Phacoemulsification is the technique, which is being used for more than a decade. The cataract procedure and its techniques have evolved dramatically improving vision in up to 99% of cases and saving millions from cataract-induced blindness.
A small incision less than 3mm is made, special microsurgical instruments are used to break up and suck the lens fragments from the eye (phacoemulsification). The back portion of the lens capsule is left in place and polished for clarity.
A small foldable intraocular lens is inserted through the wound and unfolded in place of the natural lens. The incision is self-sealing so that no stitches are needed. The no stitch incision is used because it can seal itself after Cataract Treatment without stitches, which allows the eye to heal more naturally and with greater symmetry.
The phacoemulsification technique is carried out as an outpatient procedure in stress free environment. The patients are informed about the details of the procedure. This helps in making the patient more comfortable. The patient is encouraged to bring the friends & relatives so that the apprehensions get allayed.
The state-of-the-art surgical methods allow people to return home shortly after the procedure to continue with their regular routines. The total stay in the Institute is for 2-3 hours.
Cataracts are the world’s leading cause of blindness. The latest estimation of WHO shows that almost 20 million people currently suffer from blindness caused by Age related Cataract.
Dr K.P's Eye Care Centre offers the patients a broad spectrum of products for Cataract evaluation including diagnostic instruments, device for measuring the parameters required for IOL computation & lasers for after Cataract therapy.
