How does lens replacement surgery work?
Dr. Panayiotis Christou will choose a lens customised to your vision and lifestyle needs. This artificial replacement lens could provide the benefit of being able to focus on near, intermediate and far objects, as previously provided by glasses or contact lenses. It can even correct astigmatism.
The lens replacement surgery itself takes no more than 20 minutes, but you’ll have to rest about 30 minutes to an hour immediately after the procedure. As your eye will be anaesthetised with numbing drops, you will feel no pain. The discomfort and grogginess will gradually disappear while the anaesthesia is wearing off.
The success rate is very high. Lens replacement surgery is safe, and life changing for millions of patients who have this successful procedure every year.
All surgeries have some degree of risks, which is why you should discuss your procedure in detail with your eye surgeon. The risks of lens replacement surgery are low and complications are rare, and can be further mitigated by choosing a high-quality lens replacement provider.
