CATARACT SURGERY

One of Mr. Abumattar's fondest clinical interests is cataract surgery, including Premium Intraocular lenses (Multifocal – Toric IOL) and post cataract Laser (Yag).

Cataract surgery aims to treat cataract related visual symptoms including clouding, blurring or dimming, difficulty seeing at night, sensitivity to light, the need for brighter light to read, glare and "halos" around lights, fading and yellowing of colours and frequent changes in glasses.

Mr. Abumattar uses both standard and Premium intraocular implants that expand the range of clear vision and can offer freedom from eyeglasses after surgery. Premium implants include Multifocal Lenses and Toric Lenses to treat astigmatism.

Mr Abumattar also offers EyeMax Mono implants for Age Related Macular Degeneration patients requiring cataract surgery.  iolAMD EyeMax Mono is an extended macular lens with advanced optics that provide far superior vision than standard monofocal lenses.
