Cataract treatment

Cataract treatment involves removing the clouded cataractous lens using the appropriate technique and replacing it with an artificial clear Intraocular Lens (IOL).

It is a day care procedure requiring no prior hospital admission. The surgery takes a few minutes and the patient is discharged the very same day.

types of cataract surgery

1) SICS : Small incision cataract surgery

This is a cataract surgery wherein a 6-7 mm incision is made and the cataract is removed as a whole by the surgeon. The IOL of choice is then placed in the eye and the wound is sealed. No stitches are required in this procedure.

2) Phacoemulsification (Phaco) –

This is the modern cataract removal surgical technique which is performed through a very small 2-3 mm incision. An ultrasonic probeis inserted into the eye which breaks (emulsifies) the cloudy lens into tiny pieces and gently removes it. A Foldable IOL ins then inserted which opens up like a flower when inside. No stitches are used and the incision is self-healing.

Using advanced surgical techniques of Phacoemulsification, the removal of the cataract is a safe and straightforward process. No discomfort is experienced during & none or minimal after the procedure. These are the benefits of the surgery today
