CATARACT

Cataract is an inevitable part of growing old. But, the good news is that it can be treated through a hassle-free Cataract Removal Surgery. At Sharp Sight Eye Hospital, we offer safe and reliable cataract surgery through both conventional and advanced laser techniques, which assure excellent visual results. The surgery barely takes 15 minutes and during the procedure, the cataract-affected lens is removed painlessly and replaced with an artificial lens, called the Intraocular Lens (IOL).

WHAT ARE CATARACTS?

Cataracts are clouding of the natural, clear lens of the eye. It usually develops as we age, but occasionally, cataract formation may be seen in newborn babies and young ones too. These congenital cataracts could be the result of genetic tendencies, drug reaction caused during the developmental stage, eye infection, trauma or injury, etc. However, whatever may be the cause, cataract leads to a double or blurred vision making it difficult for an individual to perform his/her daily chores.

As a caution, you should never let cataract become too severe, as any delay in seeking proper and timely treatment may leave you visually impaired for the rest of your life.

RISK FACTORS FOR DEVELOPING CATARACTS INCLUDE:

  • Aging – 65 years and above
  • Prolonged use of steroids
  • Excessive exposure to UV rays
  • Diabetes
  • Eye injury/trauma
  • Alcohol abuse/ chain smoking
  • Obesity

Cataract surgery has evolved from 8mm to sub 2mm incisions. Which ensure better vision and faster recovery. MICS technology offers implantation of most advanced foldable IOLs in sub 2mm incisions.

The vision recovery post-surgery is instant and bandage-free. The patient may resume their daily chores on the same day itself!

At Sharp Sight Eye Hospital, we offer Asia’s best Stellaris machine aided MICS Cataract Surgery.

ADVANTAGES OF MICS CATARACT SURGERY

  • Faster vision recovery due to small incisions.
  • No change in the original shape of the eye. Thus, fewer chances of astigmatism and thus lesser requirement of post-operative spectacles.
  • Enhanced vision with improved IOLs
  • Faster healing even in diabetic patients.
  • Minimal postoperative restrictions.
  • Fewer follow-up visits post-surgery.
  • Patients can resume daily activities like watching TV, computer, reading, etc., immediately.

Traditional Intraocular Cataract Lenses or IOLs, have been spherically aberrated, which means their front and back surfaces are uniformly curved. Hence all the light rays are focused at varying points forming slightly blurred images. Intra Ocular lenses have evolved with time to give better clarity at varying distances and lighting conditions.

Aspheric IOLs, are slightly flat in the periphery and are designed to provide better contrast sensitivity and better vision in low light conditions. They achieve this by focusing all the light rays at one common point and forming a crisp aberration-free image.

These lenses give a better visual perception even in low light conditions and are theoretically known to give a better color resolution to the implanted eye. In addition, they are also known to offer many other advantages apart from the ones mentioned above.

WHAT IS ASTIGMATISM?

While a normal eye would have a smooth, round cornea and lens, people with astigmatism have an irregularity in their cornea or lens in a particular axis. Astigmatism is a common refractive error that causes blurred vision without the use of glasses or contact lenses.

When undergoing cataract surgery, astigmatism less than ID can be corrected using unique incisions but astigmatism more than ID will need implantation of a special IOL which has the correction added in that axis.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF TORIC IOLS?

  1. This single-piece foldable lens is flexible and comfortable for the human eye.
  2. Toric lens implantation for cataract surgery has shown positive reviews in terms of both optical performance and higher quality vision.
  3. It reduces dependency on distance glasses.

Monofocal lens has the ability to focus objects from only on one distance. Revolutionary Multifocal lenses focus both near and distant objects, thus making it easier for patients to reduce their dependency on glasses. 92% of the cataract patients after receiving multifocal intraocular implants report that they “never or occasionally” use spectacles for their daily routine life.

  • REFRACTIVE MULTIFOCAL LENS:

These lenses are an excellent choice for intermediate and distance vision. Near vision is acceptable except for fine print, such as grocery labels or medicine labels, etc. However, patients usually resort to this problem by keeping a pair of near vision spectacles handy. With Refractive Multifocal IOL, patients may experience glare and haloes around lights at night but using night driving spectacles helps them to get rid of the problem.

  • DIFFRACTIVE MULTIFOCAL LENS:

When it comes to providing both reading and distance vision, these implants are an excellent choice. The intermediate vision is acceptable but for long duration of computer work, where glasses come handy. Patients experience lesser glares & haloes around lights at night. However, many patients get accustomed to this drawback or as an alternative they use night driving spectacles, to combat this.

WHEN TO AVOID MULTIFOCAL IOL

IOL is not suitable for cataract patients with:

  • Severe retinal problems like Retinal Detachment, Macular Degeneration, Macular Holes, Diabetic Retinopathy, etc.
  • Advanced Glaucoma.
  • Cornea problems such as Keratoconus, irregular Corneal Astigmatism, etc.
  • Patients who have undergone procedures such as LASIK, PRK etc.
