Faqs Cataract

  • What is a cataract?

    A cataract is clouding of the lens of the eye. Normally, light passing through the lens is focused on the retina. However, as a result of the natural aging process, the lens becomes cloudy. The cataract blocks the passage of light through the eye and causes distorted or blurred vision.

  • Can sight loss be prevented?

    Loss of sight due to a cataract can be prevented. With modern technology, cataracts can be removed and good vision restored. Cataracts no longer need to be ripe for removal.

  • Am I A Candidate For the Latest Techniques?

    Some patients may not be suitable for the newest techniques in cataract surgery because of their eye structure, health or other factors. In these cases, patients can undergo traditional techniques and expect to do well. We offer a wide variety of techniques to suit every budget and every patient.

  • What is a secondary cataract?

    During cataract surgery, a clear capsule is left surrounding the cataract to support the lens implant. In some cases, this capsule may turn cloudy months, or even years, after the surgery. In this case, a quick outpatient laser procedure will restore vision in a matter of minutes.

Restoring Vision

The most effective way to restore vision, in case cataract is formed, is to remove lens of the eye and replace it with a plastic or soft, foldable silicone/acrylic lens implant called an intraocular Lens (IOL).

Recent advances in the procedure allow vision to be restored safer and faster. Cataract surgery now has a success rate greater than 98%.

After Surgery

Cataract Surgery

Most patients are pleasantly surprised to find that their vision begins to improve a few hours after the surgery. They may even find their vision better than ever. However, some will need to wear glasses for reading and other activities. During the initial healing period, there may be a few limitations to strenuous activities. However, most of our patients have returned to their normal lifestyles immediately.
