Cataract Services

The human eye is much like a camera and similar to the camera, the eye has a lens. The function of the lens is to filter and focus light entering the eye on the retina so that a sharp image is formed.

Cataract is an ageing process where our clear lens becomes cloudy and opaque. This progresses over time, gradually making the vision blurred and hence, making it harder to see.

The causes of cataract are:

  • Normal ageing process

Symptoms of Cataract:

  • Blurred Vision
  • Light from the sun or a lamp seem too bright or glaring.
  • Increased glare from oncoming headlights when you drive at night
  • Colors may not appear as bright as they once did.

Cataract Surgery is the only treatment available in the world today. The commonest technique is phacoemulsification. This is a modern, sophisticated surgery that involves removing the cataractous lens through a small incision. This is followed by placing an artificial lens in place of the human lens.

We, at Zamindar Eye Centre, do a completely bloodless, suture-less and injection-less Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS) using the latest Infinity Ozil Phaco System.

Dr. Zamindar’s Microsurgical Eye Centre is a premium institute for Cataract Surgery since 20 years. We have a complete cataract workstation which includes an optical biometry for accurate pre-cataract assessment and, scan protocol which includes OCT (Optical Tomography Coherence) to give the correct visual prognosis to our cataract patients which is our core competence.

We offer Micro-Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS). The procedure is quick, suture-less, bloodless, painless and injection-less. The patients recovers within a day.

Phacoemulsification or Phaco is a surgical technique where a micro incision of 2.2 mm is made, cataract is removed and a foldable intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted in place of the natural lens. Our surgery allows the patient to resume routine activities on the same day.

With advancement in technology, there are many different types of Intra-Ocular Lens available to suit every need

  • Mono-Focal Intra-Ocular Lens which helps in seeing far distances clearly (for reading, spectacles are required)
  • For patients with high astigmatism, Toric IOLs are now available.
  • If a patient wishes to be spectacle free, post surgery, they can opt for Multi-Focal Intra-Ocular lens which ensures clear vision at far, intermediate and near distances.

In the modern scenario it is preferable to operate when the cataract is immature or ‘unripe’. If the cataract is left to ripen, it may give rise to other complications.

Please do not wait, if you have the following symptoms

1. Gradual progressing blurred vision

2. Rainbow halos around light

3. Glare

Go meet your eye doctor today, you might be having cataract.

A cataract starts out small and at first has little effect on your vision. You may notice that your vision is blurred a little, like looking through a cloudy piece of glass or viewing an impressionist painting.
