantation, patients will be able to enjoy crisp, clear vision for both reading and far-distances, without having to use glasses.*
Trifocal technology was designed for patients who want to live without glasses. With trifocal lenses, the patient can see the far, near and intermediate distance very well without glasses. Trifocal IOLs offer freedom of spectacles for comfortable vision from all distances, in this way your doctor may consider the ALSAFIT FOURIER.
*Multifocal lenses correct both near and far vision, however you will still need spectacles to see objects located in between.
Can I Drive After Cataract Surgery?
In most cases, a patient can start driving again the day after they have cataract surgery. Because cataract surgery requires mild sedation, you won't be able to drive right after your procedure. You’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home. You must have someone available to drive you home after the procedure. You'll be given a pair of sunglasses to wear on the trip home to protect your eye from bright light and glare. Consult with your doctor about the length of time you’ll need assistance. Almost 96% of eyes that had no other problems such as other eye diseases prior to a cataract procedure achieved at least 20/40 uncorrected distance visual acuity, which legally is good enough to drive without eyeglasses or contact lenses. 11
Can I Fly After Cataract Surgery?
Most people could fly the day after cataract surgery if that was needed. Almost all ophthalmologists require their patients to be examined the first day after cataract surgery and again at about 5-8 days. Consult with your doctor for advice on early post operative air travel. 12
Can I Exercise After Cataract Surgery?
It is recommended to avoid some serious activities to help to ensure trouble-free recovery like so swimming, strenuous exercises, and lifting weights. After recovery, Your surgeon can tell you when you can resume more vigorous exercise. 13
