Cataract Surgery

+ More
  • Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.

  • 2 - 3 days

    Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.

  • 1 - 2 weeks

    The ophthalmologist may want to arrange a follow up appointment a few days after the procedure, but you can discuss with them if you need to travel earlier.

    I discovered CODET after searching the web for vision clinics that could install a more advanced phakic intraocular lens than is available in the United States. I made the right choice! The service is prompt, professional, diligent, and comes with minimal paperwork. The staff have been unfailingly respectful, attentive, and patient. The facilities are modern and high-tech. Communication with CODET is exceptional; they even use WhatsApp! At one point, to help solve a problem, a doctor came in on her day off just to run a special test on me. Finally, CODET 's courtesy driver has been incredibly accommodating with my various travel arrangements.

    I wholeheartedly recommend CODET to anybody looking for a world-class eye clinic.

    My husband had the PRK procedure done. The doctor was honest with us about the best procedure for my husband, even if it meant them doing a less costly procedure. We felt we could trust Dr. Chayet. The facility is well maintained. Front desk customer service was friendly and professional. Miss Rubi was able to communicate with us in English and answer all of our questions, she really went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and she treated every other patient the same way. Every time we have been back for a check up, miss Rubi remembers us like if it was yesterday. This procedure has been life changing for my husband. We reccomened this place to our friends and family.

    I first came to code at the age of 16 to see if I can get lasik surgery but at first they said I really didnt need it and when I was a little older I can come back and try again. I got my procedure done at 20 and 3 years later, my vision is still great. A staff who cares and wants to give you quality service. Highly recommend . Very easy to find if traveling over border as well.
