Cataract Surgery

The clouded lens inside your eye is replaced with an artificial lens during cataract surgery. It has a high success rate when it comes to boosting your vision. The recovery time from cataract surgery might range from 2 to 6 weeks.

What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. It is the most common cause of reversible blindness.. cataract prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision.

Cataracts are foggy areas on the lens of your eye, which is a little clear disc. Our lenses are normally clear glass while we're young, allowing us to see through them. They grow frosted, like bathroom glass, as we become older, and they begin to impair our vision.

The only treatment for cataracts is surgical removal of the opaque lens and insertion of the intraocular lens . Nowadays, it is a very safe and effective procedure done under topical anesthesia, resulting in an improvement of vision from the first day. With correction of the vision for far and near by using special premium lenses .

Cataracts are most typically seen in people as they grow older.

Seeing through hazy lenses is similar to looking through a frosty or fogged-up window for persons with cataracts.

The majority of cataracts form slowly and do not affect your vision at first. Cataracts, on the other hand, will obstruct your vision over time.

Stronger lighting and spectacles can help you cope with cataracts at first. However, if your vision is obstructing your daily activities, you may need cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is, fortunately, a relatively safe and successful technique.

Cataracts can cause the following signs and symptoms:

  • Changes in eyeglasses or contact lens prescriptions on a regular basis.
  • Colors are fading or yellowing.
  • For reading and other tasks, brighter light is required.
  • In one eye, there is double vision.
  • Light sensitivity and glare.
  • Night vision is becoming increasingly challenging.
  • Seeing "halos" around lights.
  • The vision is clouded, hazy, or dull.
