Cataract and its treatment

Details about Cataract surgeries

The mere presence of a cataract does not need surgery. A cataract needs to be removed only when vision loss interferes with your everyday activities such as driving, reading, or watching TV. The decision to have cataract surgery is usually made by both the patient and the doctor together.

We routinely perform a minimally invasive cataract surgery called Phacoemulsification.

Some of the features of the procedure are

  • No injections
  • No stitches
  • No patch
  • No dark glasses
  • Faster visual recovery

The patient is given anaesthesia to numb the eye in the form of eye drops. A tiny incision (2.8 mm or less) is fashioned on the eye to facilitate insertion of a small ultrasonic probe. This probe crushes, or emulsifies the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently sucks the debris out of the eye in a matter of a few minutes. An intraocular lens (IOL) is then inserted in its place.

Acrysof Monofocal Intraocular lenses (IOL)

Traditionally lenses were rigid, necessitating bigger incisions and stitches, thus resulting in longer recovery period. Also the sutures would cause irritation, redness, watering etc. besides inducing a spectacle number which would be unpredictable.

The size of the cataract is roughly the size of a regular sized button (collar button)
This means that the IOL implanted would also be the same size, thus necessitating a similar sized incision.
Today with advent of foldable lenses, the lens is actually rolled onto itself, thus greatly reducing incision size. The wound is practically self-sealing without for any stiches.

Multifocal IOLs

Traditional IOLs after cataract surgery were only able to correct distance vision, often leaving patients with the need for reading glasses. Multifocal IOLs on the other hand, offer patients freedom from glasses after cataract surgery by improving vision at all distances and at any time of the day. Up to 85 percent of patients do not need to rely on glasses with multifocal IOLs. 

The Acrysof Restor IOL is a unique patented IOL that offers significant freedom from glasses overall for distance and near post cataract surgery. Due to its unique design, it allows gives the person proper reading and distance vision at the same time and eradicates the need for glasses. About 85 % of patients implanted with Restor IOL never need to use glasses post op for all routine work.

Toric IOLs

Some eyes typically have astigmatism—i.e. the cornea is shaped like an egg or the back of a spoon with one surface more curved than the other. The lenses however are spherical in shape—like a football.

These Toric IOLs are specially designed for such patients, thus correcting the mismatch between the cornea and the lens implanted.

Department of Cataract

Almost all cataract surgeries here are done by a technique called “Micro Phacoemulsification”  ( commonly known as ‘ laser technique’) under Topical Anaesthesia  (no injection). In this technique the cataract is broken into smaller pieces and aspirated and then the intraocular lens is implanted. Most of the patients do not require any stitches.

Types of Lenses

Cost depends on the kind of lens used:

Monofocal Lenses

They are of two types - nonfoldable & foldable. Foldable lenses have the advantage of requiring a much smaller incision, thus promoting faster recovery.

Most of the lenses available today have the property to filter out UV rays. Acrysof IQ is a premium imported foldable lens (widely used all over the world and most trusted by doctors), which has the additional property to absorb the hazardous Ultra Violet and also Hazardous Blue light. UV rays are a known causative risk factor for Age Related Macular Degeneration (ARMD). The Pre loaded packaging allows it to be inserted inside the eye with almost zero handling & maximum sterility.

Its optical properties are very similar to the natural human lens.

Surgery causes stress to the cornea, retina and other eye structures.

BSS (Balanced Salt Solution) by Alcon USA, provides nourishment, promotes a safe environment, and helps restore health to ocular tissues.  Moreover, the properties of  BSS   are close to Aqueous Humor, one of the fluids present naturally in our eyes.

Please note: All patients undergoing cataract surgery may not be ideal candidates for Multifocal / Toric lenses. Various factors like pre operative refractive errors, visual needs, occupation, lifestyle etc. have to be taken into consideration before going in for these lenses, for best results. You may discuss the possible advantages & disadvantages in further details with us.
