Title: Cataract Surgery – The Benefits And Risks - Arohi Eye Hospital

Cataract Surgery The Benefits And Risks
Arohi Eye Hospital
Cataracts is a disorder that affects most of the
elderly citizens in the world. And, while this
is such a common disorder, there is no
medication or eye drop that can treat the
condition. The only guaranteed solution to
cataracts is surgery, which involves the
surgical removal of the cloudy natural lens of
the eye replacing it with an artificial
transparent lens known as the intraocular lens,
or IOL in short.
What is IOL lens? The IOL lens is similar to the
natural lens, performing the same functions, and
may be made of plastic, silicone, or acrylic.
There are a variety of IOL lenses available, and
you must be able to choose the right one for
your eyes if you want a successful surgery. You
must thus consult a professional eye specialist
who can diagnose your eyes, and identify the
perfect IOL lens for you.
  • What is cataract surgery?
  • Cataract surgery is generally performed on an
    out-patient basis, and takes less than an hour
    to be performed. It is performed under local
    anesthesia, which is why it hardly causes any
    pain. However, certain medications are
    prescribed both before and after the surgery,
    which must be taken as advised.
  • Just like IOLs, there are also various types of
    cataract surgeries that can be performed. The
    two most popular techniques are
    phacoemulsification and extracapsular surgery.
  • Phacoemulsification This surgery involves
    making small incisions, and using ultrasound to
    break up the lens into small pieces.
  • Extracapsular surgery This surgery involves
    removing the lens as a single piece after
    opening the front part of the lens capsule.
  • Success and complications of cataract surgery
  • Cataract surgery has seen a very high success
    rate in India, nearly as much as 98. The 2 of
    patients are those who might not see 100
    results. But, that does not mean that the surgery
    is not a success. There are very rare
    complications involved, and little to zero
    discomfort experienced. While rare, you, as a
    patient, have the right to know about all the
    possible complications involved, so that you are
    ready for it. The rarest yet most common
    complications experienced by cataract surgery
    patients involve dryness, floaters, infection,
    and sensitivity to bright light. In case any of
    these occur, your doctor may prescribe you
    certain lifestyle changes and medications, so
    that you can overcome these at the earliest.

The outcomes of cataract surgery The eyes start
getting back to normal within a few hours of the
surgery. Sensation starts returning in a matter
of hours, while complete clear vision may take a
few days. The average healing time taken is
somewhere between 2 to 6 weeks. But, if it takes
you a few months, you mustnt be worried. Every
eye and every individual is different, and thus,
this time difference. How much ever time it may
take for your eyes to get back to normal, but
once your eyes have healed, you must have them
tested again. After the test, you may be
prescribed new glasses. With the right
techniques, treatments, and follow-ups, you will
have a clear vision in no time! And, you will be
back to reading, driving, and socializing just
like you did before your cataracts! But for
this, you need the right specialist. Arohi Eye
