The cataract is operated in ambulatory surgery (day care). It’s the most common type of surgery in France.
In France, about 600.000 patients are operated annually. Generally, the anesthesia is topical, which means that the operation is performed with the help of some eye drops with anesthetic effect. The intervention lasts about fifteen minutes. Postoperative effects are, as a general rule, simple.
Why choose Artisan and Artiflex lenses?
This means that the lens can be replaced or removed anytime. In case of complications, the eye can be restored in its initial state, impossible in case of laser treatment. Indeed, during such treatment, a thin layer of the cornea is removed by the laser rays.
Do you want to keep the optimal visual acuity? Artisan and Artiflex lenses guarantee an impeccable visual acuity, as the central part of the cornea is not affected. The laser treatment is done on this absolutely essential part of the cornea.
This applies to the eye. You naturally want to be sure that this solution is a safe one. For more than 25 years, Artisan and Artiflex lenses are implanted all over the world. These lenses have been subject of a study for many years, and the results were proven without exception: these lenses are safe and effective even over a long term.
Artisan and Artiflex lenses are equally indicated to people who need a high positive or negative correction (diopter + 12 -23.5), with or without astigmatism, contrary to laser treatments.
