Cataract treatment in India
A major part of our brain supports the functioning of eye and problems in the eye can cause significant disturbance to the patient. The eye is one of the most important sensory organs and demands a lot of protection. Negligence to eye protection can make them weak and can cause certain conditions such as cataracts. A cataract is the problems in the eye lens that lies behind iris and pupil; the lens becomes cloudy which leads to blurred vision or sometimes vision loss. The condition usually happens to old age people as the lens in the eye begins to deteriorate as the personages.
There are three main types of cataracts, which are nuclear cataract, cortical cataract, and subcapsular cataract. Subcapsular cataract forms at the back of the eye lens and people with this condition often find it hard to read. A diabetic patient is at a higher risk of developing this type of cataract. Whereas in cortical cataract, the wedge-shaped opaque structure is found in the lens-cortex, causing pain and discomfort in the eye of the patient. And nuclear cataract is formed when the lens of the eye hardens and becomes yellowish with the passing years. This is most commonly found in people above 50 years.

Cataract Removal- Replacing the faulty eye lens and improving the vision
The only option to improve the eye condition of the patient with cataract is cataract eye removal,w which is basically a surgery performed by our well-experienced surgeon in which the deteriorating and cloudy eye lens is removed and replaced with a normal and high-quality eye lens. The new lens improves the vision of the patient as they now have a good-quality lens to observe everything and can get rid of their cataract.
Cataract eye surgery is the only option when the cataract in the eye stiffens and becomes obscure and is causing major discomfort to the patient. The type of surgery is done on the basis of the severity of your cataract. Cataract can be removed by employing the laser method, using an ultrasound probe or it can take out of the eye by making an incision.
The two main types of cataract-removal procedures in India
There are different types of cataract eye procedures in India but the two main types are Extracapsular Cataract Extraction (ECCE) and Phacoemulsification. Let us have a quick look at both the methods of cataract eye removal.
Extracapsular Cataract Extraction (ECCE)
Extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) is another type of cataract eye removal where the defected eye lens is pulled out from the eye, and intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted in place of it. In the process of ECCE, the surgeon makes large incisions of about 12mm on the side of the cornea. He then takes out the blurry and faulty lens and palace the best quality IOL (Intraocular Lens) via these large incisions.
Once cataract extraction is done, he closes the large incisions and makes a protective shield over the replaced eye lens. The aim of the surgery is to revive the effective eye function and vision by extracting the obscure lens from the eye.
Phacoemulsification is the most sought after cataract eye removal process as the process is safe as compared to other procedures and offers a speedy recovery. Our surgeons use the latest surgical tools when operating the patients for eye removal with the help of this modern technique. In the process of phacoemulsification, small incisions are made into the eye of the patient (smaller than compared to those made in the traditional cataract surgery) for removing the faulty lens from the eye.
The surgeon makes two 2mm small incisions into the eye of the patient with a scalpel. Then, he makes an opening on the outer surface of the lens and enters a small ultrasound probe into it. The ultrasound waves coming out of the probe are concentrated on the center of the lens in order to destroy the cataract into small pieces. The broken pieces are later sucked out from the eye via aspiration. Afterward, an artificial intraocular lens is placed in the eye of the patient and the incisions are closed.
This latest method is quite simple and safe and is comparatively a less risky procedure for having your cataract permanently removed. The small incision makes it an effective procedure causing less scarring and damage in the eye when implanting an artificial lens.
