All about Cataract Surgery

CATARACT TREATMENT

CATARACT:
natural lens of eye is made up of water +protein.as the eye ages, some of the proteins undergo changes ,causing eye’s lens to become discoloured & clouded which is called cataract due to cataract ,light passing through the eye becomes scattered & unfocussed, resulting in blurring of vision

TREATMENT OF CATARACT:
the only treatment of cataract is removal of natural lens & implantation of an intraocular lens

PHACOEMULSIFICATION

 safety & efficacy of cataract removal is less than catalys
 less reliable & stable post operative refractive outcomes
 capsulorhexis is variable & not centered affecting iol positioning
 excessive ultrasound power is needed for lens fragmentation
 intraoperative complication rate is comparatively more

LASER CATARACT SURGERY /CATALYS

 increases safety & efficacy of cataract removal
 reliable & stable post operative refractive outcomes
 superior centration & circularity of capsulotomy & better iol positioning
 laser pre – cuts the cataract into tiny segments making it easier to separate
 intraoperative complication rate is less compared to phaco surgery

TYPES OF INTRAOCULAR LENSES:
1) monofocal iol :restores vision for one area of focus – distance vision

2) multifocal iol:provide high quality vision at multiple distances i.e
distance , intermediate & near

the multifocal lens of choice is “symfony iol” which uses two advanced
technologies that work together –
 elongate the focus of the eye to provide the extended range of vision
 correct chromatic aberration (colour distortion) to provide sharp vision
in all lighting conditions

3) toric iol :premium iol that correct astigmatism as well as near
sightedness or farsightedness.”symfony toric iol “is the lens of choice.
