Diagnosis & Treatment

Diagnosis of Cataracts

Because there are many possible causes for vision loss, it is important to establish a definite diagnosis. Physicians perform a series of diagnostic tests to determine whether the patient is suffering from cataracts. Testing includes a vision screening and examination of the front and back of the eye to determine the cause of vision loss.

Treatment for Cataracts

Once a patient’s symptoms become significant, surgical removal of the clouded lens and replacement with an implant is the only way to improve vision. Cataract surgery is performed using the latest technology and the Eye Institute has access to the newest types of implants, ensuring that patients are offered the best options available.

In appropriate cases, laser-assisted surgery is performed using an advanced femtosecond laser to create incisions in the eye, softening the lens in order to make it easier to remove. After the cataract is removed, an artificial lens implant is inserted into the eye to replace the natural lens. The artificial lens focuses light rays into the back of the eye to restore clear vision. Prior to surgery, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi physicians select the best implant for each patient’s eye to improve vision and reduce dependency on glasses.

After both cataract diagnostic testing and cataract treatment, it is important for patients to make the appropriate arrangements for assistance with transportation home.
