Cataract facts

  • The causes of cataract include aging, diabetes, UV light (e.g. sunlight), eye injury, smoking or genetics.
  • A cataract is the clouding of our natural lens, which blocks light and images from entering the eye.
  • As we age, we are more likely to get cataracts, though children and young people occasionally can get it.
  • There is no proven medication or exercises that can reverse the cataract.

If spectacles do not reduce blurring, the only option is to remove the cataract and replace it with a clear artificial lens for improved vision.

Are there any risks? Advanced cataract surgery compared to older methods has very high success rates and few complications.

Advanced Cataract Surgery removal techniques normally allows:

  • Quick surgery - less than 30 minutes.
  • Day care surgery - less than 2 hours at surgical centre.
  • Good visual outcome with fast visual improvement.
  • Fast resumption to normal activities.
  • No discomfort or only minimal discomfort during and after surgery.
  • No stitches or eye patching needed.
  • Reduced astigmatism.
  • Surgery to be done without waiting for cataract to be mature. (Delaying removal of a mature cataract will increase the risk of the surgery.)
  • Choice of a variety of your artificial lenses, i.e. monofocal, aspheric, multifocal.

With the advent of Advanced Cataract Surgery in our modern age, you can enjoy a better quality of life with improved vision.
