An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosing, treating and preventing eye diseases. Cataract is the most common cause of vision loss, which occurs when the lens inside the eyes becomes cloudy or opaque. Cataract is caused by age-related changes that affect transparency of the lens. Cataracts can be removed with surgery to restore clear vision for many patients.
There are two types of cataract: posterior subcapsular Cataracts (PSC) and cortical Cataracts (CC).
Cataracts develop over time and patients often experience no symptoms until they have progressed significantly. The progression of Cataract results in clouding and discoloration of the lenses within our eyes causing an effect known as Cataracts or Cataract.
Cataracts can be removed through Cataract surgery, which is generally well-tolerated by elderly patients, but it may not eliminate all of the cloudiness in the lenses. Cataract surgery involves replacing your natural lens with an artificial one made out of clear plastic (acrylic) allowing you to have clear vision.
A Cataract occur when the natural crystalline lens inside our eye becomes progressively more opaque and cloudy over time due to age related changes causing a gradual decrease in vision. Cataracts can be treated using Cataract Surgery and Intraocular Lens (IOL).
Cataract Surgery allows removal of the old cataractic lens so that a new one can be implanted in its place. Cataract Surgery generally takes less than 30 minutes and Cataracts, Cataract Surgery is a very common procedure performed on over 10 million people each year. Cataract surgery can restore vision to some extent for many patients suffering from Cataracts.
