Cataracts Treatment

Cataract Surgery

A cataract is a misting up of the natural lens, which sits just behind the pupil and helps to focus light on the retina. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear synthetic implant called an intraocular lens (IOL). The focusing power of the IOL is chosen by your surgeon to reduce dependence on glasses after surgery.

Vision changes you may notice if you have a cataract:

  • Having blurry vision.
  • Seeing bright colours as faded or yellow instead.
  • Being extra sensitive to light.
  • Seeing double (when you see two images instead of one).
  • Having trouble seeing well at night, or needing more light when you read.
  • Stronger glasses don’t improve your vision.

What are the Benefits?

About four out of five patients are completely free of glasses after Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) with widely used contemporary multifocal Intra ocular lenses (IOLS).

  • Clearer vision.
  • Reduced dependency on glasses.
  • Free from cataracts, once the procedure is done you never have to worry about cataracts again.

There are two main types of lens implanted into the eye:

• Monofocal IOLs – these lenses have on specific focal point. Most patients target good distance vision and wear reading glasses. This lens can also be set to give good reading vision with the patient wearing distance glasses post-surgery

• Multifocal IOLs – Multifocal lenses aim to reduce spectacle dependence for a wider range of activities, including intermediate (computer screens) and near (reading) vision. If you are suitable for Refractive lens exchange, your surgeon will discuss which IOL type is the best option for you.
