Cataracts development factors
Many factors influence on the development of this disease, the most common being genetic predisposition. If both your parents suffered from cataracts, there is a good chance that you will also develop it as you age. Individuals who are more predisposed to suffer from cataracts include women (due to hormonal changes during menopause), smokers and those who excessively expose their eyes to UV-rays. The only effective way to treat cataracts is by surgery, which most people decide to take when poor vision obstructs their everyday activities. At the same time, this surgery is also an opportunity to get rid of your reading glasses. Ask the doctor about the possibility of multifocal lens insertion during your examination.More about patient experiences

Thank you very much for the successful refractive surgery! I feel great, space orientation indoors and outdoors, on the street, is much safer. Dr. Kristina, many thanks!
Only a year ago, I could barely cross the street while wearing my glasses. After Dr. Kristina performed the surgery, I can walk down the street without my glasses. Thank you from the heart to everyone, I feel reborn!
