What are cataract?

The human eye has many parts that help you create a clear vision, one of the most important parts is the lens.

The lens is basically a clear disk inside the eye; it receives light through the pupil and focuses and bends it on the retina to help you create a clear vision.

The lens is mainly composed of proteins and water, however as we go older those proteins start to condense and clump together slowly, and that is how a cataract is created.

Cataracts are basically a foggy, cloudy patches that form in the lens preventing light from going through it thus making your vision more blurry.

Cataracts are more popular amongst older people; your ophthalmologist will recommend the surgery if the cataract in interfering with your daily activities.

What are they symptoms and causes of a cataract?

Usually, the main reason for cataract creation is old age, as we get older the proteins in our eyes get denser, however there are some other factors to take into consideration such as:

  • Smoking.
  • Trauma to the head or eyes.
  • Radiation.
  • Long-term use of medications like steroids.

How to prepare for Cataract surgery?

Before the surgery you will be referred to a specialist eye doctor to have tests and an assessment.

The assessment starts by determining your IOM focusing power, you will also be asked about any medication that you are taking before the surgery.

Your doctor will also be prescribing you eye-drops to start before the surgery, these drops will help prevent any infections and help reduce the swelling during the surgery.

You should also discuss everything to do with the operation with your doctor such as:

  • Lens preference.
  • The different risks.
  • How the surgery will benefit you.
  • The length of the recovery phase.
  • If you would need glasses after the surgery.
  • What are the post-operation medicine that you will need.

Many people have what is called a monovision meaning each eye has a sight function, one eye for reading while the other is for distance.

If you prefer to stay that way you can ask your doctor to get you one near-sight lens in one eye a long-sighted in the other.

How will Cataract surgery go?

The operation will be done under local anaesthetic so your ophthalmologist will ask you to fast for at least 8 hours before the surgery.
Cataract surgery is simple and straightforward usually takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
The ophthalmologist will start by numbing your eyes using drops or he or she will be injecting a syringe around the eye.
After that the doctor will be making a small incision in your eye to remove the cloudy lens, after that the lens will be replaced with a clear plastic one.
It depends on your condition and choice but you will be choosing either a multifocal or an accommodating lens.
During the procedure you will awake, see light and movement, however you will not be able to see what the doctor is doing to your eye.
After the procedure is done the doctor will most likely not be stitching your cuts since they are self-sealing incisions, meaning they will be closed by themselves over time.
To keep the eye protected while it heals a shield will be placed on it to cover it.
After that you will be recovering for 15 to 30 minutes then you will be able to go home.
After Cataract surgery, most people do need to use glasses to perform their daily activities.
