Current treatment for Cataract is removal via surgical means.
The procedure and surgical techniques have improved markedly over the years, increasing accuracy of results and better surgical outcomes. Technology has enabled surgeons to refine surgical techniques during the procedure through the improvements in Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) design and better delivery mechanisms for insertion of IOL.
Pre-Surgery measurements have increased the accuracy of visual outcomes through advancements in instrumentation. At Hunter Street Eye Specialists Dr Lim and Dr Sumich use swept source optical coherence (OCT) biometry, that has proven track record for repeatability & reproducibility – quickly becoming the industry gold standard for ocular biometry. Measuring the length and curvature of the eye accurately, assists clinicians and surgeons with IOL power calculations to achieve desired visual outcomes. Swept source biometry has been demonstrated to be more effective in measuring eyes with dense cataracts, providing surgeons accuracy in lens power calculations and hence increasing likelihood of more accurate targeted visual outcomes.
