A cataract is a dense cloud that forms on the lens of the eye when proteins present in the eye precipitate together. Although a cataract develops gradually, if left untreated, it can lead to blindness. This condition usually affects older age groups but it can develop at any age. It’s important to treat cataract at an early stage than wait for it to mature.

1 Diagnosis
  • A comprehensive eye exam including an eye chart test to check vision at different distances and tonometry to measure eye pressure
  • Pupils are dilated using eye drops to check for any possible damage to the optic nerve and retina
2 Treatment
  • Once the surgery is scheduled, you will undergo a biometry test to determine the power of the intraocular lens to be implanted in the eye. At Sri Eye Care, we offer the latest in biometry analysis with the Lenstar® optical biometer. This significantly improves the accuracy of the power of the lens and reduces the need for post-operative spectacle correction for distance vision
  • Cataract surgery is a safe, permanent treatment recommended by doctors. The surgical method, known as phacoemulsification, involves the use of ultrasound waves to remove the cataract-affected lens. The ultrasound waves are usually introduced through a self-sealing 3mm incision
  • People who cannot or do not wish to get surgery are usually prescribed temporary relief with strong eyeglasses, magnifying lenses, or anti-glare sunglasses

Take prescribed oral pain relievers such as paracetamol for any discomfort

Don’t drive on the first day and avoid any heavy lifting or strenuous activity for a few weeks

Avoid bending over, immediately after the procedure

Avoid sneezing or vomiting right after surgery

Avoid swimming or using a hot tub during the first month

Don’t expose your eye to irritants such as grime, dust, and wind during the first few days after surgery

Avoid head-bath and face wash for a week at least

Don’t rub your eye
