  •  Glare
  •  Halos around light
  •  Difficulty in night driving
  •  Frequent change in Glasses

Cataract is treated only through a surgery in which our damaged natural lens is replaced by an artificial intraocular lens to restore our vision.

3) LRCS (Robotic Femto Assisted Cataract Surgery)

Laser –assisted Cataract Surgery uses Femtosecond Laser guided by an advanced imaging system called OCT to create precise incisions. The computer guided incisions are accurate, and reproducible unlike incisions made with a surgical blade by hand. This is safer and more reliable than traditional cataract surgery. The lens is then removed and replaced with an IOL.


  •  Gentle on the cornea as laser is of extremely low intensity
  •  Unmatched precision
  •  Astigmatism is less
  •  Extremely short duration laser contact with the eye
