SECONDARY CATARACT

In several cases, cataract develops as a result of some other primary ocular disease such as chronic eye inflammation or glaucoma.

STEROID-INDUCED CATARACT

Excess intake of oral steroid or putting steroid drops in the eye can cause cataract. It is always advised to consult a doctor before using one.

METABOLIC CATARACT

PRINCIPLE - Basic Principle of cataract treatment is removal of cloudy lens by surgery and insertion of artifical intraocular lens(IOL)

you need to make following two decision before undergoing cataract surgery


1. Technique of surgery:- MICS (Microincision Catarat Surgery) or Bladeless Femto Laser Robotic Cataract Surgery. Basic principle of replacement of cloudy lens by artifical lens remaning the same, in MICS the surgeon makes the incisions by surgical instrument where as in robotic cataract surgery the incisions are made using computer programing and advanced femto laser technology.


2. Type of IOL:- Intra Ocular lens selction depends upon your vision needs and life style like you mainly need near vision eg. writers etc. or distant vision or both.

Type of Cataract Surgery

Micro Incision Cataract Surgery
(MICS)

The visual outcomes and recovery time are much better compared to conventional treatments as the incision size is even smaller. Our MICS cataract surgery cost in Delhi India is most affordable and cost-effective.

Bladeless Femto Laser Cataract Surgery (ROBOTIC SURGERY)

Bladeless Femto Laser Cataract Surgery is the epitome of technology for cataract treatment. The treatment uses computer programming and laser energy to perform the surgery. The whole process can be completed in less than a minute with robotic accuracy and minimal incision. The use of femtosecond laser for fragmentation of the cataract in smaller, softer pieces allows cataract removal through reduced phaco time and power. This is especially useful in complicated cases and compromised corneas..

TYPES OF IOL

Monofocal IOL

These are the standard intraocular lenses and can correct vision according to one focusing distance - nearsightedness, far and immediate. We offer a wide range of brands of IOLs for patients to choose from.

Acryfold | Biotech | AMO | ALCON | ZEISS | BAUSCH AND LAUMB

Multifocal IOL

Multifocial IOL can correct multiple errors in the eye. It allows a more clear vision compared to monofocal IOL. Visual activity is comparable to Monofocal IOL for distant vision. Spectacles for near vision are not needed.

Acrydiff | Idiff | AMO
| ALCON ( Novartis )

TORIC LENSES

Toric lenses are the premium intraocular lenses that can reduce corneal astigmatism and blurry vision. It can help correct a range of diopters of astigmatism and is the most preferred type of lenses.

AMO | Biotech

Cataract FAQ

Age is a primary reason for cataract. About half the population by the age of 60 has cataract while around 80 per cent people have cataract in at least one eye by the age of 70 years. With age protein of the lens turns opaque. In the initial stage the lens bends light rays irregularly, which requires prescription glasses of higher number to correct it. Metabolic disorders like diabetes and hypothyroidism predisposes the patient to cataract. Excessive exposure to sunlight too is believed to cause cataract. Similarly air pollution too is believed to be responsible for cataract. Lifestyle concerns like heavy alcohol consumption and smoking too contribute to the development of cataract. Injury to eye can also lead to clouding of the lens of the eye.
Cataract can make simple day to day living difficult. The symptoms are :
progressive nearsightedness in older people problems driving at night such as glare from oncoming headlights, problems with glare during the day, double vision (like a superimposed image) and sudden changes in glasses prescription.
When cataract forms, surgery is the only way to treat it. In cataract surgery the surgeon removes the clouded lens and puts an Intra Ocular Lens (IOL) in your eyes. Your vision will be as good as pre-cataract days, though you may need to wear glasses depending upon the intraocular lens used. Over the years, cataract surgery has moved from vision restorative to refractive surgery, so that you have reduced need of glasses. At Spectraeye, we have best cataract surgeon in Delhi.
  • Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS)
  • Femtosecond Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery
Femtosecond laser assisted cataract surgery a leap ahead of the traditional cataract surgery (MICS) in delhi. It has converted cataract surgery, a manual multi-step, multi-tool procedure to one with laser created, surgeon controlled precision.
  • It is 100 per cent blade free, hence safer surgery.
  • Surgical process takes less than 1 minute.
  • Femtosecond laser allows computerized programming of corneal incisions. The precisely structured incisions are self-sealing that minimize the risk of post-operative infections.
  • Enhanced visual outcome resulting from consistent circular laser-created capsulorrhexis and better centering of the intraocular lens (IOL) leading to improved surgical results.
  • The use of femtosecond laser for fragmentation of the cataract in smaller, softer pieces allows for the removal of cataract through reduced phaco time and power. This is especially useful in complicated cases and compromised corneas.
  • Quicker post procedure recovery
This is the most common surgical technique used for cataract surgery these days. Over the years, the size of corneal incision made during cataract surgery has considerably reduced leading to improved visual outcome and quicker post procedure recovery. In MICS, a very small incision of about 2 mm is given by which cataract lens is emulsified into small pieces (by an ultrasonic probe) and a foldable IOL is implanted. Hence, it is stitchless, bloodless and painless surgery.
After cataract operation, expect your vision to begin improving within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye heals and adjusts. Colors may seem brighter after your surgery because you are looking through a new, clear lens. A cataract is usually yellow- or brown-tinted before surgery, muting the look of colors
You should be able to return to work within 1-2 weeks after surgery. If you work from home and simply use a computer you can resume work as soon as you feel comfortable to do so.
It depends.
If you choose standard cataract surgery with intraocular lens (IOL) implantation, its likely you will need reading glasses and possibly computer glasses or other special-purpose eyewear afterward, depending on your visual needs.
But there also are cataract surgery options that can reduce or sometimes even eliminate your need for glasses. In particular, the combination of laser cataract surgery and premium implantable lenses such as multifocal IOLs and accommodating IOLs can provide excellent outcomes that enable many people to be glasses-free for much of their day.
Yes, it can be treated. Infact, hypermature cataract is more difficult to operate. Infact, earlier it was a myth that one should wait for cataract to mature fully but now you can get cataract6 surgery done. as soon as you have visual problems even if the cataractous lens changes are in early stage.
For those who want to achieve optimum vision at all distances, multifocal IOLs are the intraocular lenses for you. Unlike monofocal IOLs, multifocal lenses allow you to see well at more than one distance. They also reduce the need for contact lenses and glasses after a cataract surgery. In fact, most patients don’t wear contacts or glasses at all when multifocal IOLs are implanted into both eyes.
Non-foldable Rigid IOLs are usually made of a medical grade plastic called PMMA and have a maximum width of 5 to 6mm. Hence to insert them into the eye, the incision in the eye also has to be approximately the same size. They can be inserted after any type of cataract surgery.
The foldable IOLs are made of acrylic or silicon material and can be folded so as to enable them to be slipped into the eye through a smaller incision, even as small as 1mm. These can only be inserted in a folded state, after cataract surgery by phacoemulsification.
  • A test for your existing glasses prescription
  • A full ocular examination
  • Biometry tests
  • Corneal topography
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Blood pressure measurements
  • Blood sugar measurements in diabetic patients
Yes, With advancements in surgical techniques and IOL designs (Toric intraocular lens), today both spherical and cylinder components of eye can easily be corrected with highest precision.
