This disease is manifested by loss of transparency in the lens that is located behind the pupil.
This disease is manifested by loss of transparency in the lens that is located behind the pupil. Cataract cannot be managed with eye drops or eyeglasses. Treatment option is a surgical procedure.
If you have any one of these complaints, you may also have cataract.
Since cataract develops and matures over a time, patients may not recognize the slowly progressing loss of vision.
Cataract surgery is a specialized operation that requires use of microsurgical techniques and the devices and materials used for the operation should be very carefully selected.
The eye is usually numbed with local anesthesia and the opacified native lens is broken up and removed with phacoemulsification method and it is replaced by FDA-approved synthetic lenses. Depending on the choice of the patient, Trifocal – Smart Lenses can be used that are correcting both nearsightedness and farsightedness.
Patients are discharged on the same day after the cataract surgery is performed. Both eyes are not concomitantly operated on due to the risk of infection.
Although cataracts may not initially show symptoms, they are generally noticed in older age. Blurry and hazy vision, as well as the inability to see clearly, are the most significant symptoms. Vision may deteriorate more in dark environments. Cataracts can also cause colors to appear faded. It is a disease that greatly affects the quality of life.
Cataracts occur as a result of chemical changes in the proteins called crystallins that form the lens of the eye, leading to the formation of clusters of high-molecular-weight proteins. This, in turn, causes cloudy, patchy, and hazy vision. These protein clusters gradually increase over time and hinder the passage of light into the retina.
Several factors can contribute to the development of cataracts, including a family history of cataract disease, various health conditions and illnesses, genetic disorders, past eye surgeries, prolonged exposure of the eyes to sunlight, diabetes, and long-term use of steroid medications.
The most effective way to get rid of cataracts is through surgical intervention. With advancing technology, these surgeries are performed easily and quickly. Hospitalization is not required.
However, there are certain factors to consider before and after the surgery. These include whether the patient has previously undergone cataract surgery, their age, and their diabetic condition. It is important to avoid activities such as swimming pools and saunas during the first 45 days after the surgery. There is a risk of infection, especially during the summer months.
