Cataract surgery is the only solution to restore vision for people with this common disease. Currently, modern artificial lens replacement methods such as Phaco and Laser Cataract have a success rate of up to 98%. However, to achieve maximum vision, patients only choosing surgical methods and artificial lenses are not enough. Patients need to consider the following 4 factors to achieve the most optimal treatment results.

Surgery is the only solution to treat cataracts

Strict examination - surgery - re-examination process

A professional and thorough surgical examination process plays an important role in the patient's visual quality after surgery. Patients need to have an in-depth examination before surgery to accurately assess the condition and choose an appropriate treatment plan. The surgical process needs to comply with the safety rules of the Ministry of Health, ensuring accuracy and providing good results after surgery.

In addition, post-operative follow-up appointments also need to be followed by the patient according to the ophthalmologist's instructions to help vision recover quickly and promptly handle unusual symptoms (if any).

The patient has an in-depth examination before cataract surgery at the Japan International Eye Hospital

At Japan International Eye Hospital, patients will undergo cataract examination and surgery according to Japanese standards with 14 intensive steps:

  • Examination and decision on surgical method and type of artificial lens.
  • Check eye function to ensure the eye is eligible for surgery.
  • Take blood and urine for testing to evaluate blood sugar index and screen for infectious diseases.
  • Sign a commitment to surgery.
  • Move to the break room and change into patient clothes.
  • Receive medication for use after surgery and be informed about eye care.
  • Medical examination before surgery.
  • Antiseptic before surgery.
  • Listen to step-by-step instructions during the surgery.
  • Perform surgery with the participation of surgeons and nurses closely supporting.
  • Rest after surgery.
  • Clean the eye area and around the eyes.
  • Check after surgery before leaving the hospital.
  • Schedule a follow-up appointment and discharge procedures.

Experienced surgeon

A successful surgery depends greatly on the skill of the ophthalmologist. Accordingly, the surgeon requires extensive experience to handle arising situations (if any) and dexterity in hand operations, especially with Phaco surgery.

In Vietnam, Dr. Vu Anh Tuan is a leading expert in the field of cataract treatment with nearly 30 years of experience:

  • Successfully performed more than 50,000 eye surgeries.
  • Instructor training Phaco surgeons.
  • Lecturer at Hanoi Medical University.
  • Standing member of the Executive Committee of the Vietnam Ophthalmology Association.
  • Member of the French Ophthalmological Society.
  • General Secretary of Vietnam Glaucoma Club.

Modern machinery system

Modern machinery and equipment systems are the premise to ensure accurate results during the examination process, thereby supporting the doctor in making the most appropriate treatment recommendations for the patient, while also helping the surgery to be successful.

Catalys machine (Johnson & Johnson - USA) is used at Japan International Eye Hospital

Accordingly, Japan International Eye Hospital owns a system of advanced equipment to support the process of cataract examination and surgery:

  • Catalys machine (Johnson & Johnson - USA) - the leading device in Femtosecond Laser technology in lens replacement surgery, helps accurately program laser incisions, combines astigmatism treatment and limits the risk of complications after surgery.
  • The Constellation system (Alcon - USA) with Ozil technology is safe in grinding and suctioning the lens nucleus, maintaining the anterior chamber, and fully protecting the endothelium and lens capsule.
  • Lumera 700 machine, OCT 3D fundus tomography machine, new generation IOL Master lens power meter (Carl Zeiss - Germany) support the in-depth eye examination process, providing accurate assessment indicators , thereby helping ophthalmologists prescribe appropriate treatment.

High-quality drugs, solutions, and supplies

To ensure hygiene and prevent infectious diseases, supplies and drugs used in surgery need to ensure good quality and clear origin.

Therefore, at Japan International Eye Hospital, surgical supplies are always renewed for each patient, drugs and solutions do not contain preservatives, and are imported genuine from abroad such as IVISC mucus (Carl Zeiss - Germany), Duo VISC (Alcon - USA), BSS infusion (Alcon - USA).
