The main know-how of the Penza ophthalmology is surgery of complicated types of cataracts with combined pathology of the eye (primarily the retina and the vitreomacular interface). This applies primarily to patients with pathological myopia (routine cataract surgery can be cause of complication, like retinal detachment). Intraocular correction of aphakia by volume-changing intraocular lens (developed in Penza), can prevent some types of complications and save vision acuity in such a difficult situation.
The professional success of the Penza school of cataract surgery is noted at an international level. Our ophthalmosurgeons have been invited for demonstration of operations at the section "live surgery" in the international ophthalmological conferences (Moscow, Samara, Kazan, Astrakhan). The concept volume-changing intraocular lens was awarded the special prize of the American society of cataract and refractive surgery in Chicago.
The treatment of diseases of the retina and the vitreous body is considered one of the most complex areas in ophthalmologic surgery. Up-to-date tools and devices available to surgeons of the institution allow them to extend the possibilities of the retinal pathology diagnostics and carry out complex operations quickly and proficiently. Macular hole, epiretinal membranes, retinal detachment, diabetic retinopathy, retinal and vitreous hemorrhages are treated by vitreoretinal surgery.
