Opthalmology - Eye Specialists

Any adult who is approaching the age of 60 and above (even those in their late fifties), who is suffering from impaired cloudy vision, may be suffering from cataracts. This is a very common eye disease and one that can be corrected thanks to advanced surgical techniques. The cataracts are not a film that lies over the eye but a thickening of the lens that impairs light from travelling to your retina. The lens is replaced by another and done in a minimally invasive way. Cataract Surgery is a same day procedure.

A corneal graft or DSAEK surgery involves the replacement of a diseased cornea with healthy donor tissue. The surgeon will use precise techniques to prepare the donor tissue for the patient, and then neatly place it where the diseased posterior portion of the cornea used to be. This is a complicated surgery, yet it is accomplished in a time of two to three hours, with vision showing a remarkably improvement in less than two months. Surgery options for ophthalmology in South Africa are now made easy thanks to Surgical Bliss.
Implantable Contact Lenses
Until recently, Cape Town patients with extreme refractive errors have posed a problem to the ophthalmologist. Studies conducted on implantable contact lens surgery have shown that this intra-ocular surgical technique may be the solution. In the case of patients who display high degrees of short-sightedness and farsightedness implantable contact lenses are more suitable than laser eye surgery. Vision also returns more rapidly, often within a day or so. This procedure is very successful and has been described as “magic” by both patients and surgeons.
