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.

Cataract removal can be done by 2 methods

Traditional Manual Phacoemulsification

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.

Robotic Femtosecond  Laser assisted Cataract surgery (FLACS)

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.
