Cataract surgery at the LZW:
Straightforward and painless outpatient procedure
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye, which develops with advancing age. If you look closely, you can see a light-grey colouring behind the pupil, hence the German name “Grauer Star”.
A cataract is usually the result of the natural ageing process and associated metabolic changes. But genetic predisposition, UV radiation, or diabetes may also play a role.
Typical for cataracts is the continuous decline in visual acuity and increased sensitivity to light or glare.
Cataracts can be treated by surgery, usually without any problems: The natural clouded lens is replaced by an artificial lens implant (intraocular lens) and visual acuity is restored.
LZW only uses premium lenses
This procedure is one of the most frequently performed eye operations. At the LZW we have an excellent success rate and a very low rate of complications.
The LZW only uses advanced technology and premium lenses. Our patients already have excellent vision after only a few days.
The operation is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia, and is absolutely painless. We also only operate on one eye per appointment. The pleasant atmosphere at our clinic helps you relax throughout the entire procedure.
Important: You should regularly attend screening appointments; timely diagnosis is always helpful. At the LZW we also offer screening appointments.

Cost of other services
It is difficult to provide a flat-rate price for all services provided at the LZW. They are subject to individual diagnoses and examinations, as well as what is medically advisable and necessary.
In our opinion, clinics or practices that charge a fixed price without detailing individual diagnoses and examinations are acting unprofessionally. If the costs and the expenses for treatment or surgery are higher than the previously quoted fixed price, they have to make savings in other areas. Unfortunately, this will mainly be at the expense of patient safety or hygiene.
For us, hygiene, safety, and satisfaction of our patients are top priority. When providing you with a quote, this will always on the basis of an individual examination and diagnosis.
