FREQUENTLY ASKED QUERIES (FAQs)
The eye’s natural lens becomes clouded in a cataract. The most frequent cause of cataract is ageing. The normally translucent lens begins to become opaque with ageing, which reduces vision.
Increased glare and a reduction in night vision are the initial signs of an eye cataract. Your eyesight will start to get blurry as your cataract progresses, which will impede your daily activities. In situations of early cataract, your eyes may not appear different from the outside or may not display any unusual coloration or spot. The white area in the middle of the eye is only seen after the cataract has fully developed or has become white.
The sole therapy for treating cataracts is cataract surgery. Using a phacoemulsification machine, we may remove the cataract from a little incision formed during the operation, which is similar to a daycare procedure and only requires a 2 mm incision. The same little incision is then used to insert an intraocular lens. Less than 10 minutes are required to complete the process. There is no need for an injection because drops are used to anaesthetize the eye during this procedure. Additionally, there is no eye patch used following the treatment, and the patient can return to regular activities the same evening.
The majority of patients regain between 85 and 90% of their vision after a few hours of treatment. Over the next several days, drops will help the rest of the eyes. After surgery, you might notice that the lights are brighter. It takes a few days for one to get used to it.
Prior to cataract surgery, we conduct a battery of tests that include measuring the lens power and assessing other eye structures, including the cornea and retina. Once we have assessed your eye type, we will be able to explain to you in detail the options that are best for you. These include monofocal lenses, toric lenses, bifocal lenses, and trifocal lenses. Monofocal lenses help correct distance vision while requiring glasses for near, while toric lenses correct cylindrical power on the cornea while also correcting distance vision while requiring glasses for near.
Cataract surgery is a daycare procedure. The day following surgery, one can return to work. After surgery, patients shouldn’t wash their hair for a few days. must refrain from demanding activity for a few days following the surgery.
The price of cataract surgery varies from hospital to hospital and is dependent on the IOL (Lens). Cataract surgery costs in Iris Eye Care range from 10k to 1+ lacs.
