Cataract Treatments

The eye sees light when it enters it, just like a camera. Much like the lens of a camera, your eye has a natural clear lens. The pupil focuses the light rays that enter the eye onto the retina at the back. These different parts of the retina collect light and transmit it to your brain, which allows you to see.

The lens should be clear so that light can pass through it. When you see clearly, light enters through your cornea, passes through your natural lens and is focused onto your retina.

The lens becomes cloudy or opaque when it becomes cloudy or opaque. A cataract scatters light rays as they pass through the eye, which causes blurred vision. The condition of cataract refers to a clouding of the natural lens inside your eyes, not a growth or film on the eye. As compared to a clear lens, the vision with a cataract may look fuzzy, colors may appear muted, and it may be more difficult to read signs while driving at night. A cataract’s symptoms are progressive, and they cannot be corrected with glasses or contacts. Symptoms that interfere with daily activities or become bothersome should be treated.

What causes cataract?

Cataracts are most commonly caused by degenerative changes caused by aging. Natural lens proteins break down with age.

Degeneration leads to a clouded lens called a cataract. Among the possible causes are:

  • Health conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, glaucoma, smoking, eye injuries, infection, and inflammation
  • Prolonged use of certain medications can also cause cataracts
  • Children can also suffer from cataracts due to genetic or metabolic defects, infection, or trauma

What are the symptoms of cataract?

If you have cataract, you may experience some or all of the following symptoms.

  • Blurred vision
  • Objects' colors may appear faded
  • Night vision is poor
  • It is difficult to drive at night, especially because of the glare of lights
  • Insufficient light for reading
  • Haloes of colored light
  • There may be more than one image or a double image
Tips & Info

DVITA offers what surgical techniques for removing cataracts?

The DVITA offers a variety of advanced, cutting-edge surgical techniques to treat cataracts. Your Ophthalmologist will recommend the best treatment option for you based on the type of cataract you have, your health condition, and your lifestyle. The three most commonly used surgical techniques are:

Small Incision Cataract Surgery (SICS):

It is also a new technique that involves the removal of the cataract manually through a slightly larger incision. Phacoemulsification is difficult if the cataract is too hard.

Phacoemulsification:

The tiny instrument is inserted through a very small incision (approximately 2.2 to 2.8 mm wide).
As a result of ultrasound vibrations, the cataract is broken into tiny pieces. Suction is used to gently remove these pieces.
Closing the incision usually does not require stitches. With this minimally invasive procedure, healing is faster and safer, and you will be able to resume your normal activities in no time.

Femto Second Laser Cataract Surgery:

Femtosecond laser surgery is the latest advancement in advanced cataract surgery, resulting in higher precision and safety of crucial steps of the procedure. It can improve several key aspects of the procedure.
Incisions made during surgery
Circular opening on the surface of the lens (capsulotomy)
Natural human cataracts are fragmented
A second advantage of this laser is that it allows accurate planning of incisions in the peripheral cornea to correct pre existing corneal astigmatism (cylinder power).

What are the various lens options available at DVITA?

Options for intraocular lenses (IOLs) for cataract surgery

Monofocal lenses

Monofocal IOLs are the most common type of lens implanted after cataract surgery. The lens provides clear distance vision. The patient will still need glasses for close detailed work and for reading. Monofocal lenses are available in different types of materials.

Toric Monofocal Lens

The device is used to correct corneal astigmatism. Provides correction for your distance vision and cylindrical power (if any), and will require you to wear glasses for near and intermediate work.

Aspheric Lens:

Almost all lenses have a spherical surface, which can cause aberrations in vision. A spheric lens enhances contrast sensitivity and vision quality. It also improves night vision and low-light visibility.

Multifocal Lens

The product helps users see clearly at close, intermediate, and far distances, and reduces their dependence on glasses. You will not be able to avoid wearing glasses completely, and you may occasionally need them for very fine tasks at close range and distance.

Multifocal Toric Lens

Relieves cataract and astigmatism, provides clear vision for near, intermediate and far distance, and reduces the need for glasses. This does not mean that you can do away with glasses completely. You may occasionally need glasses for some fine near- and distance tasks
