For the first time in the Republic of Tatarstan in the clinic "Eye surgery Comb", carried out a unique operation on the newest technology implantation of phakic intraocular lenses Alcon AcrySof Cachet. At the opening of the Russian Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (RSCRS) September 30, 2011 was an international teleconference with the participation of leading ophthalmic clinics in Milan (Italy), Bari (Italy), Moscow, Kazan, Rostov, Astrakhan and Krasnodar.
The first patient was a young girl, a therapist Oksana Zakharov. "In elementary school I had a bad vision, which is getting worse every year. A few years ago, I was examined in various clinics Kazan and Moscow in search of a method that would improve vision without serious consequences. With myopia, laser and other operations were not shown to me. The only possible way to see it was wearing thick glasses or contact lenses. In the thick glasses all distorted, they are heavy, and from the contact lenses I constantly flushed and his eyes ached. All this limited my life.
Two years ago, I went to the clinic "Eye surgery Comb" the advice of an ophthalmologist Alexander Rascheskovu. He recommended me a new correction method, the most appropriate and safe in severe nearsightedness. The problem was that such an operation was not done in Russia. At the time, Alexander Y. continued training and education in Ireland at the Swiss University of new technologies in ophthalmology. I was encouraged by promising to carry out the operation as soon as it received the certificate "- said Oksana Zakharov.
The new technology of implantation of phakic intraocular lenses Alcon AcrySof Cachet is indicated in patients with myopia of -6 to -16 diopters. Compared with the excimer laser vision correction at high myopia, the implantation of phakic intraocular lenses is safer and more beneficial for the patient, and in some cases the only possibility. According to Oksana Zakharova, pain during surgery, she did not feel it. "At the moment, no I do not feel discomfort. Just look at the world through different eyes: the colors are deeper and clearer, your eyes "breathe" — said the patient was satisfied.
— If the new method is fully preserved all the anatomical structures and nothing is removed. During the operation, a small puncture is made through which the inside of the eye is thin linzochki set that is completely correct refraction and does not require any special care. The operation is well tolerated by the patient, and despite the apparent simplicity of the operation is extremely important and necessary quality and a thorough examination of modern equipment and, of course, many years of experience of the surgeon.
The operation is completely frees man from dependence of glasses and contact lenses and significantly improves the quality of vision. This procedure is an outpatient basis, does not require hospitalization, the risk of complications is minimal.
In America, the technique is used for more than three years and operated approximately 5,000 people. This technique proved to be relatively safe, well-tolerated, with rapid postoperative effect, allowing very correctly fix something that previously required a rough irreversible intervention. This operation will help many patients with severe myopia to really look at the world of "new" eyes.
