Cataract Surgery Types

We perform Phacoemulsification and MICS (Micro-Incision Cataract Surgery), advanced techniques for cataract removal and restoring vision at Save Sight Centre. The benefits are as below:

Cataract Surgery Techniques for Clear Vision

  • Small Incisions: Phacoemulsification involves microscopic eye incisions, usually under 3mm. This reduces complications and speeds healing compared to traditional method or technique.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients usually experience faster visual recovery and can resume normal activities after 7-10 days.
  • Precision: Using ultrasonic energy, the cataract is precisely removed with little eye tissue stress.
  • Customization: Phacoemulsification lets surgeons customize the treatment for each patient, improving vision and reducing glasses need.
02. MICS (Micro-Incision Cataract Surgery):
  • Ultra-Small Incisions: MICS involves even smaller incisions than traditional and phacoemulsification, typically less than 2.2mm in size. These tiny incisions promote faster healing and reduce the risk of induced astigmatism.
  • Less Discomfort: Patients have less post-operative discomfort and faster visual rehabilitation due to smaller incisions and less eye stress.
  • Minimal Disturbance: MICS gently removes cataracts without damaging the eye. This decreases inflammation and ocular edema risk.
  • Better Visual Outcomes: Many patients see better and use fewer glasses or contacts after surgery thanks to MICS' precision and accuracy.

Phacoemulsification and MICS are popular cataract removal surgeries because to their smaller incisions, faster recovery times, and better visual outcomes.

The Steps of Cataract Surgery

The surgery involves 4 simple steps.

Types of Cataract Surgery
  • Incision is made: Firstly the incision is made to break the natural lens. The length of incision depends on the type of surgery chosen i.e. Phaco or MICS.
  • Emulsification (Breaking up cloudy lens): Secondly, with the help of advance technology the lens is broken and sucked.
  • Implanting IOL: After removing the natural lens the IOL with the prescribed power is inserted and implanted there. These IOLs are foldable which makes it fit in the eyes.
  • Healing: The incision heals itself by its own. You just need to follow the post-op instructions to cure it at the earliest.

The Role of Intraocular Lens (IOL) in Cataract Removal

In this surgery, the natural lens is replaced with an IOL, restoring clear vision and transforming lives.

Role of Intraocular Lens (IOL) in Cataract Removal
  • Clear Vision: IOL replaces the cloudy natural lens, allowing you to see clearly again.
  • Reduced Dependency on Glasses: Patient will have to wear very thick glasses or special contact lenses in order to see after the surgery (if no IOL has been implanted in the eye) to replace the focusing power of the natural lens.
  • Improved Quality of Life: Helps you perform daily tasks like reading and driving without visual limitations.
  • Safety: Prevents cataracts from returning because the natural lens is removed.
  • Quick Recovery: Patients usually experience a relatively quick and comfortable recovery.
  • Permanent Solution: IOL remains in your eye, providing lasting vision improvement.

Types of Lenses (IOLs): Exploring Your Options

A intraocular lenses (or IOL) is a small, artificial lens designed for the eye. It replaces the natural lens, which is removed during this procedure.

Types of IOL in Cataract Surgery
  • Monofocal IOLs: Clarity at a Chosen Distance

    Monofocal lenses are those with one focus point, which is why they correct vision at a single distance, which is usually for near or distance vision.

    They give clear vision when you are at the desired distance, which makes them ideal for those with particular vision requirements such as distant vision while driving, or reading glasses to perform close-up tasks.

  • Multifocal IOLs: Embracing Versatility

    Multifocal lenses feature multiple focal points that allow the user to see clearly at different distances, which are typically close, intermediate, and further.

    They decrease the requirement glasses following cataract surgery or for people who suffer from presbyopia, a condition that causes the eye's lens becomes less flexible and can cause difficulty in seeing close objects.

  • Toric IOLs Correction of Astigmatism using precision

    Toric IOLs are able to be used to correct astigmatism since they have distinct powers for different meridians in the lens. Additionally, they have aligning marks on the outside of the lens which permit the surgeon to alter the direction of the IOL within the eye to provide the best astigmatism correction. The patient must wear glasses for close work but for distance vision, glasses are not required. glasses.

  • Extended Depth of Focus (EDOF) IOLs: Gradual Transition Between Focal Points

    EDOF IOLs utilize a distinctive optical design that increases your depth of field, allowing the patient with a gradual, continuous shift in focal points. The goal of this design is to minimize visual disturbances like halos and glare which are typically encountered with multifocal IOLs. They are particularly beneficial to those who wish to decrease the requirement of reading glasses and bifocals post cataract surgery.

The choice of the most appropriate IOL is a long-lasting conversation between the individual and his eye surgeon or ophthalmologist. Things like lifestyle, requirements for vision and overall health of the eye are key in determining the best choice.

  • After the surgery, expect your vision to begin improving within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye heals and adjusts.
