Cataract

Cataract is the leading cause of decreased vision and blindness in our country. So common that the condition has various misconceptions about cataract and its treatment.

What Is Cataract

Cataract is clouding of the eye’s natural lens. It is a natural process of ageing. Every person gets it sooner or later. It impairs focusing of light on the retina and hence blurs vision.

What are the causes of cataract?

Factors other than ageing may cause cataract as well. Cataract sometimes occurs relatively early in life due to factors such as injury, excessive sunlight, toxic chemicals, changes in the body metabolism, drugs or secondary to other eye diseases, such as glaucoma and inflammations. There can also be hereditary predisposition to earlier occurrence of cataract.

How Cataract Affects Your Life Style:

People with cataract even when wearing glasses, typically have difficulty in-

  • Driving at night

  • Recognizing colors

  • Seeing in distance or reading

  • Need frequent changes in their glass prescription

When to Treat?

There are no medicines with proven efficacy to prevent or to treat cataract. The only effective treatment is surgical removal of cataract.
The decision to treat a cataract is reached by the eye care practitioner and the patient together. This decision is based on the degree to which the cataract is impairing vision and the effect of the impairment on the patient’s quality of life. Diabetes, hypertension and other general health problems are not a contraindication for cataract surgery. The cataract need not mature for its surgical removal.

What is the recommended treatment for cataract?

There is no other treatment for cataract - except surgery. There are two treatment options available for cataract.

  • Extra capsular cataract extraction (ECCE) or conventional method

  • Phacoemulsification with foldable IOL (Modern method)

ECCE (Conventional Method)

  • Requires an incision of 0-12 mm

  • The surgeon removes the clouded lens in one piece.

  • A hard rigid lens is implanted

  • Multiple stitches are required

  • Increased risk of postoperative distorted vision and complication.

Phacoemulsification

Today’s cataract surgery is a marvel of medical technology. Often it is performed as an outpatient procedure.

  • It is the latest and most sophisticated method of removing a cataract.

  • In the surgical procedure the clouded cataractous lens is extracted by fragmenting it into tiny pieces with ultrasound energy and aspirated out with a suction device.

  • Cataract is removed through a small self sealing wound.

  • There are no sutures applied on the eye.

Why Phacoemulsification?


Reasons to go for Phacoemulsification

  • Stitchless.

  • Bloodless.

  • Painless.

  • Shorter overall duration of surgery.

  • More controlled surgery.

  • Early rehabilitation.

  • Less post operative discomfort.

  • Less induced astigmatism.

  • Minimum post operative restrictions.

  • Perfect early restoration of vision

  • More satisfied patient and surgeon.

Who are the candidates for Phacoemulsification


Phacoemulsification can be done in any situation except in some very advanced hard cataracts.

Sooner the better Consult your doctor if you are above 40 years with the following symptoms.

  • Blurring or dimness of vision for distance and near

  • Sensitivity to light and glare.

  • Feeling of “Film” over the eyes.

  • Frequent changing of glasses.

Foldable Intraocular Lenses

Cataract extraction by Phacoemulsification through a 2.8 mm incision and implanting a foldable intraocular lens is a definite technological advancement and a giant leap towards technological excellence.

The lens is injected into the eye through a small opening and it opens up within the eye like a flower.

Advantages

  • Wound healing is very fast.

  • Wound stability is far better since the entire surgery in done through a very small keyhole opening.

  • Induced astigmatism is minimal.

  • Decreases glare because of the superior surface quality of the lens.

Multifocal Intraocular Lenses

It is the latest advancement in cataract surgery by which the foldable intraocular lens takes care of distance vision, Intermediate vision and near vision. So that most often patient can perform all his activities without any external aid.

  • It increases the depth of foldable intraocular lens.

  • Has all the advantages of foldable intraocular lens.

  • Is the first and only lens that can potentially restore a full range of vision for cataract patients.

Most cataract patients regain near normal vision after cataract surgery.

  • Have your eyes examined regularly, especially after the age of 40.

  • Recognize cataract symptoms.

  • Seek prompt treatment.

  • Consult your eye surgeon.

Only the eye surgeon can determine the type of lens best suited for the patient depending on the general health of the eye.
