Cataract and Phaco Surgery
About Cataract A cataract is a clouding of the
natural lens in the eye that affects vision.  The
lens is a clear part of the eye that helps to
focus light, or an image, on the retina. The
retina is the light sensitive tissue at the back
of the eye. In a normal eye, light passes through
the transparent lens to the retina. Once it
reaches the retina, light is changed into nerve
signals that are sent to the brain. The lens must
be clear for the retina to receive a sharp image.
If the lens is cloudy from a cataract, the image
will be blurred.
Symptoms of Cataract People with cataract, even
when wearing glasses, typically
experience Cloudy or blurry vision. Difficulty
driving at night Difficulty reading or watching
television. Difficulty in recognizing colours.
Colors seem faded. Glare at night. Haloes around
lights. Poor night vision. Double vision or
multiple images in one eye. Poor vision in bright
light Frequent prescription changes in eyeglasses
or contact lenses.
Types of Cataract Age Related or Senile
Cataract Most cataracts are related to
aging. Secondary cataract. Cataracts can form
after surgery for other eye problems, such as
glaucoma. Cataracts also can develop in people
who have other health problems, such as diabetes.
Cataracts are sometimes linked to steroid use.
Traumatic cataract. Cataracts can develop after
an eye injury, sometimes years later. Congenital
cataract. Some babies are born with cataracts or
develop them in childhood, often in both
eyes. Radiation cataract. Cataracts can develop
after exposure to some types of
radiation. Steroid-Induced Cataract Cataract
develops due to side effects of drug.
Treatment for Cataract There are no medicines
with proven efficacy to prevent or treat
cataract. The only effective treatment for
cataract involves surgery is to remove the
cataract and replace it with an intraocular lens
implant. It is the most common Modern Technique
which is used for removal of cataract is known as
Phaco / MICS. Cataract surgical procedure around
the world and is considered to be extremely
successful and safe. Diabetes, hypertension and
other general health problems are not a
contraindication for cataract surgery and the
cataract need not mature for surgery. A
cataract needs to be removed when vision loss
interferes with your everyday activities, such as
driving, reading, or watching TV. You and your
eye care professional can make this decision
together. Sometimes a cataract should be removed
even if it does not cause problems with your
vision. For example, a cataract should be removed
if it prevents examination or treatment of
another eye problem, such as age related macular
degeneration or diabetic retinopathy. If you have
cataracts in both eyes that require surgery, the
surgery will be performed on each eye at separate
times. Many people who need cataract surgery also
have other eye conditions, such as age related
macular degeneration or glaucoma. If you have
other eye conditions in addition to cataract,
talk with your doctor. Learn about the risks,
benefits, alternatives, and expected results of
cataract surgery.
Types of cataract surgery There are two types
of cataract surgery. Your doctor can explain the
differences and help determine which is better
for you Phacoemulsification, or Phaco. A small
incision is made on the side of the cornea, the
clear, dome shaped surface that covers the front
of the eye. Your doctor inserts a tiny probe into
the eye. This device emits ultrasound waves that
soften and break up the lens so that it can be
removed by suction. Most cataract surgery today
is done by phacoemulsification, also called
small incision cataract surgery. Extra
Capsular surgery. Your doctor makes a longer
incision on the side of the cornea and removes
the cloudy core of the lens in one piece. The
rest of the lens is removed by suction. After the
natural lens has been removed, it often is
replaced by an artificial lens, called an
intraocular lens (IOL). An IOL is a clear,
plastic lens that requires no care and becomes a
permanent part of your eye. Light is focused
clearly by the IOL onto the retina, improving
your vision. You will not feel or see the new
lens. Phacoemulsification technique Cataract
extraction by phacoemulsification through a
micro-incision and implanting a foldable
lntra-ocular lens is a definite technological
advancement from conventional surgery. The cloudy
cataractous lens is aspirated out with a suction
device. The IOL is injected into the eye through
the small incision and it unfolds and is
positioned correctly in the eye. It can be
Mono-focal, Multifocal or Toric lens depending on
the requirement of the patient, which will be
decided by the surgeon in agreement with the
patient. The surgical procedure is done under
local/topical anesthesia and the incision is so
small that it heals by itself.
Advantages A highly customized and precise
treatment No Injection, no stitch, No Bandage
procedure Self-sealing and painless. Shorter
overall duration of surgery Less post-operative
discomfort Rapid visual recovery and early
rehabilitation Perfect early restoration of
vision with lifestyle lenses. Wound stability is
far better since the entire surgery is done
through a very small opening Types of Lens
Implants  When undergoing cataract surgery or
refractive lens exchange, you have options when
it comes to intraocular lenses (IOL). Below are
the different types of IOLs that can be implanted
during your surgery. Patients can choose the
standard IOL or select from several Lifestyle
Lens options.
Standard, Single Focus or Monofocal Lens With
basic cataract surgery, the cataract is removed
and replaced with a standard, single focus IOL.
This lens can correct for the impairment caused
by the cataract but it will not ensure the
patients independence on prescription glasses
for other vision problems. Toric Lens -
Lifestyle Lens With a toric IOL, patients are
able to achieve the same results of basic
cataract surgery, but will have the added benefit
of vision correction. This specialized IOL has
the ability to correct astigmatism (a condition
in which the shape of the cornea is irregular,
causing vision to degrade without the help of
corrective eyewear). A toric lens can help to
adjust the focus of light appropriately for
individuals who have astigmatism. Multifocal
Lens - Lifestyle Lens This type of lifestyle
lens corrects the patients ability to see at a
distance, and can provide an improved ability to
adjust focus at near or intermediate distances. A
multifocal IOL can virtually eliminate a
dependence on glasses for most patients. Some
patients may still use glasses to see very fine
details up close. Due to the unique capabilities
of this IOL, the patient may need to go through
an adjustment period, similar to adjusting to a
new pair of bifocals or progressive lenses.

Multifocal Toric Lens - Lifestyle Lens A
multifocal toric lens provides all the same
benefits of a multifocal lens, but also corrects
for astigmatism. Light entering the eye is
focused to adjust for an oblong-shaped cornea,
and vision at varying distances can also be
improved. Refractive Lens Exchange
(RLE) Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) may be an
option for those who require vision correction.
RLE is an alternative to LASIK and other forms of
refractive surgery. RLE is a procedure similar to
cataract surgery, but can be performed on
patients without cataracts. RLE can also be used
to prevent cataracts from forming in the future.
The options for this surgery are the same as what
is available in cataract surgery. The patient can
choose a standard, single focus lens or one of
the lifestyle lenses listed above. If the patient
selects a standard IOL, they will still require
reading glasses for near vision. With a lifestyle
lens, patients can eliminate some or all
dependence on prescription glasses.

day care facility for post-operative care What
Should I Expect On The Day Of Surgery? You will
be called to the hospital 2 hours prior to the
surgery for dilatation of pupil and preparation
of the eye to be operated. Under topical or
surface anaesthesia removal of the cataract will
be performed using the cutting edge Phaco
technology of centurion vision system with
implantation of lifestyle intraocular lens.   How
Long Does The Procedure Take? You can expect the
total duration of your stay in the hospital for
about 2 to 3 hours. You will be in the operation
room for about 15 minutes.
What Should I Expect For Recovery? Normally you
will be able to see after 10-15 minutes after the
surgery, but vision may be blurry. Most patients
see well on next day, but in some cases for
example, hard and mature cataracts it may take 2
to 3 days for full visual recovery.   Contact
