No injection, no stitch & no pad Phacoemulsification Cataract Treatment with Alcon Panoptix /Alcon Restor Multifocal IOL / IQ Acrysof Intra Ocular Lens {IOL} implantation are the Premium choices amongst Patients. These options are the most advanced choice options for cataract management.

Doctors at Drishti Eye Found are amongst the first to employ 2.2mm and 1.8mm incisions {using ULTRA SLEEVE} micro coaxial technique with the latest "Torsional Phacoemulsification" feature of the Centurion Phaco Machine from Alcon with higher order Monofocal and Multifocal IOL implantation.

Cataract surgery with Topical phacoemulsification is performed on an out patient basis under topical or regional anesthesia. Paracaine eye drops are used to numb the eye. No injection , No pad, No Stitch isusually required after surgery. The advantage of this technique is early Visual rehabilitation.

"Topical anesthesia has many advantages.

  1. There are no pain of Injection
  2. Risks associated with regional anesthesia are avoided.
  3. Early visual rehabilitation after surgery.
  4. This type of anesthesia is safest for cataract patients with comorbidities.

A small incision, less than2.8mm, is made. Microsurgical instruments are used to break up and suck the lens fragments from the eye (phacoemulsification). The lens capsule is left in place and polished .

A foldable intraocular lens is inserted through the wound which unfolds in place of the natural lens inside the eye. The incision is self-sealing so that no stitches are needed, which allows the eye to heal faster and more naturally.

Causes of Cataract

Many things can cause a cataract to form, including diabetes, but it is believed that natural aging is the main culprit—at least for 99 percent of cataract sufferers (the other 1 percent are born with congenital cataracts, sometimes due to metabolic disorders or intrauterine infections). For the majority of people with age-related cataracts, age-related cataracts : A clouding of the eye's lens that blocks passage of light to the retina, resulting in impaired vision. Often a result of normal aging, cataracts form when protein clumps cloud areas of the eye's lens. As the cataract progresses, vision worsens and often requires surgical replacement of the damaged lens with an artificial one. or acquired cataracts, these develop very slowly and painlessly over the years and are often initially discovered by an eye doctor during routine exams, but may not be treated until your cataract impedes upon daily activities.

Cataract prevention

While many doctors believe that nothing prevents most cataracts from forming, there is some promising research and things you can start doing now for possible cataract prevention (if you don’t have them already) or to slow down the development of a cataract. Such as:

  • Wear sunglasses to block out the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight.
  • Eat foods containing high amounts of antioxidants, meaning fruits and vegetables. People who eat large amounts of green, leafy vegetables, such as kale and spinach, which are rich in the nutrients lutein and zeaxanthin, show lower risk for cataracts./li>
  • Have your cholesterol checked by your doctor. It could be that there is a link between high cholesterol levels and cataracts, as some studies suggest that the use of statins, a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs, may help prevent the formation of nuclear cataracts.
