Cataract is one of the most common ocular disorders prevalent in India. Cataract surgeries are the most commonly performed surgeries in the world. Cataract is truly not a disease but an age related change that occurs in the eye. Just like a lens in a camera, the lens inside the eye focuses images of objects. The lens is a clear, glass like structure when we are young, and when we age this clear lens turns opaque resulting in poor vision. This is called cataract.
The average age when a person develops cataract is around 60 to 75 years.However, cataract can develop earlier, or later in life. Cataract can be treated surgically. But, the timing of surgery is flexible. One need not wait for the cataract to be complete (mature) to plan for surgery. Surgery is necessary when the vision is not up to one’s satisfaction. Modern cataract surgery involves removal of the cataract through a micro- incision and replacing it with an artificial lens (IOL).
Advances in medical technology make cataract surgery a day care procedure where the duration for surgery typically lasts around 6 to 7 minutes with no injections or stitches. Following this,near normal vision is restored. Routine activity including driving, cooking or watching TV can be resumed within a few days after the procedure.
