What is Cataract Eye Surgery?

Within our eyes, there exists a natural lens that bends incoming light rays, facilitating our ability to see clearly. For optimal vision, this lens must remain transparent and unclouded. However, a cataract represents a clouding of this typically clear lens. Imagine it as akin to peering through a frosted or misty window for those afflicted with cataracts. While most cataracts develop slowly and initially do not impact vision, they gradually encroach upon it over time. When a cataract begins to interfere with your vision or daily activities, it may be time to consider cataract surgery—a safe and effective procedure.

About Cataract Eye Surgery:

Cataract surgery entails the removal of the clouded or opaque lens, which is then replaced with an artificial lens known as the intraocular lens (IOL). This intraocular lens is positioned in the same location as the natural lens, becoming a permanent fixture within the eye.

Cataract surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis and is renowned for its safety and effectiveness.

It is normal to experience mild discomfort, dryness, and sensitivity to light during the days following the surgery.

Procedure at Iksha

1. Numbing Medication:

Your healthcare provider administers numbing eye drops or an injection, and you may receive additional medications as needed.

2. Cataract Removal:

Utilizing a specialised microscope, your provider performs cataract removal through tiny incisions.

3. Recovery:

Stitches are typically unnecessary, as the small incisions naturally close on their own. Your provider may use tape to secure them.
