The natural translucent lens of the eye becomes opaque, obstructing your ability to see properly. The lens, which is a transparent component in your eye, functions similarly to a camera lens. A cataract makes it difficult to see clearly, much like a cloudy camera lens dims everything.
An ophthalmologist can identify the existence and size of a cataract during a full eye examination. Other disorders that might impair vision, such as glaucoma or abnormalities with the cornea, retina, or optic nerve, can also be discovered.
A cataract can only be corrected with surgery. Neither glasses nor medications will help.
Cataract surgery is a day care, microscopic surgery performed under anaesthesia eye drops or Cataract surgery is a tiny, day-care procedure that is conducted under anaesthetic eye drops or local anaesthetic. An ultrasonic handpiece is used to remove the clouded lens, and a permanent prosthetic intraocular lens is placed. With the advancement of technology and improved intraocular lenses, it is now possible to eliminate the need for glasses for both distant and close vision.
After cataract surgery, you can resume practically all of your normal activities right away. Medication must be taken according to the directions.
Monofocal IOLs, Multifocal IOLs, Toric IOLs, Accomdative IOLs, Trifocal IOLs, and EDOF IOLs are all types of intraocular lenses.
