What are cataracts?
A cataract is an opacity (or cloudiness) in the lens of the eye. This cloudiness develops inside the lens and restricts light passing through the eye and reaching the retina. When this occurs, vision is affected. An opacity can be quite minor or it can become so marked that it prevents adequate vision.
How is cataract treated?
Only cataracts causing symptoms need treatment. Modern cataract or lens replacement surgery is effective in restoring vision to most patients. This involves removing the cloudy lens from inside the eye through a small incision, and replacing it with a new artificial lens, also called IOL
IT IS A STITCHLESS, CATARACT SURGERY: the safest for the patient.
