Cataract Surgery

 

Neither eye drops nor oral medications can cure cataract. Cataract surgery is the only effective treatment that improves the vision of the patients with cataract. It involves removal of the cloudy natural lens in the eye and replacing it with a clear artificial lens, called an intraocular lens (IOL).

Most cataract surgery is performed as a day case, which means that you will not need to stay overnight in the hospital. With the advances in cataract surgery, cloudy and blur vision due to cataract can now be treated at an earlier stage. Patients no longer need to wait until the cataract ‘ripens’ before they can go through surgery.

Patients may undergo cataract surgery under local or general anaesthesia, depending on their general health. As cataract surgery is generally painless, general anaesthesia is sometimes preferred by some eye doctors to overcome the fear and discomfort that patients may experience during the procedure.
