What is Cataract Surgery?

Cataract surgery is the surgical treatment of cataracts. It involves the removal of the defective or cloudy eye lens and replacing it with an artificial lens.

A cataract is a disease that usually occurs with age but can also occur due to other reasons like eye injury or genetic factors. It cannot be reversed or treated through medications. And if not treated on time, cataracts can even cause permanent blindness. Surgery is the only permanent solution for cataracts.

If you have been diagnosed with a cataract in one or both eyes and are seeking treatment in Chennai, you can contact Pristyn Care and get advanced treatment for all types of cataracts.

Diagnosis

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

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 healingFLACS - 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.

Types of Lens Implants You Can Choose For Cataract Surgery

Before the intraocular lenses were invented, the patients had to rely on glasses permanently to see clearly. The lenses changed that and allowed the surgeon to replace the natural lens with an artificial one safely.

Currently, there are many types of lenses available in the market each with its own set of benefits. You can choose the one that suits your requirements and budget accordingly.

  • Aspheric IOLs- They are traditional intraocular lenses with an aspherical optical design that mimics the natural eye lens. It closely matches the shape and quality of the eye lens and provider sharper vision after curing cataracts.
  • Toric IOLS- These are premium intraocular lenses that can correct astigmatism along with cataracts. Such lenses have different powers at different meridians of the eyes and enable the surgeon to adjust the lens orientation for optimal results.
  • Accommodating IOLs- These lenses have the ability to expand the range of clear vision according to eye movements. It means that they improve the focusing power of the eye to provide better near vision, but the level of magnification is slightly low.
  • Multifocal IOLs- This type of lens is commonly used for the treatment of presbyopia. It cures cataracts and also helps to achieve a better vision for nearby as well as distant objects. These lenses have different sections to adjust the vision according to the patient’s eye movements.
  • Monovision IOLs- This is a type of IOLs that fully corrects the refractive error in one eye and makes the other mildly nearsighted intentionally. With this, one eye can see distant objects, and the other eye will allow the patient to see nearby objects.

You can learn more about these types of lens implants from a cataract doctor and choose the one that suits your lifestyle, vision requirements, and budget.
