Helping bring vision to the visually impaired.
Our goal is to help underprivileged people in Sri Lanka to overcome the difficulties in their life as a result of their lost eyesight. We partner with individuals and other charity organisations and share much needed resources and skills to help regain their lost livelihood.
A cataract is a clouding that develops in the crystalline lens of the eye or in its envelope, varying in degree from slight to complete opacity and obstructing the passage of light.
To help regain sight, the lens in the cataract eye are replaced by an artificial intraocular lens. These are small plastic lens with plastic side struts, called haptics, to hold the lens in place within the capsular bag inside the eye.
Under local anaesthetic, a small incision is made into the eye of the patient and the cataract lens is replaced with the artificial one. The method used by our surgeons is fast, minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time
