Catartact and IOL

What Causes Cataract?

The eye functions much like a camera. Light rays enter the eye, passing through the cornea, the aqueous humor – transparent fluid in the front of the eye – and then the pupil and into the lens. The lens bends the light rays to focus objects onto the retina lining the back of the eye. From there, the image passes through the retinal cells, into the optic nerve, and finally to the back of the brain which process the images. Cataracts occur when there is a buildup of protein in the lens that makes it cloudy. This prevents light from passing clearly through the lens, causing some loss of vision.

Treatment For Cataract:

Cataract surgery is an exciting time for patients because it offers the unique opportunity to optimize vision by correcting myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism and presbyopia. During cataract surgery, the cataract is removed and a permanent intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted in its place. The traditional IOL is monofocal in nature, and it provides the sharpest vision at one distance. These IOL’s only correct for myopia and hyperopia. Patients tend to choose to have the clearest vision at distance and then rely on reading glasses to correct for astigmatism and presbyopia post-operatively. There have been many advances in the development of special intra-ocular lenses that correct for astigmatism and presbyopia in addition to myopia and hyperopia. These advances have allowed patients to strive for spectacle independence. There are a variety of lens options available; it is important to have a frank discussion with your surgeon to assess your visual needs and expectations.
  • MICS(MICRO Incision Cataract Surgery)

MICS (Micro Incision Cataract Surgery)

Earlier Cataract Surgery would put patients off their daily routine for more than weeks in a row with a common sight of their eyes strapped in bandage. But with advancement in technology, it takes not more than 5-10 minutes to finish the surgical process.
Cataract Surgery was performed with an incision of 12 mm. Over the years, with the advent of phacoemulsification / phaco the incision has been reduced to the minimum of 2.8 – 3.4mm.
Micro Incision Cataract Surgery is a significant development in the treatment of Cataract or Blurred Vision which has redefined the dynamics of eye surgery. This operation methodology brings about more comfort for patients and immediate recovery.
This new technique of performing Cataract Surgery already made things easier and simpler, for both patients and surgeons.
The technique of MICS makes Cataract Surgery safer than before, painless, speedy and very accurate. The patient may resume with the daily activities on the same day or max within a day’s time.

Advantages of MICS (Micro Incision Cataract Surgery):

  • Smaller incisions heal faster which ultimately leads to faster vision recovery.
  • Smaller incision induce lesser change of original shape of the eye. Hence less astigmatism and lesser requirement of post operative Spectacles.
  • Enhanced quality of postoperative vision with improved IOLs having advanced optics technology thus rendering an enhanced vision contrast.
  • Faster healing means good news for diabetic patients (those with delayed wound healing tendency).
  • Lesser incidence of infections (as the wound heals quickly).
  • Minimal restrictions post operatively (as the wound heals superfast).
  • The patient can get back to his normal life style like watching T.V, computer reading etc. nearly immediately.
  • All these above mentioned advantages contribute to the success of Cataract Surgery MICS. It is safe even in the summer/rainy season, thus breaking the age old myth about cataract surgery being unsafe in a few specific months.

Lens Implants

Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are medical devices that are implanted inside the eye to replace the eye's natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery. IOLs also are used for a type of vision correction surgery called refractive lens exchange.

Premium IOLs are considered ``premium`` intraocular lenses because they have advanced features beyond those found in basic mono vision IOLs.
During your preoperative exam and consultation, your cataract surgeon can help you choose the best IOL for your needs.

There are several types of artificial lenses that are available to cataract patients today. These include:

  • Monofocal – designed to see distant vision
  • Multifocal IOLs - designed to see near, intermediate and far through their lens' optics
  • Toric IOL s - designed to treat astigmatism

Premium lens implants have been helping people over 40 years of age to resume their active lifestyle as they had when they were younger. The surgeons at Visitech Eye Centre have been trained in the latest intraocular surgery techniques involving lens implantation with multifocal and toric lens implant. Visitech Eye Centre offers a comprehensive choice of Intraocular lenses (IOLs) depending on your vision needs
