Cataract Eye Surgery In Goa At Budget Friendly Packages

Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a surgical treatment in which the lens inside the eyes are removed because they have become cloudy due to reasons like an eye injury, aging or any other reasons. In most situations, the cataract surgeon removes the original lens and replaces it with an artificial lens implant also called as intraocular lens, or IOL. This surgery helps in restoring the patient’s vision and remove the need for thick glasses after surgery. Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed medical procedures in the world. 




Types of Cataract


  • A person may suffer from any one of the mentioned 3 types of cataracts:
  • A nuclear cataract is found in the center of the lens, the nucleus can be commonly seen as it forms and this cataract is caused due to changes in the protein structure.
  •   A cortical cataract begins on the outer part of the lens and slowly extends inside to the center. A common eye problem with people suffering from diabetes.
  •   A sub capsular cataract starts at the backside of the lens. People who suffer from diabetes, retinitis pigmentosa, high farsightedness, or those taking high doses of steroids are at high risk of getting this type of cataract.

Cataract Surgery Procedure

If vision is not restored with prescribed spectacles, then an eye surgery is required to replace the clouded eye lens with clear artificial lens. Cataract surgery procedure is an outpatient treatment that requires only 15-20 minutes. The surgeon performs the procedure called phacoemulsification under a local anesthesia or sedative drops. It is performed by making a small incision on the side of the cornea of the eye. Then a small device is placed into the opening of the eye which produces ultrasound vibration and breaks the eye lens into small pieces. These fragments are later cleaned by suction. The surgeon then inserts an artificial implant called intraocular lens and replaces it with the natural lens. The intraocular lens can be made of acrylic, plastic, or silicone with a suitable optical power. The process is referred intraocular lens implantation.

Recovery from Cataract Surgery

Depending on the type of cataract surgery you underwent and your eye condition, post-surgery recovery requires minimum of 1 month. After a month, a final review for spectacles/eyeglasses is done. The eye may still continue to heal even after this. Heavy and strenuous activities should be avoided although you can perform your daily activities normally.
