Laser surgery


A surgical approach was recently selected hospitals cataract surgery is using femtosecond laser technology. Instead of using ultrasound in phaco surgery, doctors will use laser energy from the high frequency at speeds of 10-15 seconds to make precise incisions, central location right in the front lens cover, and thanks to the destruction of human laser into small pieces and use less energy than ultrasound.

This method is becoming a new promise during cataract surgery to improve eyesight due to the better after surgery, patients recover faster, less bleeding complications and can control the situation astigmatism. Comes with the benefits that this method provides, patients may also spend a relatively high cost component, ranging from 300000-500000 USD (60-100 million). In Vietnam today, this approach is not common, but only applicable in some private hospitals have eye specialist.

– Coating which follows is one of the common risk after cataract ranges from 6 months to 1 year. But this situation can be resolved by use of laser energy to break this opaque part.

If the patient’s visual acuity decline more severe you may need to replace a different intraocular lenses, but this is rarely specified due to high costs and the possibility of major risks. On the other hand, people who are suffering from other diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, uveitis … then the replacement of the crystalline lens is not optimal because it does not impact on the cause of the disease.
