Cataract Surgery

We have expert surgeons who offer only the best surgical treatment for cataract removal. Experience the world through clearer and sharper vision with the help of our cataract surgeons.

What is cataract?

Clouding or opacification of the normal lens of the eye is termed as cataract. Early cataract usually starts in the 40’s or 50’s. It increases slowly and takes a long time to develop and disturb vision. Surgery is generally advised when the cataract becomes dense enough to affect your daily activities such as driving, reading, or watching television.

What are the symptoms of cataract?

The normal sharp vision decreases due to the cataract. Many patients experience blurred or dimmer vision, their reading speed slows down, more light, or higher glass powers are needed to see the same print. They may also see colored halos around lights and have difficulty in night driving

What are the risk factors of cataract?

Most commonly a cataract develops with advancing age. Diabetes, excessive sunlight exposure, previous eye surgery, trauma, steroid medications are certain other factors that can increase your risk of developing a cataract.

How is cataract diagnosed?

During the hospital visit your vision will be tested, and pressure of the eye will be measured. A detailed slit lamp examination and a dilated fundus evaluation will be done. If a cataract is found to be the cause of visual disturbance, the various options available for clearer vision will be discussed.

What is the treatment for cataract?

Corrective glasses and good lighting will help initially. When corrective glasses don’t provide clear vision the effective method of treating cataract is surgery.

During cataract surgery, the cataractous lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens.

What options of artificial lenses do we have?

If you wish to have better near and distance vision, we have 2 options.

  • Monofocal Monovision

  • Multifocal lenses

Monofocal Monovision is comfortable for many of our patients. For the first eye, we will calculate the lens power for distance or TV vision and later when operating on the second eye, we will calculate a power for near or reading vision.

Multifocal, Trifocal and Toric multifocal lenses are available for seeing near and distance with the same eye. These lenses need a healthy eye to see clearly, and special tests will be done to confirm that your eyes can support these lens functions. There will be some glare with multifocal lenses that usually lessens with time. Please inform us if you wish to find out if your eyes are suitable for these lenses. The full effect of these lenses is seen after we do surgery in both eyes.

Our state-of-the-art operation theatre is well equipped for safe surgeries. We have a competent anaesthetist who takes care of patients who have health issues like heart or lung problems and need eye surgery.
