Cataract Surgery – Serving patients seeking cataract removal surgery in Abu Dhabi and the surrounding area

At Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center, the talented Abu Dhabi laser eye surgeons have more than 30 years of collective international eye care experience. Dr. Hani Sakla, Dr. Wassim Altroudi, Dr. Yara Lteif, Dr. Mohammad Abdulhafez and Dr. Gonzalo Munoz have been involved in developing cataract and other surgical techniques in numerous countries worldwide. Combining this extensive knowledge with an attentive manner, they are able to provide patients with advanced cataract removal surgery with premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs), in addition to other vision correction procedures and eye care services. Under the leadership of the practice's founder, Dr. Sakla, the surgeons and staff at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center deliver exceptional eye care with excellent results.

The ophthalmologists at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center perform a procedure called "no-stitch, micro-incision" cataract removal surgery whenever possible (medically appropriate). They first apply topical anesthetic drops to the eye for patient comfort. The eye surgeons then begin the surgery by creating a minute incision on the side of the cornea, through which they gently break up the cataractous (cloudy) natural lens. Next, they carefully remove the cloudy pieces of lens before inserting an IOL through the initial incision. The IOL provides patients with clear vision after surgery. Following cataract surgery, the incision in the eye will naturally heal without a need for stitches.

Cataract removal surgery is simple and painless. The entire surgical treatment takes about 15 to 30 minutes for both eyes. Patients can usually resume their normal activities the day after surgery. Individuals who have undergone cataract surgery at Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center generally remark that they can see clearly at multiple distances and no longer have a daily dependence on prescription glasses or contact lenses.

In addition to cataract surgery, Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center offers LASIK with the OptiLASIK™ laser, general eye care services, eyelid surgery, and treatment of glaucoma, diabetic eye conditions, keratoconus, chronic dry eye and many other bothersome eye conditions.

To schedule a one-on-one consultation with a leading eye surgeon and learn more about your laser vision correction options, please contact Ebsaar Eye Surgery Center by calling 971 4 344 01 22 today.
