Cataract Laser Surgery



In cataract, the lens protein will change over time and aggregate to form insoluble protein and yellow chromophores. These yellow chromophores will decrease vision by increase light scattering and light absorption which leads to decrease in the amount of lights that pass through the lens and reach the retina.

A new technique came at the Glostrup Hospital at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. This technique uses infrared laser which can deliver an extreme fast pulsated beam to bleach these yellow chromophores from the lens and restore the lens to its normal transparency. This procedure is less invasive than the standard Phaco-emulsification surgery.

This technique still under further researches and studies before it becomes available in the markets.
