What is a Cataract?
A cataract is when the lens, a small transparent disc inside your eye, develops cloudy patches. Over time these patches usually become bigger causing blurry, misty vision and eventually blindness.
The condition can affect one or both of your eyes.
It's one of the most common operations performed in the world, with a high success rate in improving your eyesight.
Why do I need Cataract Surgery?
You may have been diagnosed at a routine screening by an optician or you might have experienced the below symptoms:
- Cloudy vision
- Changes in colour vision
- Glare while driving
- Difficulty with reading
- Glasses prescription changes
- Double vision or ghosting of images (especially if only noticeable in one eye)
The aim of the surgery is to restore your vision to the pre-cataract state by removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with an artificial one.
However, if you had vision problems prior to developing cataracts (whether you were short-sighted or long-sighted), surgery can also correct your vision.
If you usually wear glasses or contact lenses, you can choose a multifocal lens implant which could mean that you'll no longer need to wear your glasses or contact lenses.
Before having your cataract surgery procedure, your ophthalmologist will test your eyesight and recommend the perfect lens for you.
Currently, there is no other treatment for cataracts other than surgery.
