What is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is the procedure that involves the removal of the clouded lens and replacing it with an artificial lens to preserve the vision. A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens due to protein deposition. The deposition impacts the vision as the light cannot pass through the solid deposits. As a result, the person cannot see clearly. It usually occurs in people over the age of 40 whose eye health starts to decline. 

There are no medicines that can cure cataracts or slow down their progression. Ultimately, you will need surgical removal of the clouded lens. So, if your vision is becoming foggy or blurry, get in touch with Pristyn Care and undergo cataract surgery in Bangalore, as it is the only effective treatment.

Diagnosis of Cataract

If you detect that you are having vision problems, you should consult an ophthalmologist in Mumbai without any delay. The doctor will ask about your medical history and symptoms to narrow down the problem. If the doctor suspects that you have a cataract in one or both eyes, he/she may recommend the following test.

  • Visual Acuity Test- This test helps the doctor to check the eye power or how clearly a person can see an object.
  • Slit-lamp Exam- This test involves inspection of the cornea, iris, eye lens, and the space between the iris and the cornea.
  • Retinal Exam- It is done to see clearly on the backside of the retina. The pupils are dilated and an ophthalmoscope is used to examine the eye lens to look for signs of cataracts.
  • Tonometry Test– This test is done to check the pressure inside the eyes and to look for early signs of glaucoma, if necessary.

Procedure for Cataract Treatment

Cataract surgery is the procedure used for the treatment of cataracts.

MICS – Micro incision cataract surgery (MICS) is an approach to remove cataracts through an incision less than 1.8 mm. The purpose of the surgery is to improve the outcome of the surgery. MICS has been relied on to be a minimally traumatic surgery that offers better postoperative outcomes. In this sophisticated cataract surgery, a high degree of surgical precision and innovation is used.

Advantages of MICS include:

  • Smaller incision
  • Decreased chances of surgically induced astigmatism
  • Faster recovery of vision
  • Faster healing

FLACS – Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is a recent development in the field of cataract surgery. FLACS carries lesser risks compared to non-FLACS small incision phacoemulsification cataract surgery. Compared to manual techniques, FLACS can offer a greater level of precision and repeatability for certain tissue planes.

When to consider cataract surgery?

As the clouding on the lens increases, it becomes harder for the individual to carry out normal activities. Normally, when a cataract becomes mature, it becomes opaque to a great extent and makes it difficult for the doctor to examine the back of the eye as well.

So, if you have a cataract in one or both eyes, you should consider undergoing cataract surgery in Bangalore at the hands of the most experienced surgeons based on the answers to the following questions-

  • Can you see while working on the computer/laptop?
  • Can you drive properly?
  • Is it difficult to read even with the help of glasses or spectacles?
  • Are you able to watch TV, cook, shop, or climb stairs?
  • Is your vision degrading or affecting your regular life?
  • Do bright lights make it harder for you to see?

If you have been experiencing issues while performing these or similar activities, it is a sign that the clouding on the eye lens is becoming denser and you need proper treatment as soon as possible. For proper assessment, you can consult with the best cataract surgeon in Bangalore by getting in touch with Pristyn Care.

What are the risks associated with cataract surgery?

Eye surgeries are usually performed by taking extensive safety measures to avoid the potential risks and complications. Still, some people do experience some side effects in the eye, such as-

  • Inflammation
  • Infection
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Drooping eyelids
  • Dislocation of artificial lens
  • Retinal detachment
  • Glaucoma
  • Secondary cataract
  • Vision loss

Most of these complications can be mitigated by the surgeon. That’s why, Pristyn Care has a highly experienced team of the best cataract surgeons in Bangalore. The risks and complications are higher in people who have other eye conditions, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration. To minimize the risks, the surgeon usually performs a thorough diagnosis and evaluates the eyes to choose the best technique and lens for cataract surgery.

How to prepare for cataract treatment?

The preparation for cataract surgery doesn’t involve a wide variety of tasks. The doctor will suggest few things, such as-

  • Don’t eat or drink anything 12 hours before the surgery.
  • Stop taking medicines that can increase the risks during or after the procedure.
  • Let your doctor know if you have any other health problems, such as prostate problems.
  • Use antibiotic eye drops prescribed by the doctor one or two days before the surgery.

These recommendations are made by the doctor to reduce the chances of complications. Therefore, it is important that you follow these tips properly.

A week before the procedure, the doctor will also perform a painless ultrasound test to measure the shape and size of the eye to determine the right type of lens implant.

How is the best cataract lens chosen for the patient?

As specified above, cataract surgery involves the replacement of the natural eye lens with an artificial one, known as Intraocular lenses (IOLs). These lenses come in different varieties and also have additional features that are beneficial for the patient. There are some standard lenses that are implanted in the eye that allow the patient to see as clearly as before.

Along with standard lenses, there are premium lenses that allow the surgeon to address refractive errors, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism as well. These premium lenses include multifocal lenses, toric lenses, monovision lenses, extended-depth-of-vision lenses, etc.

The cataract surgeon understands the patient’s lifestyle and requirements to find out which type of lens would be most suitable. After a proper evaluation and discussion with the patient, the final decision is made and the surgeon also gives an estimate of the entire treatment.

What to expect after cataract removal surgery?

Once the procedure is done, you will be transferred to your room, where you’ll rest for the next few hours. Immediately after the surgery, your vision will be blurry as the lens will take some time to adjust. The colors may also seem brighter as you’ll be looking through a clear lens instead of the yellow/brown tinted one.

You may feel slight itching and discomfort in the eyes after the surgery which is normal. But make sure that you don’t rub or press the eyes. The doctor will ask you to wear an eyepatch or protective shield after the surgery for a couple of days.

The complete healing of the eyes takes 6-8 weeks. And throughout this period, most of the side effects that appear as a result of the surgery will disappear and you will be able to see clearly.

Potential Complications After Cataract Surgery

Surgery is the only effective treatment for cataracts. It restores vision successfully in the majority of people who get the treatment. However, in many people, secondary cataracts develop after the surgery. The medical term for secondary cataract is posterior capsule opacification (PCO). It happens when the back of the lens capsule (the part of the lens that was not removed and supports the lens implant) becomes cloudy and leads to vision loss.

Fortunately, this opacification can be treated with a minor procedure performed with the help of YAG (yttrium-aluminum-garnet) laser. Other than this complication, there are also rare chances of retinal detachment or increased eye pressure, which can also be resolved. Thus, in the long-term, cataract surgery will allow you to see clearly for a long time until you develop some other condition due to old age.
