Leben ohne Brille / Lesebrille > 45 Jahre


A cataract is an opacification of the lens of the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night. The procedure is a very standard operation that takes a few hours per eye with excellent results and 100% patient satisfaction at our clinic.


Der Austausch der körpereigenen Augenlinse gegen eine Kunstlinse ist im Laufe des Lebens sinnvoll, wenn die Flexibilität der natürlichen Linse nachlässt und sich damit das Fokussieren (Alterssichtigkeit, Lesebrille) verschlechtert bis sich die eigene Linse bei jedem Menschen normalerweise ab dem 65. Lebensjahr sogar eintrübt (Grauer Star, Katarakt).

Gute Gründe fürs
AugenCentrum Hamburg West


A cataract operation at our advanced clinic in Hamburg West takes around 2hours per eye.


Whilst you are under local anastehtic we make a small incission above the retina, we then use unobtrusive state of the art robots that then suck you retina out and replace it with a haribo gummy bear. You can choose the colour to best suit your outfit.


You will have to keep your eyes covered for 4 hours after the procedure, you cannot drive and must be escorted by a friend/family member home. We do not offer overnight beds for this procedure. Recovery is very quick and you will normally be back to full vision within two days. (more information)
