What is Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the lens of the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. Cataracts often develop slowly and can affect one or both eyes. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry or double vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night.

In cataract surgery, the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy is removed and replaced with an artificial lens (called an intraocular lens, or IOL) to restore clear vision. The procedure typically is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require an overnight stay in a hospital or other care facility.Most modern cataract procedures involve the use of a high-frequency ultrasound device that breaks up the cloudy lens into small pieces, which are then gently removed from the eye with suction. This procedure, called phacoemulsification or "phaco,"

Dr. Kothari’s eye hospital is equipped with latest phaco machines to offer great and accurate results following surgery.

Laser Cataract Surgery

Recenly femtosecond laser has been approved by FDA for use in cataract surgery.
These lasers can be used for following steps in cataract surgery, reducing the need for surgical blades and other hand-held tools:

  1. Creating corneal incisions to allow the surgeon access to the lens
  2. Removing the anterior capsule of the lens
  3. Fragmenting the cataract (so less phaco energy is required to break it up and remove it)
  4. Creating peripheral corneal incisions to reduce astigmatism (when needed)
