Cataract is a condition where the natural lens in the eye becomes cloudy and hard causing unclear vision and disturbance in daily lifestyle. It can happen to even new born babies. A comprehensive examination is needed to diagnose Cataract. It is an irreversible chemical reaction and surgery is the only treatment option.
Cataract is a progressive condition and as it is age related, people mistake it for ageing symptoms. It is painless and causes blurriness in vision on various degrees. The degree of symptoms can be very mild to as extreme that it may cause problems in doing everyday tasks.
SURGERY IS THE ONLY TREATMENT OPTION FOR CATARACT
The cost of cataract surgery depends on the type of surgery and the lens you choose. Also cataract surgery may be covered by the medical insurance policy.

Cataracts can only be effectively treated by surgically replacing the damaged natural eye lens with an artificial lens implant. Traditional surgical techniques or laser-assisted methods can be used to perform the surgery. Laser-assisted cataract surgery eliminates the need for stitches and significantly reduces recovery time. The best part is that the cataract will never return after surgery.
Cataract treatment has been revolutionized by laser surgery. Laser-assisted cataract surgery is more precise than traditional surgery and provides pain-free recovery.
Cataract surgery is not a painful procedure. While patients are awake during surgery, they experience little to no discomfort. Before the surgery, a mild sedative is given to calm the nerves, and eye drops are used to numb the eye.
Cataract surgery is a simple procedure that typically takes 30 to 45 minutes. It is frequently performed as day surgery under local anesthesia, and you should be able to go home the same day.
A cataract cannot return after surgery.
These artificial lenses, unlike our natural lenses, do not harden, yellow, or cloud over time. The lens capsule, which is the small "sac" or membrane that once surrounded and held the natural lens in place, can, however, change.
