Non-Blade Cataract Surgery With Laser Technology

Cataract surgery is a procedure that removes the problematic lens in the eye.

Non-blade cataract surgery is an innovative treatment method that eliminates this vision fault by using special laser technology.

    I have read and accept theKVKK text.

    When Is The Right Time To Have Non-Blade Cataract Surgery?

    It is very much likely that you heard questions like “Is it worth getting cataract surgery” or “when is cataract surgery not recommended?” It is because cataract problems are very common. Some reasons may cause this condition such as drug use, and diabetes.

    The main symptoms of cataracts are:

    • Blurred vision,
    • Seeing halos around lights,
    • Difficulty reading a book,
    • Eye side
    • Low vision
    • Need for brighter light during the day and at night,
    • Light sensitivity,
    • Double vision.

    Of course, all of these can be related to different eye problems.

    In any case, it refers to situations that the doctor should see. So, if you experience these symptoms, you should see an expert.

    What Is Non-Blade Cataract Surgery?

    Cataract surgery helps treat clouded vision that complicates people's daily life in many ways. Driving a car, reading a book, or looking at detailed images/photos for a while can become very difficult activities for those who have cataracts. There are some methods developed to treat this condition and one of them is no blade cataract surgery.

    The patient can choose conventional cataract surgery or non-blade surgery. Conventional surgery is applied by using a scalpel, or special blade, however, no-blade surgery is performed with the laser which means no traditional medical incision instrument like blade is used during the process.

    Non-Blade Cataract Surgery Treatment

    At the first step of the treatment, comprehensive consultation is carried out. The patient's medical history and the degree of the eye problem are examined, and medical tests are done. If there is no obstacle, the operation date is decided.

    During the operation, imaging is done, and the doctor checks the inside of the eye with “Optical Coherence Tomography. Then, the laser-based incision is made. With a help of a laser beam, the self-sealing incision is applied, and the circle-shaped opening is created. In this way, the doctor reaches the cataract.

    The cataract is broken into small pieces in order to soften the cataract. After that, the cataract is removed. The next and final step is the insertion of the lens process. Replacement (IOL, stands for “Intraocular Lens”) is inserted. The incision does not need stitches.


    Non-Blade Cataract Surgery Recovery Period

    Recovery time for non-blade cataract surgery is not long. The patient may feel discomfort and soreness for a while but these side effects will fade out in time. Full recovery length may change from person to person however, it can be said that the approximate full recovery is achieved in 4 to 6 weeks. Patients can take some precautions to heal quicker:

    • Don’t touch the eyes,
    • Wear sunglasses,
    • Attend all follow-up appointments.


    Before surgery, the doctor runs some tests. As a result of these, if there are some challenges such as underlying problems that would affect the surgery in a negative way, these problems are solved at first and then a non-blade cataract operation is performed.

    Cataracts can be briefly explained as clouding of the lens in the eye. This situation reduces the quality of vision of the person. People who have cataract problems feel as if they are looking out of a fogged window.

    Since the expectations of the patients vary, which method is ideal may vary from person to person. However, no-blade offers a more comfortable operation and post-operative process compared to traditional methods. Traditional cataract surgeries, on the other hand, may appeal to those who want more affordable cataract surgery prices.
