Cataract & IOL

What is Cataract

The human eye has a natural lens, which is normally transparent and helps to focus the light on the retina. When this lens becomes cloudy, usually due to aging, it is called Cataract or Safed Motiya/ Motiyabind. This obstructs the light and causes vision to become hazy.Frequent symptoms of cataract include blurring of vision, glare & sensitivity to bright light, difficulty in night driving, seeing multiple images, frequent changes in the power of glasses, etc.

Cataract Surgery

Surgery is the only way to treat cataract. Cataract surgery with intraocular implant is an extremely safe day care procedure in which the surgeon removes the clouded lens and puts an Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) in your eye.

Phacoemulsification (PHACO)  is the latest stitchless, bloodless, painless procedure where cataract is removed and foldable IOL is injected through a very small incision of less than 3.2mm. With the latest advances, we now have Micro Phaco- Microincision Cataract surgery  (MICS) where the incision size is even smaller around 2.2mm thus giving even better results.

Premium IOLs

Many types of intraocular lenses (IOLs) are available and each has their own pros and cons. Discuss with your doctor which IOL is best suited for you.

Monofocal IOLs are the most commonly used IOLs and provide distance vision. Aspheric/ Aberration free lenses give better contrast, sharpness and clarity than regular monofocal lenses.Preloaded IOLs are pre-packaged and are injected by a no touch technique

EDOF (Extended Depth of Focus) IOLs are a new type of lenses which improve intermediate range vision. For very fine near work glasses may be required. They are free from night vision distortion

Multifocal IOLs (or Bifocal IOLs) provide for distance and near vision but not intermediate range vision.

Trifocal IOLs are the most advanced IOLs that provide for full range of vision (distance, intermediate, and near)

Toric IOLs correct astigmatism
