What is Cataract?

Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens in the eye. This lens is responsible for focusing and producing clear sharp images. Due to cataract, the vision dims since it prevents light from passing beyond the lens and focusing on the retina

Who can develop Cataract?

Normally, cataract develops as a natural process of ageing. At Aayush Eye Clinic, we normally see patients above the age of 50 years with Cataract. However, few patients in the age group of 30-40 years are detected with Cataract. Although rare, cataract is also sometimes detected in infants and young adults.

Symptoms of Cataract
  • Fuzzy or blurry vision
  • Difficulty in reading, watching television and driving, especially at night
  • Colours appear dull or faded
  • Halos around lights
  • Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription

Cataract Surgery @ Aayush Eye Clinic

Complete pre-operative evaluation

The most important aspect of a Cataract evaluation is the selection of the most suitable Intra-Ocular lens and for that at Aayush Eye Clinic we use state-of-the-art equipment:

  • The IOL Master - 500(Carl Zeiss) - Optical Biometer for Accurate Lens power Calculation

  • HD - OCT - (Cirrus) with Anterior and Posterior both(Carl Zeiss Germany)

  • VERIONTM Image Guided System

Cataract surgery has taken a step forward. The VERIONTM Image Guided System is designed to help a surgeon customize and tailor the procedure specifically to your eyes with computer accuracy

The VERIONTM Image Guided System allows your surgeon to use high-resolution images of your eye and other critical information throughout your entire procedure with image-guided precision. The system is designed to assist your surgeon in providing the improvement in vision you desire and deserve

  • First, measurements and images of your eye are taken non-invasively
  • Next, your surgeon uses a series of complex calculations provided by the system to tailor and optimize your surgical plan
  • Finally, your tailored surgical plan is used in combination with the high-resolution images of your eye to help precisely guide every phase of the procedure

Intraocular surgery is better than ever!! With

  • No Injection
  • No patch
  • No pain
  • No stitch

FAQs

  • Will my activities be restricted after surgery?

    May not be, it depends on your general health and the condition of your eye, and also the type of your surgery that is planned. Generally after a short time you can resume your active life style.

  • Why should I insist on a foldable IOL?

    To fully reap the benefits of a micro incision in a Phaco surgery, you need a foldable IOL. They pass through incisions as small as 1.8-2.65 mm with the help of newest generation unfolders. Thus your surgery will be almost an outpatient procedure! No Blood, No Stitch, No Injection. Only micro incision-foldable IOLs can make it for you!

  • Are they not too costly?

    If you compare the disadvantages of traditional surgery, inability to attend work/business for some days, poor vision etc. you will yourself appreciate that the marginal increase in cost of surgery is more than compensated.

  • Will I need glasses after surgery?

    Very often not. You may need to wear glasses only to fine tune your vision. These are normal glasses and not those ‘thick’ spectacles as in the past.

    • 1.Multifocal lenses are available which have both the powers, distance & near in one lens. They are only for select individuals where they give the advantages of multifocal eyesight. Also,multifocality, improves even more after both eyes are done.
      The latest generation Trifocal lenses offer excellent functional vision at intermediate distance too such as using the computer.
    • 2.Toric lenses are designed for people with astigmatism (cylindrical power) to give clearer vision and reduce dependence on glasses. Now technology has allowed us the luxury of Toricmultifocal and Toric Trifocal lenses, for patients who desire spectacle independence for distance & near vision despite having Cylindrical power.
    • Extended Depth of focus lenses: These IOLs deliver continuous full range of High Quality Vision with reduced incidence of Haloes and Glare.
    • You should discuss with Dr. Nita Shah whether these options are feasible for you.
