The patient was treated of cataract in Confraternitaet Private Hospital

Everything was fine. Bookimed was very kind to find me an appointment pretty short notice in Vienna. The surgent was very professional. The only thing I would have preferred was to pay with a credit card. I had to go to an ATM and pay cash.

FAQ about Cataract Treatment

Fahad Mawlood

Medical editor

01.12.2013 · Updated 28.10.2019

What is cataract?

Cataract is a clouding of the lens which causes the vision loss and even blindness. The disease can affect one or both eyes. Cataract is the most common eye disease in people over 40.

Cataract causes 51% of world blindness. Over 20 million people over the world have cataract.

Surgery is the ONLY option for cataract treatment.

Cataract surgery is the procedure of clouded lens removal and the further replacement with the artificial one.

What are the cataract types?

Subcapsular cataract

Occurs at the back of the lens. People with diabetes are at the risk of this type cataract development due to taking the steroid drugs.

Nuclear cataract

Develops in the central part (nucleus) of the lens. Usually, seniors face this type of cataract.

Cortical cataract

Occurs in the lens cortex, the part that surrounds the nucleus.

What are the signs and symptoms of cataract?

If you notice some of these symptoms, visit an ophthalmologist immediately:

  • your vision has become cloudy and blurred
  • light from the lamp or sun seem too bright
  • colors around have become too dim
  • your eyes are out of focus.

How to detect cataract?

If you suspect having the cataract, consult with an eye doctor. Only after the complete examination, an ophthalmologist can confirm a diagnosis.

Cataract diagnostics usually includes standard eye tests such as:

  • visometry (the visual acuity test)
  • perimetry (the visual fields examination)
  • tonometry (the intraocular pressure measurement)
  • ophthalmoscopy (the eye fundus test).

How is cataract treated?

The indication for cataract surgery is the vision loss, which affects the person’s quality of life and causes the discomfort.

Phacoemulsification (Phaco) is the most common method for cataract surgery. During the operation, an eye surgeon makes a small incision on the eye surface and removes the damaged lens pieces with the suction device.

Phaco is a minimally invasive surgery. It means that the healing process after the operation is fast.

When the lens is extracted, an ophthalmologist carries out the intraocular lens (IOL) replacement. Instead of the natural lens, a surgeon implants the artificial IOL.

The intraocular lens is made of the plastic, acrylic, or silicone. A doctor determines the type of IOLs material due to the patient’s individual characteristics. The artificial implant is inserted via the incision made during phacoemulsification.

98% is a success rate of cataract operations. After the IOL replacement, an ophthalmologist changes the existing glass or lens prescriptions.

The surgery lasts for 1 hour. A patient is under local anesthesia during the procedure. In the most medical centers, phaco is performed on the outpatient basis. Hospitalization is not required, and a patient returns home immediately.

How much is a cataract operation?

Laser cataract surgery cost depends on the number of factors:

  • Cataract surgery charges. The surgery price varies in different medical centers. The standard bill usually includes the preparation for the procedure, cataract surgery, and postoperative examination.

Some hospitals include accommodation and meals to cataract removal cost. Consultation with an ophthalmologist can be included in the bill in some clinics, but the diagnostics is not contained to cataract eye surgery cost.

  • Geographical location of a clinic. Cataract removal cost differs from country to country. It is determined according to the economic development and the price policy within a state.
  • Experience and reputation of an eye surgeon. The cataract treatment by a highly-experienced ophthalmologist is more expensive. Usually, eye specialists undergo the international training that also affects the price of the surgery.
  • Status of a medical center. In the private clinics, cataract surgery cost is higher than in the state ones. Medical tourists over the world choose the private hospitals due to the high level of medical services and safety. The private clinics usually provide cataract surgery cost without insurance.
  • Additional services. Most of the medical facilities worldwide offer the international patients some benefits. The transfer to/from an airport, hotel booking, car rental, translation services are available in the clinics. But such benefits are not included in cataract eye surgery cost.
