What is a Cataract?

A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. Cataracts are commonly associated with aging, but they can develop from injury, medical conditions, or prolonged exposure to certain medications or radiation.


What are the symptoms of a cataract?


The symptoms of a cataract may include:


- Blurry or cloudy vision

- Difficulty seeing at night

- Sensitivity to light and glare

- Faded or dull colours

- Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions

- Double vision in a single eye

- Seeing halos around lights

What is the treatment for a Cataract?

Cataract removal surgery is a safe and effective procedure that involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). The surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis and is usually quick and painless.


Why do I need a cataract removed?


Cataracts can significantly impair vision, affecting your daily quality of life. If left untreated cataracts can worsen over time. This can lead to severe vision loss and even blindness.

What is Phacoemulsification?

Phacoemulsification is the most common technique used to remove cataracts. It involves using ultrasound energy to break up the cloudy lens into small pieces, which are then suctioned out of the eye. This technique allows for smaller incisions and faster recovery times compared to traditional cataract surgery.


What is Monofocal, Multifocal, and Toric Intraocular Lens Implantation Surgery?


During cataract surgery, the natural lens of the eye is replaced with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). There are several types of IOLs available, including:


Monofocal IOLs: These lenses provide clear vision at one distance (usually distance vision) and may require glasses for reading or other close-up tasks.


Multifocal IOLs: These lenses provide clear vision at multiple distances (near, intermediate, and distance) and reduce the need for glasses after surgery.


Toric IOLs: These lenses correct astigmatism, in addition to treating cataracts. Toric IOLs can help improve overall visual acuity and reduce dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

Mr Salvi is a highly experienced ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. He will work with you to determine the most suitable type of IOL based on your individual needs and lifestyle preferences.
