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.

Generic Cause

There are many causes of cataract but aging is the most common factor. Cataract mostly affects those who are above 40 years of age.

Signs and symptoms

People with cataract commonly experience difficulty appreciating colors and differentiating changes in contrasts. Difficulty in driving, reading, recognizing faces and coping with glare from bright lights are other common symptoms of cataract.

Treatment

Cataract can be treated by conventional surgery. The main aim of the surgery is to remove the natural cataractous lens (the foggy one) and replace it with an artificial clear lens called IOL (Intra Ocular Lens).

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.

Monofocal Lenses

A Monofocal lens implant can fix your vision for only one distance. These are designed to provide patients with enhanced distance vision but they would still require glasses for near vision. The implant cannot change shape like your original lens. Thus, the patient has no ability to focus in or out and will be dependent on progressive bifocals for near vision.

Multifocal Lenses

They have revolutionized existing state-of-the-art cataract surgery. Multifocal IOL helps to achieve the ultimate goal of total independence from glasses.Also available are Accommodative IOLS. An accommodative IOL is hinged to work in coordination with the eye muscles. The design allows the accommodative lens to move forward as the eye focuses on near objects and move backward as it focuses on distant objects.
