Cataracts, astigmatism, and co

Are you experiencing a deterioration of your vision? Do you feel sensitive to glare in the dark? Do you perceive everything to be covered with a yellowish haze? Is a decline in your vision affecting your daily life and leisure activities? Cataracts are an age-related eye condition, often occurring following presbyopia. The only way to treat cataracts is through surgery. During the procedure, your natural lens is removed and replaced with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Thanks to these modern lenses, cataracts can be cured and depending on the type of lens chosen, more independence from spectacles can be achieved. On this page, you will find a lot of information about various vision disorders, eye conditions and treatment options. We also explain the suitability of different types of IOLs.

We would be delighted to help improve your vision with our lenses.

For more in-depth questions and further discussion, please consult your ophthalmologist.
