Cataract Surgeon Cape Town – Serving patients seeking cataract surgery in Cape Town and the surrounding area
Johann Krüger, MMed, FCS, FRCS, is a board-certified ophthalmologist treating patients at Tygervalley Eye and Laser Centre, located just north of Cape Town, South Africa. Dr. Krüger is known by his patients and peers as an innovator in the field of ophthalmology, having pioneered several surgical techniques designed to correct the vision of patients who were previously told they were not suitable candidates for vision correction treatment. Dr. Krüger has decades of experience performing a wide range of vision correction treatments and eye care services, including cataract surgery using premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs). At Tygervalley Eye and Laser Centre, the Cape Town cataract surgeon and his trusted staff deliver the highest-quality patient care and exceptional vision correction results.
Dr. Krüger performs leading-edge “micro-incision, no-stitch” cataract surgery with advanced IOL options. To start the procedure, he makes an extremely small incision in the eye, through which the cataract-diseased eye lens is removed. In a step called “phacoemulsification,” Dr. Krüger uses ultrasound energy to break up the cataractous lens for easy removal. The cataract surgeon then gently flushes or suctions the lens fragments from the eye. The cloudy lens is replaced with a traditional or premium IOL to restore clear vision after surgery. At Tygervalley Eye and Laser Centre, patients can choose from a variety of IOL options, including astigmatism-correcting toric lenses and multifocal IOLs that allow individuals to see clearly at multiple distances.
