The transparent crystalline lens is located within the eye. Cataract is a clouding of the lens, which, when growing, results in decreased vision and glare. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial lens so that light reaches the retina again. The vision then improves and can return to normal.
Cataract surgery is performed at the Clinique du Parc Léopold. The eye is usually anesthetized with eye drops. It is not necessary to be fasting. You will leave the one-day clinic with a protective shell and will be controlled a couple of days later by your surgeon at Messidor Eye Center. You will be given medicated eye drops to use for a few weeks until the complete healing of your eye.
