Dr. Forster is one of the leading Ophthalmologist here in Brisbane, and has a vast experience in performing cataract surgery.
Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in one’s eyes which results in distortion of his/her vision. The lens of the eye is composed primarily of proteins. Cataracts are caused by the changes in the chemical makeup of the lens. Most cataracts develop when aging or injury changes the tissue that makes up your eye’s lens, and eventually the lens becomes thicker and less clear.
Cataract is the most common cause of vision loss in people over age 40 and is also the major cause of visual impairment and blindness in the world.
Have you noticed any changes in your vision including the symptoms above? You might want to visit an expert to be diagnosed and get proper treatment.
Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the clouded lens (cataract) from your eyes in order to help you see clearly and better.
Brisbane cataract surgery is one of the most frequently performed and successful surgeries here in Australia. Brisbane cataract surgery usually can restore vision lost to cataracts — and most probably reduce your dependence on eyeglasses as well. More than 95 percent of surgeries have no complications, and all result in improved vision.
The results of Brisbane cataract surgery are unbelievably excellent and the procedure is recognised as both the most common and most successful operation performed worldwide.
Dr. Forster has vast experience and a special interest in the treatment of cataracts and has sophisticated equipment for measuring patients pre-operatively to assess the power and type of intraocular lens to be implanted. As well as the standard mono-focal intraocular lenses he is now implanting a large number of toric intraocular lenses to correct astigmatism and for selected patients, a tri-focal intraocular lens for those patients who wish to be spectacle independent.
Dr. Forster is more than qualified!
