Treatment

Treatment

Consulting an Ophthalmologist will be the best piece of advice if you are experiencing problems with your vision. During the initial consultation the eye specialist will ask about your medical history and symptoms. If the doctor suspects that you have a cataract in one or both of the eyes, you will be recommended the following tests:

  • Visual acuity test
  • Slit-lamp exam
  • Retinal exam
  • Tonometry test [on rare occasions]

Depending upon the severity and the progressive nature of your cataract, the Ophthalmologist will recommend you to undergo cataract surgery. The only effective method for treating cataracts is by undergoing surgery. Cataract surgery can be performed in the following ways:

  • PhacoemulsificationMicroincision Cataract Surgery [MICS]
  • Extracapsular Cataract Extraction [ECCE]
  • Intracapsular Cataract Extraction [ICCE]
  • Femtosecond Laser-assisted Cataract Surgery [FLACS]

Frequently Asked Questions

Which doctor should I consult for eye problems in Jaipur?

You should consult an Ophthalmologist if you are experiencing problems with your vision. These doctors are experts when it comes to both surgical and medical treatments of all kinds of eye diseases.

How much will be the cost of Cataract Surgery in Jaipur?

A Cataract Surgery may cost you anywhere from around Rs 25,000 to Rs 35,000 per eye. But, this should not be considered as an absolute cost. The overall cost will vary from person to person depending on a number of factors.

What are the factors that determine the cost of Cataract Surgery in Jaipur?

The various factors that determine the cost of Cataract Surgery in Jaipur are as follows:

  • Type and severity of the cataract
  • Method of treatment
  • Type of lenses used
  • Fees of the surgeon
  • Location and type of the hospital chosen to undergo treatment
  • Cost of medications before and after the surgery
  • Amount to be paid for diagnostic tests before and after the surgery
Can I undergo Cataract Surgery in both eyes at the same time?

Due to safety reasons, doctors usually do not perform Cataract Surgery in both eyes at once to ensure that the patient can see from one eye at least. The doctor will advise waiting for at least a month before undergoing Cataract Surgery in the second eye. The waiting period also gives the first eye enough time to heal from the after-effects of the surgery.

Can the cost of a Cataract Surgery in Jaipur be covered under insurance? 

Yes. Since Cataract Surgery is a medical necessity to prevent blindness, the entire cost of treatment can be covered under insurance in Jaipur. To learn more about the process to avail insurance, you can get in touch with us.

When should I consult an eye specialist for Cataracts in Jaipur?

You should consider consulting an eye specialist as soon as you start experiencing the following early symptoms:

  • Blurry vision
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Seeing halos
Are there any medical or non-surgical treatments for Cataracts available in Jaipur?

By far, there are no medical or non-surgical treatments available to treat cataracts. The only effective and long lasting treatment is by undergoing a Cataract Surgery that involves the replacement of the natural lens of the eye with an artificial lens.

Will I need to wear glasses after Cataract Surgery?

It is highly unlikely for you to need glasses for a clear vision if you opt for premium cataract lenses [IOLs] that address cataracts and refractive errors. However this also depends on the type of lens implants you get. In certain cases, patients use standard IOLs or monofocal IOLs. In such cases, you will have to wear glasses to have a distinctive view of different distances.

How many days should I rest after undergoing Cataract Surgery?

Usually, Ophthalmologists recommend patients take proper rest for 1 to 3 days after undergoing Cataract Surgery. Depending upon your overall health condition, the doctor will provide you with an estimate of how much rest you will need after the procedure.

Is it possible to cure cataracts without surgery?

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.

Is cataract surgery painful?

No. Cataract surgery is not painful at all, thanks to the numbing eye drops that are used before the procedure. You won’t feel any kind of sensations until the effects of these drops wear off after a few hours and the surgery will be completed.

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.

Which lens is better for cataract surgery: Indian or Imported?

It cannot be said clearly which lens will be better for a specific person as every eye is different. In some people, Indian cataract lenses may be more suitable whereas, in others, imported cataract lenses may be the ideal choice. Your doctor will help you to understand the differences between Indian and imported lenses so that you can determine which lens is best for you.

What is a presenile cataract?

A presenile cataract is the one in which the opacification of the lens or capsule occurs before the age of 40 years and all the known causes of cataracts have been ruled out.

Does diabetes increase the risk of developing cataracts?

Diabetes is known to cause cataracts and other eye problems as well. Unchecked diabetes elevates the glucose levels in the body, including the glucose present in the aqueous humor and the lens. The lens has an enzyme that automatically converts glucose to sorbitol which can build up in the lens over time, making it opaque.

Is cooking after cataract surgery safe?

Normally, the doctor will advise you to avoid cooking for at least one week after having cataract surgery. Your eyes will be more sensitive after the procedure. Therefore, it is necessary to avoid all activities that can cause stress on the eyes.

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. 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.

What food should you not eat after cataract surgery?

After cataract surgery, you should avoid eating the following foods as they are associated with poor eye health:

  • Foods that are high in sugar or refined carbohydrates, such as bread, pasta, chips, cereals, etc.
  • Fast food or junk food that is oily and spicy
  • Processed foods, such as cheese, tinned vegetables, ready-to-eat meals, etc.
Is there any homeopathic medicine for cataracts?

There are several homeopathic medicines available that can help to manage cataracts. However, you should know that these medicines can’t cure cataracts. These medicines are:

  • Calcarea carbonica
  • Calcarea fluorica
  • Causticum
  • Silicea
  • Natrum muriaticum

Before trying out these medicines, make sure that you consult your eye doctor.

Is ayurvedic medicine for cataracts effective?

Currently, there is no good evidence that proves that ayurvedic treatment is effective in treating cataracts. Many people have tried ayurvedic medicine with positive results while others didn’t get any. Therefore, the best thing to do is to consult an eye specialist and get their opinion to treat cataracts.

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 Jaipur 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 permanent. 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 with 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.

Don’ts After Cataract Surgery

  • Don’t take a shower, bath, or swim for the first 10 days after surgery.
  • Avoid washing your eyes until the doctor gives you permission to do so.
  • Avoid using shampoos or cosmetic products, too, as they may contain chemicals that can irritate the eyes.
  • Do not indulge in activities that may damage your eyes, including contact sports or activities like swimming.
  • Avoid lifting heavy weights as it may put a strain on your eyes.
  • Also, avoid coughing, sneezing, or straining during bowel movements as it may increase the pressure on the eyes.

Dos After Cataract Surgery

  • You can watch TV or other digital screens after the 3rd day of cataract surgery.
  • Do remember to use the eye drops prescribed by the doctor as directed.
  • Wear a protective eye cap throughout the day and at night to prevent dust or dirt from entering your eyes.
  • Keep the protective cap on while you are asleep to ensure that you don’t rub or poke the eye during sleep.
