Cataract is the No. 1 eye disease that causing blind. Ageing, Mechanical, Chemical, operation, inflammation are some of the factors that change the intraocular environment to affect lens metabolism. Sometimes Congenital factors are also reasons for the disease.
In a normal eye, the Light passes through the cornea and the pupil to the lens. The lens focuses light & producing clear, sharp images on the retina.
But in a cataract affected the eye, the lens becomes clouded, which scatters the light and prevents a sharply defined image from reaching the retina. As a result, vision becomes blurred.
How is it Performed?
Glasses: If the Refractive power of the natural lens could be maintained again then the doctor will refer you to use glasses.
Surgical removal: when visual acuity can't be improved with glasses.
Phacoemulsification method:- Phacoemulsification in cataract surgery involves insertion of a tiny, hollowed tip that uses high frequency (ultrasonic) vibrations to "break up" the eye's cloudy lens (cataract). The same tip is used to suction out the lens.
Extra-capsular Cataract Extraction (ECCE): In this surgery, The nucleus and the cortex are removed out of the capsule leaving behind Intact posterior capsule, Peripheral part of the anterior capsule and Zonules.
Intracapsular method:- The lens is removed as one single piece i.e., the nucleus and the cortex are removed from the capsule of the lens after breaking the zonules.
