What is cataract?

Cataract is the clouding of the natural lens of the eye, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. The disorder causes blurred vision or total loss of vision in people especially above 40 years of age. The disorder develops slowly due to protein build-up in the eye and may affect one or both eyes. Cataract may occur due to age factor or due to trauma to the eye (after an accident). It may also occur after birth or after an eye surgery, as a side-effect. The three types of cataracts are subcapsular cataract, nuclear cataract, and cortical cataract. Subcapsular cataract affects the back of the lens. Nuclear cataract starts from the nucleus of the eye, i.e. the deep central zone of the lens. And, cortical cataract is categorized by white wedge-like patches (opaque) that start from the edge of the lens and extend towards the center of the eye.
The medical team at MGM Hospital CBD uses state-of-the-art technologies and techniques to perform cataract surgery, including advanced intraocular lenses that can correct vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Laser Cataract Procedure

An imaging device is placed over the eyes of the patient to measure the length, breadth, and the location of the cataract. The gathered information is sent to a special software computer that programs the laser for the required incision. The eye surgeon uses this laser to make a corneal incision and opening in the capsule. The energy from the laser is used to soften the cataract so that it can be easily removed. With the help of an ultrasound probe, the lens is broken into pieces and is suctioned out. The surgeon inserts an intraocular lens (IOL) in the eyes. There are different types of IOL lens that the surgeon can use in place of the patient’s natural lens, depending on the type needed:

Monofocal IOL

Used for distant vision. With this kind of lens, the patient might need corrective, or computer glasses post-surgery.

Multifocal IOL

Using this type of lens, the patient can perform day to day activities and they provide a clear vision. The patient does not need corrective glasses though he might see halos around light while driving.

Newer Multifocal IOL

This type of lens does not cause halos and minimizes glare. It comes in two types: Symfony and trifocal lens. Symfony lenses are used to treat distance and near vision, whereas trifocal lenses are implanted for near, distant, and intermediate vision.
