Cataract is the progressive opacification of the lens of the eye (crystalline lens) leading to a decrease in vision, which cannot be improved by optical correction. Surgery consists of removing the crystalline lens and replacing it with an artificial lens (Implant). The surgery takes place in a sterile environment (operating room), most often under local anaesthetic during a day hospitalisation.
General consultation (refractive disorders (myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, presbyopia). Screening for ophthalmological pathologies. Diagnosis and follow-up of retinal diseases (AMD, diabetic retinopathy,...) and optic nerve diseases (glaucoma...). Consultation of children over 5 years old.
