Cataract surgery is the removal of the natural lens of the eye and an implantation of an artificial intraocular implant. Cataract surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia (either topical, peribulbar, or retrobulbar), usually causing little or no discomfort to the patient.
At the North American Lasik and Eye Surgery center, we are pound to be the leading center in UAE in cataract surgery. We use the latest technology in cataract extraction, Centurion ® vision system. This technology gives an unprecedented safety for cataract extraction. We, at the North American Lasik and Eye surgery center, perform the cataract surgery as a day surgery. Our surgeons keep talking to the non sedated patient throughout the surgery to reassure them of the steps of the surgery.
We offer the latest advanced technology intraocular lenses to reduce after surgery dependence on the glasses, to correct astigmatism, or even to read far and near.
