The eye’s natural transparent lens becomes opaque and limits your ability to see clearly. The lens, a transparent structure in your eye, works like the lens in a camera. Just as a foggy camera lens makes everything dim, a cataract makes it hard for you to see clearly.
A comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist detects the presence and the extent of a cataract. Other conditions that could additionally compromise vision can also be detected like glaucoma , or problems involving cornea, retina and optic nerve..
Surgery is the only way a cataract can be treated. It cannot be corrected with spectacles or medicines.
Cataract surgery is a day care, microscopic surgery performed under anaesthesia eye drops or local anaesthesia. The cloudy lens is removed with an ultrasound handpiece and a permanent artificial intraocular lens is implanted. With the availability of latest techniques and advanced intraocular lenses one can get rid of specs for distance as well as near.
After cataract surgery, you can return immediately to almost all routine activities. Medication must be administered as per the instructions.
