INTRAOCULAR LENS SYSTEM – ICL
For the correction of important refraction defects it is possible to carry out the implantation of a particular soft lens which is placed in contact with the crystalline lens (ICL: Implantable Collamer Lens).
CATARACT SURGERY: THE ZEPTO CATARACT
The cataract is a degenerative disease affecting the ocular lens which, through a process of opacification, can cause blindness. After performing a perfectly circular automated cut of the lens capsule with the Zepto device, which uses micro-pulse technology, cataract surgery makes use of a phaco emulsifier.
Vitrectomic acid consists of the removal of the vitreous body, a transparent gelatin that fills the eye cavity. This is removed in the event of vitreous accumulation, bleeding or when it is necessary to remove some membranes on the retina or in case of detachment of the same.
INTRAVITREAL INJECTIONS FOR RETINAL PATHOLOGIES
Intravitreal injections are used to mainly treat neovascular diseases, which lead to abnormal growth of capillaries inside the eye. Vessel proliferation is a very complex process regulated by a large number of chemical factors, including VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) that plays a fundamental role in generating the stimulus to the formation of abnormal vessels.
