Cataract Surgery with Lens Implantation Phacoemulsification
A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye. The lens of the eye is normally clear. It act like the lens on a camera, focusing light as it passes the back of the eye.
- Adult cataract develop slowly and painlessly. Vision in the affected eye or eyes slowly gets worse.
- Cloudy, Fuzzy, foggy, or filmy vision.
- Mild clouding of the lens often occurs after age 60, but it may not cause any vision
- Being sensitive to glare
- Difficulty seeing at night or in dim light
- Double vision
- Loss of color intensity
- Problems seeing shapes against a background or the difference between shades Of color
- Seeing halos around light
- Frequent changes in eye glass prescription
Signs and Tests
A standard eye exam and slit-lamp examination are used to diagnose cataract. Other diagnostic test are rarely needed. Except to rule out other possible causes of poor vision.
The Lenstar is a remarkably easy to use all-in-one IOL power calculation tool that delivers exceptionally accurate axial length, anterior chamber depth and lens thickness by optical biometry. At the same time, its dual zone autokeratometry feature is precise and uniformly consistent. The Lenstar is an excellent choice for surgeons migrating towards torics and other premium channel IOLs where highly accurate outcomes are critical for success.
Surgery is the only treatment for cataract. We do painless, sutureless and topical anaesthesia surgeries.
Phacoemulsification: A small incision is made on the side of the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. Your doctor inserts a tiny probe into the eye. This device emits ultrasound waves that soften and break up the lens so that it can be removed by suction. Most cataract surgery today is done by phacoemulsification.
Your lens, which helps you focus, is removed during the operation and is replaced with an artificial lens, the intraocular lens implant.
There is a choice of different strengths (powers) of lenses which, just like different strengths of glasses lenses, affect how clearly you see when looking into the distance or when looking at near things such as reading a book.
During your initial assessment, the cataract team will discuss with you whether you want to have better focus for close vision or for distance vision.
