A Cataract is an eye disorder clouding the lens of your eye which causes a decrease in vision and blurry vision. Cataracts will not be corrected by glasses or medicine but surgery.

Like other refractive surgeries, cataract surgery in Iran is an easy surgery performed with advanced technologies in modern clinics at an affordable price. The good news is Iran has a high success rate in cataract surgery and Iranian experienced ophthalmologists perform successfully more than 70,000 cataract surgery per year.

Your surgeon will conduct several tests to diagnose a cataract, including a visual acuity test, lit-lamp examination, and retinal examination.

Cataract surgery is an outpatient operation and performs under anesthesia. Your surgeon removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with a permanent artificial lens.

The recovery period is about 8 weeks but it may differ from patient to patient. If you need cataracts for your both eyes, then the surgeon schedules the second surgery after the first one was healed.
