Eye Cataract - the technology in our hands

The Ophthalmos Research and Educational Institute is an eye clinic in Cyprus that is one of the two ophthalmology training centres of Eastern Europe for Bausch and Lomb, for the Small Incision Cataract procedure.

Dr Tassos Georgiou is the only Ophthalmic Surgeon in Cyprus who offers the Small Incision Eye Cataract procedure of 1.8mm.

Today we have the latest technology of the Small Incision Cataract procedure with many advantages

1. Allows an incision into the cornea smaller than 1.8mm 
2. Provides the least surgical trauma to the eye, resulting in faster healing 
3. Minimises the possibility of the appearance of post operative astigmatism 
4. Allows the insertion of the new generation of small incision intraocular lens for a better quality of vision. 
5. Provides a safer surgical procedure due to the small size of the instruments.

Cataract is the natural lens of the eye which has become blurred. The vision becomes blurred as the light that passes through the eye is reduced and cannot reach the back of the eye. It can develop at any age, but usually appears in older people. It can also be caused by trauma, various medications, chronic inflammation or other diseases such as Diabetes.

Dr Tassos Georgiou uses the new technology with the 1.8mm incision. Through this incision the cataract is removed. A permanent intraocular lens replaces the natural lens that has been removed. There is no need for stitches in the small incision method as it heals on its own. The operation is done with topical anaesthetic drops.

After the operation the patient begins to see slowly and soon returns to a normal life due to the swift recovery. Swimming and washing of hair is avoided for 2 days.

We use the most advanced implants. Crystalens AO for high quality vision in the most advanced implant to see as natural way as possible. [ more ]
