A cataract is an eye disorder characterized by the clouding of the natural eye lens. The lens has proteins and fibers in the eye that are clear and allow the passage of light. With age or due to some other reason, like injury, diabetes, etc, the proteins and fibers may start to clump together, resulting in the clouding of the lens.
This will prevent the light from passing through the eye lens and affect vision. If not addressed on time, the clouding will continue to progress, and the patient may risk blindness. The only treatment for cataracts is undergoing cataract surgery.
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 Gurgaon, as it is the only effective treatment.

Through these examinations, the ophthalmologist determines to which extent the cataract has progressed and what would be the best technique to remove it.
The different types of cataract surgery are explained below-

Most people with cataracts usually experience improved vision after the surgery. However, there are some common problems that can occur after cataract surgery –
Get medical assistance as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary complications.
No. There is no other treatment method available for cataracts. It is an irreversible process that cannot be solved with the help of medications. Thus, you will need surgical treatment to cure cataracts permanently.
Glaucoma and cataracts are two different conditions. Glaucoma affects the optic nerve due to excessive eye pressure. Unlike this, cataracts develop in the eye lens due to the clumping of proteins. These conditions affect different components of the eye and hence have different symptoms and treatment options.
Yes. Cataract surgery in Gurgaon is covered under health insurance plans. It is a procedure that is medically necessary to prevent permanent blindness. You only need to find out whether you have enough coverage to cover the entire cost of treatment or not.
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.
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.
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. While ICL surgery involves implanting a lens to bend the light correctly on the retina to clear the vision, cataract surgery involves replacing the natural eye lens with an artificial lens. To learn more about the clear differences between these two procedures, it will be better to talk to a professional.
Cataracts cannot be managed with medications or eye drops. The only effective solution for cataracts is the surgical removal of the clouded lens and replacing it with an artificial lens.
A complicated cataract is the opacification of the eye lens due to uveitis or other forms of inflammation in the eye. It can affect the posterior, intermediate, or anterior part of the eye lens. This type of cataract is often accompanied by other ocular problems, such as posterior synechiae (adhesions between the iris and lens), anterior synechiae (adhesions between the iris and cornea), and glaucoma (excessive eye pressure).
The best lens for cataract surgery will depend on the patient’s vision and refractive errors that need to be corrected. While monofocal lenses are the ones that are most commonly used, some patients may benefit from other types of lenses. So, while you are choosing the lens, consider the following factors-
Talk to your eye doctor and discuss which type of lens can give you more realistic results in terms of vision improvement. You can book a free consultation with Pristyn Care doctors to get advanced cataract treatment in Gurgaon.
The vision quality improvement after cataract surgery is subjective to the patient’s eye health. Generally, cataract surgery outcomes are focused on the visual acuity and refractive status of the patient after the treatment.
Typically, the vision restoration is the same as before the cataract started developing in the eye. If you had refractive errors before cataract development, the vision would still be blurry. However, if you choose to get premium cataract lenses that address refractive errors, you will notice a major improvement in your vision quality.
During the recovery period, the patient is instructed to follow some tips that are essential to ensure a faster and smoother recovery. So, here are some dos and don’ts that you should follow after cataract surgery.
Some common cataract surgery complications include-
Other than these, other more serious complications can also arise if the patient fails to care for the eyes. The serious complications include-

The lens inside the human eye is made up of proteins arranged in a particular pattern. The light rays entering the eye pass through this lens and focus on the retina. At a young age, this lens remains clear and transparent. With age, the proteins start to clump together and prevent light rays from passing through. As a result, the vision becomes cloudy and blurry. There is no option that can reverse the condition. Hence, the only way to restore vision is by removing the diseased lens and implanting a new artificial lens which is only possible through surgery.
All the benefits of cataract surgery can be summed up into the following five advantages.
In Gurgaon, we have our own clinics and partnered hospitals where advanced cataract treatment is provided. Along with using modern techniques, we also provide personalized care and other benefits to the patients. Here are some of the reasons for choosing Pristyn Care.
Fortunately, cataract surgery is one of the medical procedures that make the list of treatments covered by medical insurance. In Gurgaon, most health insurance companies offer coverage (primarily partial) for the cost of getting rid of cataracts. Hence, if you have a health insurance plan, the cost of cataract surgery is easily covered. Make sure you go through the terms and conditions of the plan minutely.
The health insurance scheme may not cover the same if premium lenses are implanted inside the eye. In some cases, patients have to wait for two years from the date of the purchase to file a claim for cataract treatment. Pristyn Care’s insurance team assists the patients with the process of getting approval on the insurance claim as quickly as possible.
