The surgery performed to heal Cataract involves extracting the damaged natural lens that has tuned cloudy and yellow.
Having affected more than 20 million people globally, there is enough conclusive evidence that age-related cataracts are responsible for more than 51% of world blindness today.
Those with cataract commonly experience difficulty appreciating colors and changes in contrast, driving, reading, recognizing faces, and experience problems coping with glare from bright lights.
There are several good reasons to have cataracts fixed. Restoring clear, colorful vision certainly tops the list.
Cataract is a condition of the eye wherein the eye lens becomes progressively cloudy or opaque. This decreases or blurs vision over time and may even cause blindness.
IOLs (Intra Ocular Lens) are artificial lenses which are surgically implanted in the eye, replacing the eye's natural lens removed during cataract surgery. These lenses help your eye regain both the focusing and refractive ability.These IOLs may be used to treat myopia, hyperopia, and presbyopia allowing less reliance on visual aids like eyeglasses and contact lenses to help you see clearly. Mainly, there are two types of IOL available - Non-foldable & Foldable. Foldable lenses can further be categorized into two types - Monofocal & Multifocal.
