In this video, SimpliHealth expert, Dr.Rajeev Mirchia, eye specialist at Mirchai’s Laser Eye clinic, Chandigarh is talking about cataract surgery (मोतियाबिंद) and its complications.
Cataract problems increase with advancing age. The actual God’s eye lens gets cloudy in this condition, just like frosting glasses. When an eye lens cannot reflect light, it causes blurry vision, or the incident light may produce glare which gives a blinding effect. Due to smaller pupils and cataract advancement, the patient starts losing sight. The cloudy lens is the first type of cataract. Cataract eye surgery & recovery time?
Advanced cataract surgery
Nowadays, cataract operation can be performed at your convenience and takes significantly less time. Cataract surgery nowadays takes less than 10-15 minutes. In this procedure, we remove the cloudy lens and implant it with the artificial lens, called an intraocular lens. We don’t stitch or dress in this procedure, and we don’t require any abstinence.
It is a painless procedure. We perform this surgery in drops, and the patient is free after 10-15 minutes. We must avoid splashes of water or any infection to the operated eye; however, we prescribe eye drops, and the patient heals fast. We can perform cataract surgery in two ways. One is Phacoemulsification which again is stitch less or otherwise we have a very advanced procedure, laser or flex surgery. To some, it is robotic surgery. Some call this robotic surgery.
We achieve 90 percent of cataract healing through the touchless procedure. The laser melts the lens, and the liquefy makes the lens soft, and we remove the pieces and implant an artificial lens. With technological advancement, any lens is available. we need to make a port of 2.2-2.8mm to implant the artificial lens
A few mini lenses require an incision of 1.2 to 1.8 mm with the help of a mini lens. We need to make a small port size which reduces the recovery time. And healing is much better. The third thing is that lenses can be unilocular, multifocal, or bifocal nowadays. Mini focal lenses improve farsightedness; however, we do require lenses for nearsighted lenses.
The multifocal or bifocal lens gives almost near natural vision. We can’t mimic God-made eyes. It works for most people, and they are back to their routine. We require a small power lens in multifocal. Binocular, we must abstain from rubbing the eyes and splashing water. There are no precautions towards light intensity.
Benefits of a cataract surgery
They may wear specs to avoid contact with dust in their eyes. We can do all our work without hesitation. Before surgery, we must consult our eye doctor for all these things; we must get our retina examined, consult our doctor about the suitable lens, and plan the surgery accordingly. These days this surgery has no connection with the weather. That was a complete myth that people used to avoid eye operations in the rainy or summer season. Still, I will advise you to consult your doctor to clear all your doubts before planning the surgery.
