An Overview of the SuperSight Surgery Procedure
With topical anesthesia you will be awake during the operation. This may simply consist of eye drop solution into the eye.
You might be able to see a bright light from operating microscope. Two hours before the operation, you will be given eye drops to enlarge the pupil.
During the operation you will be asked to keep your head still, and lie as flat as possible. The operation normally takes 20-30 minutes for one eye.
Most the natural lens is removed by a technique called “Phacoemulsification”. The surgeon makes a very small cut in the eye, softens the lens with ultrasound waves and removes it through a small tube. The back layer of the lens is left behind. An artificial lens (implant) is then inserted to replace the natural lens.

Bangkok Pattaya Hospital (BPH) pride ourselves on providing patient-centered care and being strongly committed to delivering the best medical attention possible. We found that most of our refractive surgery customers were having similar demands and expectations including simple procedures, minimum pain, wishing to the best possible visual outcome. But each individual has different basic knowledge about the procedure, roles of patient cooperation and how to prevent the possible risks and complications.
A holistic approach was introduced for each individual to serve the actual needs of each person. The SuperSight Surgery (SSS) Center came up with the conclusion that an innovative technology, which could replicates younger natural vision in elderly and simply answers the needs of the patients, must be integrated to the safe and comfortable medical service. By employing leading-edge lens implant technology and latest medical equipment, backed up by highly experienced ophthalmic staff and moreover, patient participation.
The SSS procedure uses topical anesthesia so the patients will be awake during operation and will be asked to keep their head still, and lie as flat as possible. Some excited or nervous patients may try to move or squeeze their eyes cause difficult and prolong procedure, follow by complications such as corneal edema, which may affect the visual outcome. Every patient has to use post-operative medications and limit some activities to prevent the risk of infection after surgery. Some patients do not follow the instructions or regimens then take risk of complication.
The review of medical records in past 16 years revealed low complication rate (~ 1%) and just the minor complications occurred but all incidents were related to poor patient compliance, which happened about a half of cases during and after operation. The multidisciplinary team emphasized that the patient participation will play important role in evolution of quality medical care, so a new strategy was developed in April 2014 to ensure the good patient compliance throughout the process of treatment.
