Discover the latest technology in cataract treatment at Vithas Xanit


Cataracts are the one of the most commonly occurring eye conditions amongst the population, especially in those over the age of 65, with more than 50% of people affected. The most common symptoms of this disease include blurred vision, deteriorating night time vision, light sensitivity, the need to frequently change lens prescription, seeing colours less vividly and the need for more light when reading, all impacting on the patient’s quality of life.


However this problem now has an effective solution and Vithas Xanit International Hospital has incorporated this latest technology in cataract treatment. The hospital, in the Benalmádena area, has recently installed the Femtosecond Laser, a system used in the treatment of cataracts which allows cataracts to be corrected during one surgical procedure, individually adapted to each patient’s problem. The minimally invasive technique does not required the cutting instruments used in earlier systems. The laser is computer assisted which increases precision even further and enables a quicker recovery. Quality of sight is improved with less corneal aberrations and less astigmatism.
The laser offers further guarantees including maximum safety, with individualised programming eliminating the risk of technique related errors. It is a high precision procedure throughout causing minimal eye trauma.

According to the Ophthalmology Department at the hospital, led by Dr Cilveti, the new Femtosecond Laser also allows correction of other refractive problems such as presbyopia (age related, blurred near vision), astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia and is also used in corneal transplants for keratoconus.

Anyone who would like more information about this type of surgery can contact the Ophthalmology Department at the hospital by phone on +34 647 789 653 or visit the website
