Cataract surgery

Cataract surgery involves the removal of the eye's natural lense with a laser. It is replaced with an artificial lense to restore your vision.

The private clinics we partner with perform over 3000 of these procedures every year.

They use the latest laser technology to remove the old lense such as the: Carl Zeiss laser.

And they replace it with a choice of reliable mono and multi-focal lenses:
  • Carl Zeiss Acrylisa lenses
  • Alcon USA lenses
  • Bausch + Lomb lenses

How long does it take:

Cataract surgery takes less than 30mns. Then there is a recovery period of a couple of hours. You will be out of the clinic on the same day.

How much does cataract surgery cost:

The price for cataract surgery is around €1,000. The exact price depends on the number of eyes treated, the extent of the procedure, the clinic you choose and the lenses they use.
