What is Cataract?

Cataract is the most common eye problem that occurs in elderly people. It is a medical condition in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. If you have cataract, the lens of the eyes becomes foggy, or looks like a dusty car windshield. Cataracts are of three types:

Subcapsular cataract - This cataract occurs at the back of the lens. People suffering from diabetes or those who take high doses of steroid medications are at a greater risk of suffering from subcapsular.

Nuclear cataract - This form of cataract forms deep in the central zone of the lens. Aging is the most common contributing factor of this type of cataract.

Cortical cataract - In this form of cataract, white opacity starts to form on the periphery of the lens. Cortical cataract mostly occurs in the lens cortex.

Cataract (Motiyabind) Surgery Procedure

MICS – Microincision cataract surgery (MICS) is an approach to remove cataract through 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 carry 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are cataracts painful?

Cataracts are not hazardous to the health of the person or the eye. If the cataract becomes hypermature, or completely white, they may cause inflammation, headache, and some pain. A hypermature cataract that causes pain or inflammation needs to be removed.

Are cataracts genetically inherited?

Generally, cataracts are developed as a result of aging or injury of the eye lens. However, a few clinical studies revealed that about 8.3% to 25% of cataract cases around the world are hereditary cases. Book an appointment with our Ophthalmologists to know more about cataracts and other eye diseases.

Can cataracts cause glaucoma?

The main cause of glaucoma is an increase in eye pressure or intraocular pressure. So, cataracts are the most common contributing factors in causing glaucoma by increasing eye pressure and damage to the optic nerve. Cataracts also narrow the drainage angle and elevate the severity of glaucoma.

How to prevent a cataract without any surgery?

Change in the diet Avoid or quit smoking Protection from ultraviolet radiation Control your blood sugar Regular eye check-up

What is the difference between mature and immature cataracts?

An immature cataract is a cataract that is incomplete, i.e., the clouding on the lens is not complete yet and the cortex is also clear. A mature cataract is one that is completely opaque. It is also known as a white cataract.

Is red-eye after cataract surgery common?

Yes. It is normal for the eye to appear red after cataract surgery. You may also feel other symptoms like grittiness or itchiness in the eye with some fluid discharge. These are common symptoms that will go away on their own as your eyes heal after the surgery.

What is the difference between ICL surgery and cataract surgery?

ICL (Implantable Collamer Lens) surgery is done for correction of refractive errors and cataract surgery is done to treat cataracts, i.e., cloudiness of the natural eye lens.

To learn more about the clear differences between these two procedures, it will be better to talk to a professional.

What are the different types of Cataract Surgery?

All types of cataract surgery involve the replacement of the natural lens with an artificial implant, which is known as an intraocular lens (IOL). In Faridabad and every other city across India, the following techniques are available to perform cataract operations:

  • Phacoemulsification Cataract Surgery- It is one of the most common techniques used for cataract treatment. During phacoemulsification, the surgeon makes an incision around 2 to 3 mm with the help of an ultrasonic probe. The probe breaks up the cataract using vibration and removes the fragments with a suction device. Then a foldable lens is inserted into the eye through the incision.
  • Manual Extracapsular Cataract Surgery (MECS)- MECS is a technique that involves making a large incision, around 9 to 13mm long to remove the clouded eye lens and replace it with the IOL.
  • Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS)- It is a variation of MECS in which a smaller V-shaped incision is made in the eye. The incision becomes wider as it reaches the lens. While the outer incision is around 6.5 mm, the inner incision is around 11 mm.
  • Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS)- As the name suggests, micro-incision cataract surgery is done through a 1.8 mm incision which is even smaller than small incision cataract surgery (MSICS). The rest of the procedure stays the same. The clouded lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.
  • Femtosecond Laser-assisted Cataract Surgery (FLACS)- It is the latest technique to perform cataract surgery. A femtosecond laser is used to make the incision and the laser further divides and softens the cataract. Due to this, a minimal amount of phacoemulsification energy is required to remove the clouded lens.
  • Intracapsular Cataract Surgery- This type of cataract surgery involves the removal of the entire lens and the lens capsule from the eye. It requires a big incision and has many risks and complications. Therefore, it is rarely performed nowadays.

Out of all these types of cataract surgery, each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Not to mention that each technique has some side effects and chances of complications. Therefore, when you consult a cataract doctor, he/she diagnoses the condition thoroughly and then suggests the appropriate technique which is safe for the patient.

How to choose the best cataract lens for you?

The best thing about cataract surgery is that once the lens is replaced, the results are long lasting. And there are different types of lenses for cataract surgery, each of which has unique benefits. These lenses are widely known as intraocular lenses and are classified into the following types:

  • Standard Lens (Monofocal)- This type of lens addresses the vision problems at a specific distance, i.e., either nearby vision or distant vision. You can choose between the two depending on the activities you perform on a regular basis. Monofocal lenses are usually spherical, i.e., the surface is uniformly curved, allowing the patient to see clearly at one distance only.
  • Multifocal IOLs- These lenses can help the patient to see distant and nearby objects clearly at the same time. These are considered premium lenses because they have both multifocal and accommodative properties that allow the patient to see at different ranges at the same time. Multifocal lenses are aspherical, therefore, they can correct presbyopia and astigmatism at the same time.
  • Toric Lens (IOLs)- This type of lens is specially made to correct astigmatism in cataract patients. There is a special type of toric lens as well that provides extended depth-of-focus. These lenses are slightly more expensive than other types as well.
  • Monovision Lens- People often confuse monovision lenses with monofocal lenses. There is a significant difference between these two. While a monofocal lens provides clear vision at a distance only, a monovision lens is implanted in both eyes to correct vision problems. An intraocular lens is implanted in one eye that provides nearby vision and another lens is implanted in the other eye that provides distance vision.

The doctor does an accurate diagnosis to determine the appropriate power of the IOL and provide desired results to the patient in terms of refractive outcomes after the surgery. You will have a detailed discussion with the doctor about these types of lenses for cataract surgery before proceeding with the treatment. The specialist will also provide you information about the best cataract lens brands in India, such as Bausch & Lomb, Freshlook, Acuvue, Alcon, Johnson & Johnson, Zeiss, etc. to make the decision.

Precautions After Cataract Surgery

Many people don’t realize this, but post-surgery care after cataract surgery plays a major role in determining how long you will need to recover. While you are being discharged from the hospital, the doctor will provide you with a guide that consists of all the dos and don’ts after cataract surgery.
