Cataract is an age related change in the naturally clear lens of the eye. As we age this lens becomes opaque – this is called a cataract
Once a cataract develops the only way to treat it is with a surgery. Eye drops and spectacles do not improve vision.

To ensure prime health of an eye before surgery, you may be advised to undergo:
a. Pentacam for toric lens measurements
b. Macular OCT to see the health of the retina
c. Specular Microscopy to see the health of the cornea
Cataract removal can be done by 2 methods
Traditional manual phacoemulsification surgery is where incisions are made manually with blades followed by ultrasound energy to remove the cataract.
DIVA has a legacy in this surgery where the 1st Phacoemulsifictaion in India was performed by Dr Dipan Desai over 30 years ago.
Phacoemulsification surgery is a procedure that has stood the test of time.
This revolutionary laser first scans the eye and creates a live 3D unique blue print image with OCT providing micron level precision.
This optimizes the 3 most critical steps of cataract surgery. It creates accurate, reproducible and customized corneal and lens incisions.
With this cataract surgery becomes 100% bladeless improving the effectiveness, precision, outcomes and safety of traditional phaco surgery.
