Advanced Cataract Eye Surgery

Patient education

Despite rapid strides being made in the field of cataract eye surgery in the last few decades, it continues to remain the leading cause of reversible blindness in our country. We at R & R Eye Care have been pioneers in the field of cataract surgery offering cutting edge technology and a high standard of care to a large population.

How does Cataract form?

The natural crystalline lens of our eye is clear which allows light to be focused clearly on the retina. With ageing, this lens loses its transparency and gradually becomes clouded thereby imparing vision.

What are the causes?

Although most cataracts are related to aging, there are other types of cataract:

  • Secondary cataract: Cataracts can form after surgery for other eye problems, such as glaucoma. Cataracts also can develop in people who have other health problems, such as diabetes. Cataracts are sometimes linked to steroid use.
  • Traumatic cataract: Cataracts can develop after an eye injury, sometimes years later
  • Congenital cataract: Some babies are born with cataracts or develop them in childhood, often in both eyes. These cataracts may be so small that they do not affect vision. If they do, the lenses may need to be removed.
  • Radiation cataract: Cataracts can develop after exposure to some types of radiation.

Who is at risk for cataract?

The risk of cataract increases with age. Other risk factors for cataract include:

  • Certain diseases such as diabetes.
  • Personal behavior such as smoking.
  • The environment such as prolonged exposure to sunlight.
