On April 11th, Ms. Kuster from the United States came to the ophthalmology department of Xi'an International Medical Center Hospital for a follow-up examination after cataract surgery. The clear and bright world after the surgery left her amazed.

Ms. Kuster is from the United States and currently works as a foreign teacher at an international school in Xi'an. Three weeks ago, she accidentally discovered that her right eye vision had decreased and affected her normal life. After being recommended by a colleague, she heard that our hospital is an international comprehensive hospital, so she came to our ophthalmology department for treatment.

After a series of examinations by ophthalmologists, Ms. Kuster was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes accompanied by refractive errors. Director Ni Wei recommended surgical treatment. The difference between visual impairment caused by cataracts and those caused by myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism can only be treated through surgery. If surgery is not performed, nothing can be done.

During the consultation process, Ms. Kuster had smooth communication with the doctor and saw that the medical staff were carefully conducting various examinations. In order not to affect her normal work and life in the future, Ms. Kuster decided to undergo cataract surgery.

After completing preoperative examinations and eliminating surgical contraindications, Director Ni Wei led an ophthalmic team to perform left and right eye cataract phacoemulsification and intraocular lens implantation for Ms. Kuster. The surgery lasted less than 10 minutes and made Ms. Kuster exclaim "Amazing"! Through cataract surgery, Ms. Kuster's binocular vision improved from 0.15 to 1.0.

"Modern cataract surgery is no longer just about restoring vision, but can also solve problems such as myopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia at the same time." Director Ni Wei introduced that the artificial lens implanted in cataract surgery is like a miniature glasses, replacing the previously cloudy lens, allowing light to re-enter the eye and correcting optical defects, achieving the goal of removing the lens after surgery.

Ms. Kuster said that the medical experience this time was great, and the treatment effect was particularly satisfactory. I am now fully able to work and live with my glasses removed. "I have had a hip joint surgery before, which made my mobility difficult and my vision worse. During my hospitalization in the ophthalmology department, the medical staff took meticulous care of my diet and life, making me feel warm in a foreign land. Thank you very much to all the ophthalmology medical staff. Your medical level is high, and the service is good. I like you all!"!

To express gratitude, Ms. Kuster personally brought a banner to the ophthalmology team. Although she didn't speak Chinese, the banner she brought, the smile on her face, and the thumbs up already expressed recognition and praise for our ophthalmology team.
