Cataract Surgery

1 . Eye works like a camera. Cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. When it becomes cloudy, you cannot see well, like looking through a very dirty window. Cataracts can develop in one or both eyes. If they develop in both eyes, one will be more severely affected than the other. A normally clear lens allows light to pass through to the back part(retina) of the eye, so that the patient can see well-defined images. If a part of the lens becomes opaque light does not pass through easily and the patient’s vision becomes blurry – like looking through cloudy water or a fogged-up window. The more opaque (cloudier) the lens becomes, the worse the person’s vision will be. Glare becomes a serious problem. Reading, driving, computer work and hobbies become difficult and eventually impossible due to diminishing vision.

2. Cataract surgery is the removal of cloudy lens and implantation of artificial intraocular lens.

3. Technology - Phacoemulsification, which uses ultrasonic waves to remove the cataract material.

4. No Pain, No Stitches. Immediate Clear vision. Bandage is applied only for a day for physical protection from any outside injury.

  • Need a bright light to read

  • Double vision in one eye

  • Fading colours

6. Benefits to you

    • Reduced surgical tim 

 

7. Customized lens selection

  • Are you working at computer?

  • Do you want to get rid of glasses?

  • Do you want to get rid of reading glasses?

Monofocal IOLs allows cataract surgery patients to see clearly within a range. About 95% of people who receive standard IOL have their vision restored to its pre-cataract state. However, most patients still require glasses for reading or distance vision and may experience some visual disturbances such as glares and halos under certain light.Select multifocal and advance intraocular lens to eliminate need of reading glasses.
