Cataract Eye Surgery Treatment

Once your eye doctor has diagnosed a cataract that is affecting your vision, using surgery to remove the cloudy lens is the only way to treat it. In small -incision surgery, a very small opening of about an eighth of an inch is made in the eye, and an ultrasound instrument breaks the cataract into small pieces and then removes them. Once a permanent, clear, artificial lens implant is then inserted inside the eye in place of the natural lens to help focus light. A stitch may or may not be used to close the small opening in the eye at the end of the operation. Your eye surgeon performs this extremely delicate surgery with a powerful magnifying microscope.

What To Expect Before And During Cataract Surgery:

Once you and your eye doctor have decided to have your cataract removed, your eye will be measured in the office for the new artificial implant. Your surgery will usually be an outpatient or same-day surgery, meaning that if your surgery goes well, you will come to the hospital the day of the surgery and go home after the operation on the same day. You will be asked not to eat or drink after midnight the night before your surgery to avoid having an upset stomach during your surgery.

Most patients are not put completely to sleep for cataract surgery, but instead may be given intravenous sedation to relax, as well as numbing eye drops or a numbing injection around the eye. During the surgery, you may hear your surgeon speak or the sound of instruments working, and you may see bright lights and changing colors, but you will not see the details of the actual surgery. Near the end, the microscope light may become very bright as your lens implant is fitted inside your eye ...

Cataract Symptoms and Treatments

A cataract is a natural clouding of the normally clear lens inside the eye that occurs with age. Light must pass through the lens to reach the retina, and a cataract makes the vision hazy. Cataracts are part of the aging process and are found in over 75% of people over the age of 70. The lens is clear at birth, but with time it becomes hazier and more yellow or brown. Cataracts are one of the most common causes of treatable, reversible vision loss.

The most common type of cataract is an age-related cataract. Much less commonly, cataracts can be present at birth, these are called congenital cataracts. A cataract that forms as a result of an eye injury is a traumatic cataract. Certain medical conditions (such as diabetes) and certain medicines (such as steroids) can impossible to predict how quickly a cataract will progress. In most cases, cataracts do not cause permanent damage to the eye besides affecting the vision. However, rare cases of extremely advanced cataracts may result in inflammation or high eye pressure.

Symptoms You May Experience:
Your vision may gradually become blurred over months or years and you may notice sensitivity to light or glare. Poor night vision, difficulty driving, and needing brighter light to read are common symptoms of cataracts. Some people also experience double vision in one eye, fading or yellowing of colors, or frequent eyeglass prescription changes, especially after years of stable vision. Cataracts may cause some people to no longer need their eyeglasses as the cataract changes the way the eye refracts, or bends, light (known as "second sight"). Cataracts are so named (the word means "waterfall") because having a cataract may give the impression of looking through the mist or fog from a waterfall. Cataracts are typically painless ...
