Катаракта в ГерманииHow is cataract treated in Germany?

  • Every year more than 700,000 surgeries are performed in German clinics.
  • Drug treatment is prescribed only at the initial stage of cataract development, when a cloudy spot in the eye does not interfere with normal vision. However, such treatment does not relieve a person of cataracts for good, but only slows the development of eye disease.
  • The only effective method of treating cataracts is to remove the clouded lens and replace it with an intraocular lens (IOL).
  • There are several methods for removing the clouded lens, the most innovative of which is femtolaser (contactless laser vision correction technique).
  • Cataract treatment can be conducted without hospitalization. The duration of the procedure is from 15 to 30 minutes.
  • The cost of the operation in Germany ranges from € 1,500 to € 5,000 (on one eye), depending on the clinic, the method of treatment and the type of lens.

The service is outstanding. Especially the doctors and nurses in the children's intensive care unit - they are very competent, attentive and nice. I owe them that my little miracle who had heart defect can still sit next to me!

The Eye Clinic of Bremen Mitte has 28 stationary places, an outpatient surgery department, 3 operating rooms and a diagnostic center.

Ophthalmic surgeons specialize in removing cataracts not only in adults, but also in infants. During their stay in the hospital, children are monitored around the clock by medical staff.

The cloudy lens of the eye is replaced by:

  • neutral folding lens;
  • a monofocal lens;
  • multifocal lens;
  • lens for correction of astigmatism and others.


The diagnosis includes a mandatory examination of the ophthalmologist, as well as a number of other tests. The duration of preoperative diagnosis is from 3 days.

Consultation of an ophthalmologist 400 - 500 €
Slit lamp examination

The main method of treatment is an operation to remove cataracts. The clinic uses a modern phacoemulsifier (laser device), which gently affects the skin of the eye. All manipulation occurs through a 2.2 mm cut. Within a few hours after the operation, the patient perceives colors and contrasts better.

During a short operation (about 20 minutes), a local anesthetic is applied in the form of eye drops. Alternatively, retrobulbar anesthesia (injection) or endotracheal anesthesia (in the form of gas).
