Epi Lasik is a superficial process therefore it might be safer in the future specially in cases where the corneal thickness is small.
It is possible if there is a sufficient Corneal thickness, and if there is slight decrease in vision, superficial laser can be performed.
If Astigmatism is high with Keratoconus then Hard Contact Lens is the safest solution.
each case is treated clinically based on its severity and urgency.
There are different kinds of Cataract " congenital cataract, senile Cataract", but most important causes of Cataract are:
- Senile cataract
- Traumatic Cataract
- Improper use of treatments "Cortisone" for long period.
- The possibility to have Cataract will increases in diabetic patients.
Surgical removal is the only treatment for Cataract.
One of the common wrong believes that its better to delay Cataract removal till it gets hard and vision becomes very low, it is very dangerous, and it may affect surgery's success rate.
It's better to remove Cataract as soon as vision is affected.
The cataractus lens will be removed under local anesthesia using Phaco technique through small opening "2 mm" and inserting new intra ocular lens.
It is the artificial lens that substitute the removed cataractus lens to sustain eye visual power.

- Multifocal IOL

Only you physician can inform you about the suitable eye lens for you based on eye case and vision requirements.
Physician's instruction strictly.
Use eye drops on i time after washing hands.
Use eye protection or sun glasses at all time.
Avoid eye rubbing or washing directly with water.
Protect your eye away from dust and smoke or places of animals and birds.
Be aware not to move a lot after surgery, and not to carry heavy things in the first days.
You will be able to watch TV or read after surgery.
When having any pain, redness or sudden weakness you must visit the center as soon as possible.
Using perfumes or smelling scents doesn’t affect surgery's result.
No diet program for cataract surgery patients, except those who are diabetics.
Not necessary . high eye pressure means that there is possibility to have Glaucoma.
Yes it is possible, because Glaucoma might happen without high intra ocular pressure and it is known as "low-tension Glaucoma".
Studies have shown that early detection and treatment is the best way to control the disease, if the classification of patient lies within those who are most susceptible to a disease, then he must be aware for periodic follow up.
And if someone has been diagnosed to have glaucoma and was medication to treat it , then it is a must to take it daily ,visit ophthalmologist regularly.
decrease intra ocular pressure when having Glaucoma "early stages" slows the progression of disease and helps to protect vision.
Unfortunately at this time there is no effective treatment conclusively, loss of vision that is caused by Glaucoma is irreversible, the aim of treatment is to stop deterioration and protect the rest of the vision.
Glaucoma affect the visual field of the affected person ,so driving becomes difficult due to limited vision .
