Why Cataract Surgery Is A Better Option?
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 onto 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 the vision is by removing the diseased lens and implanting a new artificial lens which is only possible during surgery.
Top 5 Benefits of Choosing Surgery For Cataracts
All the benefits of cataract surgery can be summed into the following five advantages.
- Better vision- As the primary objective of cataract surgery is to remove the cloudy lens from the eye and replace it with a new one, the restored vision is clear and improved. The light rays are able to reach the retina easily.
- Improved quality of life– Due to the clouding of the vision, cataract patients are unable to perform even the simplest tasks such as knitting, reading, watching TV, etc. without putting any extra strain on the eyes. In other words, cataract surgery makes it easier for patients to perform such tasks without putting extra pressure on the eyes.
- Maintenance of eye health– Now that cataract patients have to make extra efforts to see objects, it makes the eye prone to other problems such as glaucoma. With cataract surgery, the risk of such a problem occurring decreases considerably.
- Increased independence– Often, cataract patients require assistance in very day-to-day activities, which makes them dependent on others. After the cataract surgery, such dependency is reduced to zero.
- Lesser chances of any accidents or injuries– People with poor vision are prone to running into a glass door or missing out on a pebble. The surgery reduces the chances of such accidents or injuries.

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 Gurgaon 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.
