Intraocular lens Tunisia : Ocular implant to treat cataract disease

Intraocular lenses Tunisia: what are intraocular lenses?

An intraocular lens Tunisia is an ocular implant that is surgically placed inside the eye to serve as a permanent lens. Thanks to technological advances in refractive surgery, the intraocular lenses used are made of a very soft and flexible material to ensure the comfort of the eyes.

Intraocular implants are used to correct various visual disorders such as cataracts, nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia or astigmatism.

In the case of a cataract, the intraocular lens serves as a substitute for the opacified lens, which must be removed before the implant is placed. This procedure is irreversible and the natural lens cannot be restored. It should be noted that the placement of intraocular implants remains the only treatment for cataracts, until today.

In the case of astigmatism, myopia or hyperopia, the lens is preserved and the intraocular lens is placed in addition to correct the visual disorder. This operation is reversible and the ocular implant can be removed in the future, if necessary. This procedure is usually only recommended when the patient has one or more contraindications to laser treatment.

One of the advantages of intraocular lenses is that they are also invisible, permanent, comfortable and maintenance-free.

How is intraocular lens surgery performed in Tunisia?

The placement of ocular implants is a procedure that does not take much time (between 10 to 20 minutes per eye). It is usually done on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia. It must be done in a perfectly sterile surgical environment.

Once the eye has been numbed with eye drops, the surgeon makes a micro-incision (2.2mm) in the cornea.

In the case of a cataract, the surgeon cuts the lens with an ultrasonic probe and removes it from the eye. The surgeon then proceeds to insert the intraocular lens. The micro-incision is usually not sutured because it is very small.

In the case of astigmatism or strong myopia, the lens is not removed and the surgeon proceeds directly to the placement of the lens, in front of or behind the iris (depending on the implant chosen).
