What is cataract?
The human crystalline lens, which is clear and transparent, is part of the focusing mechanism of the eye and when it becomes cloudy and opaque leads to decreased vision and is called Cataract.
What causes Cataract ?
Ageing is the most common cause. With age, proteins of the eye lens get altered and denatured leading to cataract. Other causes include congenital and developmental anomalies (birth defects), trauma, inflammation of the eye, metabolic diseases like Diabetes, Hypothyroidism, certain medicines like steroids, radiation etc.,
What are the common symptoms of Cataract?
Cataract makes simple tasks difficult and in some cases impossible to perform. Various types of cataracts can cause different kinds of problems. Some of them are
- Cloudy or Blurred Vision
- Changes in one's perception of colours
- Sensitivity to bright lamps or sunlight
- Poor night vision
- Difficulty in driving especially at night
- Frequent changes in eyeglass prescription
What are the treatment options for Cataract ?
Surgery is the only course of treatment for cataract where the cloudy lens is replaced by an artificial lens know as Intra Ocular Lens - IOL
Earlier method was to cut half circumference of the cornea to bring out the entire lens, later prescribing the thick glasses. This technique was modified by leaving the support intact so that an IOL can be placed and glasses are required though not as thick as in the previous method. Both these methods require a fully ripe lens for easy removal, sutures to close the wound and eye must be made numb through an injection.
In the past several decades the cataract surgery has undergone rapid development in terms of techniques, the calculation of power of the IOLs,the type of IOLs to achieve amazing visual outcomes
