Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgeries 19 November 2022


The procedures are done every month in Brick Bay, Roatan.

Eye surgeries are performed with the aim of improving the visual/ocular health of patients and places are limited.

Cataract is the opacification of the inner lens of the eye. The surgery consists in removing the lens and replacing it with an intraocular implant. Phacoemulsification is method of cataract surgery in which the eye’s internal lens is emulsified using ultrasonic energy and replaced with an intraocular lens implant. Is the safest method there is when it comes to removing cataracts. Phacoemulsification restores vision in patients with cataracts, which is a clouding of the eye’s lens.

The pterygium is a fleshy tissue that comes out on the outside of the eyes. The procedure involves removing it and then applying a conjunctival graft to reduce the chances of it growing back and give the eye a more natural appearance.

Both surgeries are safe and performed in a state-of-the-art operating room with high-tech ophthalmic equipment.

Preparing the patient for cataract surgery takes 1 hour and the surgeries last around 30 minutes.

The first step to undergo surgery is to go to an ophthalmological evaluation to examine the eye (L. 1,500), measure vision, evaluate intraocular pressure, take measurements of the intraocular implant that will be placed inside the eye, explain the recovery process and provide a visual forecast.

After surgery you go home patched, we see you the next day to remove it, evaluate the eye, and explain the use of the medication. Later we will see you 10 days after having operated and then in 30 days. These three post-operative consultations are free of charge.

The price of the surgeries will be given by the doctor in person to make it as accessible as possible.
