Ultrasound surgery for an optimal recovery of sight
The Clinica San Francesco is also specialized in ophthalmological operations, particularly in senile cataract procedure. The most common technique for the solution of this problem is the phacoemulsification, consisting in the fragmentation of lens nucleus inside the eye through ultrasounds and in its following aspiration. The eye operation is carried out briefly (about 10/15 minutes) by a small tube inserted into the eye through a few millimeters opening. In most cases the operation permits a good visual recovery.
Normally, if there are not lesions in other parts of eye, it’s a question of an outpatient operation performed in local anesthesia (parabulbar injection) or topical anesthesia (administration of collyrium), but always with help of an anesthesiologist able to best manage possible emergencies. In many cases the course allows a good visual recovery.
Thanks to technologies and state of the art materials, used by the Clinic surgery team, the surgical trauma is reduced to a minimum and the postoperative rehabilitation is more rapid and effective.
