CATARACT

Cataract is the opacity (clouding) of the eye’s natural lens which is normally transparent. When the lens become opaque, light rays cannot pass through them easily and the vision becomes blurred. It can develop in any eye and at any age and has a variety of causes.


Cataract surgeries
Today surgical treatments for cataract are faster, accurate and safer. The surgery can be done any stage of the cataract development, if the vision is affected.


Conventional phacoemulsification
The surgeon manually creates a circular opening in the outer shell of the cataract. Next ultrasound energy is used to break up and remove the cataract. Finally, an artificial intraocular lens is inserted into the remaining shell to replace the natural lens.


Microincisional cataract surgery (MICS)
This is similar to the phacoemulsification surgery in all aspects except the wound entry is 1.8-2.2mm in MICS.


Femtosecond laser Refractive Cataract Surgery (FLACS)
This is the most advanced technology which is available in the treatment of cataracts. This blade free surgery uses combination of both the phacoemulsification and femtosecond laser to get accurate results.


Small Incision Cataract surgery (SICS)
Here the cataract is manually removed through a self sealing incision without using phacoemulsification.
