Cataract Frequently Asked Questions

The most common symptom is blurred vision. As the cataract develops, the progressive clouding can make night driving difficult by intensifying the reflection of lights. Symptoms differ from one person to the next. It depends on the type of cataract and how far it has progressed.

Diet, medicine, eye drops or exercise have not been shown to retard or prevent the development of cataract. A cataract does not result from using the eyes too much, or by reading in bad light.

Ideally with modern methods, cataract can be removed at any stage, but it should be operated when it interferes with your daily life.

With the modern technique of Phaco, the cataract needs to be broken inside the eye. As the cataract advances it hardens making it difficult to remove by Phaco. Over-matured cataract can burst in the eye and result in complete loss of vision. Thus Phaco surgery needs to be done while the cataract is still soft.

Phacoemulsification is a good technique with advantage of micro incision, no stitches, safer and faster recovery.

Foldable lenses are good as they can be inserted through micro incision requiring only a small puncture. With advance optics foldable lenses the quality of vision especially at night and low light conditions is much better.

Use drops as directed. Wear protective sunglasses whenever you are outside on sunny days if the glare causes discomfort. Avoid direct pressure on the eye ? don't rub or scratch the eye.

Avoid rubbing the eye or compression (while sleeping) for a month.

Avoid dust, pollution and water entering the eyes for a month.

Head baths should be avoided for 30 days.

Follow the medication guideline strictly and maintain good eye hygiene.

It depends on the eye and the healing responses of the body. Gross work can be done without glasses but fine work may require a visual aid.

Daily routine work can be resumed after a rest of 2 days depending on the work environment. Dust, pollution and stressful conditions should be avoided.

The natural lens covering thickens over time which causes blurred vision, known as "after cataract" or "Charri". This can be removed without surgery using a laser.
