Cataracts are a common issue associated with aging that lead to suboptimal vision.

The eye consists of a crystalline lens that allows clear vision. Due to aging, the proteins of this lens start to break down and the lens becomes cloudy which leads to blurred vision.

Cataract surgery involves the removal of the affected natural lens and the introduction of an artificial Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) in its place. With advanced modern technology, cataract surgery resulting in complete vision correction in a safe, precise and efficient manner is attainable.

Our surgeons specialize in traditional and bladeless laser assisted cataract surgery and have performed a thousand cataract surgeries.

Treatment of cataracts

Initially, when cataracts are just beginning, glasses correction can help with vision. As cataracts progress, they can affect quality of life. Sometimes, progressing cataracts may induce other ocular pathology such as glaucoma and intraocular inflammation. In such situations, cataract surgery is required.

How is the cataract surgery done?

We offer traditional cataract surgery and the latest technologies for laser-assisted cataract extraction. In traditional surgery, a manual microincision is made in the cornea to access the lens which is then removed and replaced by a clear synthetic lens.

In Bladeless, laser assisted surgery, with the help of a laser, we make a very small incision with maximum accuracy to remove the cloudy media from your lens and place a new artificial Intra-Ocular Lens in its place.

What are the types of Intra Ocular Implants?

The type of intraocular lens implanted during cataract surgery is decided based on personal vision goals, anatomical factors and surgeon recommendations.
These lenses correct vision to one focal length – either distance or near vision. Astigmatism is not corrected by monocular IOLs and patients may still require to wear glasses and contact lenses for distance and near vision correction.
Monocular IOLs
Premium Multifocal IOLs
These lenses correct vision for different focal lengths – vision at distance, near and intermediate distances. Most of the patients do not require spectacles with this lens but some might still need glasses for computer distance.
These lenses correct astigmatism and distance vision.
Premium Toric IOLs
Premium Extended Depth of Focus IOLs
This one has progressively differing power throughout the lens and provides a focused vision for a wide range of distances. Some patients might require glasses for reading small prints.

Surgery Details

What to expect at the time of surgery?

Cataract surgery is done as an outpatient. Modern cataract surgery is painless. Patients typically receive intravenous medication to alleviate anxiety and a local anesthetic. Most patients are not put to sleep which avoids risks of general anesthesia and allows the surgeon to communicate with the patients during surgery. The surgery generally takes 15 to 20 minutes.

What to expect after surgery?

Patients will have a follow-up the next day and one week to ensure complete recovery. At 4-6 weeks point, a complete vision assessment is done.

For how long this surgery will benefit me?

Intra Ocular Lens Implantation will give you a clear vision for life! There is a chance of developing Posterior Capsular Opacity which can be treated with a short laser procedure in the office and will restore the vision.
