Cataract (Motiyabind) Surgery Procedure

Cataract surgery, also known as lens replacement surgery, involves replacing the clouded lens with an artificial lens. The clouded parts of the natural eye lens are removed safely by using phacoemulsification or a laser machine. Then the intraocular lens (cataract lens), commonly called IOL is placed inside the hollow cavity of the lens to provide clear vision. 

At Pristyn Care, we use the following techniques to treat cataracts-


Microincision cataract surgery is one of the most commonly used approaches for cataract removal. In this technique, a very small incision, less than 1.8 mm is created to access the eye lens, break it down, and extract it. Then the IOL is implanted in the eye to provide clear vision. 

It is a safe and effective procedure with more than a 98% success rate and minimal complications. The recovery after microincision cataract surgery is also quick with negligible chances of developing surgically induced astigmatism. 


Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery (FLACS) is an advanced form of cataract operation. A femtosecond laser is used to make an incision in the cornea and to break down the clouded part of the eye lens. The laser makes it safer and quicker to extract the lens with precision. Then the IOL is implanted in the eye (or both eyes) to restore the vision. 

If you have been diagnosed with any type of cataract, you can book a consultation with the best cataract surgeon in Nagpur and discuss the treatment plan in detail.

Is cataract surgery painful?

No, cataract surgery is not painful at all. Numbing eye drops are used before the surgery to ensure that you won’t feel any pain. The effect of these drops wears out after a few hours.

How long does it take to recover from cataract surgery?

The pain, discomfort, irritation in the eyes, and other after-effects of surgery usually improve within 1-2 days. The full recovery may take 3 to 4 weeks. The doctor provides a new prescription for the eyes only after the healing is complete.

What is the difference between a mature and immature cataract?

A mature cataract is denser than an immature cataract. The symptoms involve blurry vision, double vision, glares, and halos around the light sources. An immature cataract only causes minor vision problems and doesn’t affect the quality of the life of the individual. Mature cataract symptoms are much worse and very likely to affect the individual’s quality of life. Even reading becomes difficult when the cataract matures. Cataract surgery is usually recommended at this stage.

Is cataract surgery covered under insurance?

Cataract surgery is covered by all health insurance policies and costs around Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 1,00,000 approx. These are some terms and conditions that may vary from one insurance company to another. Therefore, it is always advised to talk to the insurance provider beforehand and have a clear understanding of the terms and conditions.

Different Types of Cataract Surgery in Nagpur

Most cataracts are age-related, i.e., they occur due to the changes in the eye that occur as you get older. The most common types of cataracts are- 

1: Nuclear Cataract 

As the name signifies, this type of cataract starts to form in the nucleus of the lens, i.e., the middle part. The lens turns densely yellow to brown and clouds the vision to an extent that it becomes difficult to distinguish between different shades of color. 

2: Cortical Cataract 

The cortical cataract affects the edges of the lens first and then progresses to the nucleus. It begins as whitish streaks in the lens that interfere with the light passing through. 

3: Posterior Subcapsular Cataract 

This type of cataract affects the back of the lens and starts as a small, opaque area. It falls directly in the path of light and reduces the nearby vision along with other symptoms, such as glares or halos. This type of cataract progresses very quickly. 

Besides age-related degradation of eye health, cataracts can arise due to other reasons. Based on these reasons, cataracts are further categorized into the following types- 

  • Congenital cataracts arise in children due to some trauma, genetic factors, or intrauterine infection. 
  • Traumatic cataract forms due to some injury, such as burn, chemical, or splinter in the eye. They may take years to show visible signs or may appear right away. 
  • Radiation cataract is caused due to excessive UV exposure or as a side-effect of radiation therapy for cancer. 
  • Secondary cataract is the type that occurs due to another condition or as a result of medical treatment. 

At Pristyn Care, we provide treatment for all types of cataracts and help people preserve the gift of sight.

How is a cataract diagnosed?

Cataract diagnosis involves a series of tests that are done to accurately measure the severity of cataracts and other eye conditions. In most cases, cataracts can be detected with a dilation test performed during a routine eye exam. Other tests that may be conducted prior to the surgery include- 

  • Visual Acuity Test– It is performed with the help of an eye chart that has a series of letters. Each eye is tested to determine if your vision is getting impaired or not. 
  • Slit-lamp Examination- This test allows the eye specialist to see eye components under magnification. The slit lamp illuminates the cornea, iris, and lens. Thus, the doctor can detect the protein deposits on the lens clearly. 
  • Retinal Exam- The doctor puts eye drops for pupil dilation and examines the lens to look for signs of cataracts with the help of an ophthalmoscope. 

Besides the above-mentioned tests, some additional testing may also be required, including- 

  • Biometry or IOLs workup to check the power of the lens required 
  • B-scan or ultrasound to identify the maturation stage of cataract 
  • Pentacam test to determine the correct position for lens placement
  • Specular microscopy to detect corneal diseases that may affect the outcome of cataract surgery

How to prepare for Cataract Surgery?

The cataract doctor will guide you at every step during the treatment. The doctor will explain what the surgery entails during the initial consultation and prepare you mentally. Other preparations that are generally done before cataract surgery involve the following- 

  • Getting the eyes tested thoroughly to identify other eye disorders. 
  • Determining which type of intraocular lens is appropriate for your eyes. 
  • Using eye drops and other medications prescribed by the doctor. 
  • Avoid smoking and drinking completely at least a week before cataract surgery. 

On the day of surgery, the doctor may also ask you to avoid eating and drinking anything 6-8 hours prior to the surgery. 

How to prevent cataracts?

There are no studies that help to prevent cataracts. However, doctors usually suggest some things that make it possible to detect cataracts at an early stage and improve overall eye health. These things include- 

  • Having a regular eye examination to detect cataracts and other problems at early stages. 
  • Quit smoking entirely as it affects the eyes, especially the optic nerve. 
  • Manage the conditions that can lead to cataracts, such as diabetes. 
  • Take a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables to improve overall eye health. 
  • Wear sunglasses to protect the eyes from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
