    Cataract Handling 
    Cataracts can be overcome by lifting the cloudy lens. There are several techniques for operations performed in hospitals. Operations with wide sliced and conventional sutures, or with a small incision without sutures. Lenses were collected using Phaceomulcification tool(small incision surgery). The choice of techniques of this operation depends on the level of the hardness level of the lens. After the cataract lens is taken, the patient can only count fingers at a distance of one meter, except for patients with the lenses replaced. 
    Lenses Replacement: 
  • After cataracts surgery, patients were given positive glasses or contact lenses approximately 10 diopters.
  • Patients were installed with planting lens. the benefits are patient can see clearly after the operation, no need to wear thick glasses lens, distortion of light can be eliminated.
