Cataract Surgery


Cataract treatment is like opening the curtains to let the sunshine in on a cloudy day. It's a transformative journey towards clearer vision and brighter days ahead! During cataract surgery, your skilled ophthalmologist gently removes the cloudy lens that's been casting a shadow on your sight and replaces it with a clear, artificial lens. It's like giving your eyes a brand-new lens, allowing light to dance freely onto your retinas once again! And the best part? The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and offers a swift return to enjoying life's colorful moments. With cataract treatment, you're not just restoring your vision; you're embracing a future filled with clarity, brightness, and endless possibilities.

What is Cataract?

Cataracts occur when the lens of the eye becomes cloudy due to proteins clumping together over time, leading to blurred vision. They can develop gradually over years or progress rapidly, impacting vision and causing symptoms like blurry vision and sensitivity to light.

While often associated with aging, cataracts can also affect younger individuals due to factors like trauma or medications.

Thankfully, cataracts are treatable with surgery, where the cloudy lens is replaced with an artificial one, restoring clear vision and improving quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cataract surgery is typically a quick procedure, often taking around 15 to 30 minutes per eye. However, additional time may be needed for pre-operative preparations and post-operative recovery.

Most patients report minimal discomfort during cataract surgery, as it is performed under local anaesthesia to numb the eye and surrounding tissues. After the procedure, any discomfort is usually mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

While some patients may still require glasses for certain activities such as reading or driving, many experience improved vision and reduced dependence on glasses after cataract surgery. Your eye care professional can advise you on the best options for optimizing your visual outcomes.

Most patients can resume normal activities, including work and light exercise, within a day or two after cataract surgery. However, it's essential to follow your surgeon's instructions regarding post-operative care and any activity restrictions.

The artificial intraocular lenses (IOLs) used in cataract surgery are designed to be permanent and typically last a lifetime. However, in some cases, patients may develop secondary issues such as clouding of the lens capsule (posterior capsular opacification), which can be easily treated with a simple laser procedure.

There are several types of intraocular lenses (IOLs) used in cataract surgery, each offering different benefits and features. Monofocal IOLs are the most common and provide clear vision at one distance, usually far or near, requiring the use of glasses for other distances. Multifocal and accommodating IOLs are designed to provide clear vision at multiple distances, reducing the need for glasses for activities like reading and driving. Toric IOLs are specifically designed to correct astigmatism in addition to addressing cataracts. Your eye care professional will help determine the most suitable IOL for your individual needs and lifestyle.
