Locally termed as ‘Safed Motia’, Cataract refers to the clouding of the natural lens inside the human eye. This condition leads to blurred vision. If you’re the one facing an advanced stage of cataract and glasses don’t help, then undergoing a cataract surgery is the only option. Well, your doctor would advise you as to whether the stitch-based (ECCE) or the stitchless (Phaco) cataract surgery would suit you the best. While the former type of surgery involves the manual removal of the lens using non-foldable IOL (Intraocular lens), the latter one uses the ultrasound power for breaking the hard cataract into small pieces which are further sucked through a small 1.5-2.8mm incision. While both types of surgeries work best for restoring vision in patients suffering from cataract; the Phaco cataract surgery, also called Phacoemulsification is preferred more.
At Ahuja Eye Centre & Dental Clinic, we make sure our patients face minimal pain during the process of cataract removal. In accordance to this belief, all our skilled cataract surgeons perform the stitchless cataract surgery under Topical Anaesthesia which doesn’t expect the patient to receive an injection. Only anaesthetic drops are being out into the patient’s eye before starting off with the surgery. Therefore, the patient feels very little discomfort and can usually head back home just a few hours after the cataract surgery. We possess many years of experience in implanting the best-quality intraocular lenses including the trifocal and multifocal toric lenses that render perfect unaided vision to patients.
All patients who come to us for undergoing Phaco stitchless cataract surgery are allowed to resume their normal routine activities within a few hours of the operation. Additionally, there are absolutely no restrictions on the diet, reading, television viewing etc. that the patient might refrain from quitting. Generally, a minor hazy vision, watering, mild redness or sensation of having a foreign body in the operated eye might bother you but the same disappears within the next couple of days. We advise you to wear tinted glasses while indulging in outdoor activities.
