On the day of the surgery, the patient will check in at the outpatient center one to two hours before the scheduled time for surgery.
The Surgery : Phacoemulsification
With Phacoemulsification, the procedure can take as little as 10 minutes` time for recovery
In laser cataract surgery, microincision cataract surgery and post surgery, the patient remains in recovery for a short duration - often 15 to 20 minutes. The patient receives instructions of activities and warning signs of complications before leaving. Patient can resume his normal activities from 3 to 24 hours post operatively depending upon the job profile of the patient.
What Is Latest In Cataract Surgery At JP Eye Hospital?
Removing Cataract by cold phacoemulsification technique through 1.8 mm incision and implanting MIL (micro incision lens-1.8 mm), thereby producing no astigmatism and minimizing recovery period.
[Older designs of lenses which require 3.2-3.5 mm of incision produces astigmatism (cylindrical number) and longer recovery period post operatively]

Types Of Cataract
1. Age Related Cataract (Senile Cataract)
Early in the development of age-related Cataract the power of the lens may be increased, causing near-sightedness (myopia), and the gradual yellowing and opacification of the lens may reduce the perception of blue colors. Cataract typically progress slowly to cause vision loss and are potentially blinding if untreated. The condition usually affects both the eyes, but almost always one eye is affected earlier than the other.
2. Secondary Cataract
Complicated Cataract: Because of other eye diseases such as Glaucoma, Uveitis, retinal degeneration, retinal detachment etc.
3. Metabolic Cataract
Due to metabolic disorders such as Diabetes, Thyroid disorders, calcium metabolic disorders. Excessive use of oral or topical steroids.
4. Traumatic Cataract
Cataract may develop immediately or years after an injury which causes damage to the eye, known as a traumatic Cataract and can occur due to blunt trauma to the eye or from exposure of the eye to alkaline chemicals. A penetrating eye injury is associated with quick Cataract development.
5. Congenital/Developmental Cataract
If a child is born with a Cataract, it is known as a congenital Cataract. Pregnant women suffering from rubella, give birth to such babies. In some Cataract may be insignificant enough not to interfere with vision, in which case it is left alone. If the Cataract does cause vision disturbances in the child the lens of the eye may be removed and replaced with a synthetic lens.
6. Radiation Cataract
This type of Cataract may be caused from over exposure to ultraviolet sunlight and other forms of radiation.
What Should You Look For When Cataract Develops?
The most common symptom of Cataract is the noticeable blurring and worsening of vision. Other symptoms include the dimming and fading of colors, decreased night vision, glare with bright lights and sunshine, and in many cases, regular visits to the ophthalmologist for changes in glasses and contact lens prescriptions as vision worsens.
Who Are More Prone To Cataract?
Diabetics, obese, alcoholics, smokers, and those on steroids for long term, with a family history of Cataract at early age, premature birth, HIV Positive, prolonged exposure to heat radiation, malnutrition, have been associated with early onset of Cataract formation.
How Does Cataract Affect Our Daily Life?
The most common symptom of Cataract is the noticeable blurring and worsening of vision. Other symptoms include the diminution and fading of colors, decreased night vision, glare with bright lights and sunshine, and in many cases, regular visits to the ophthalmologist for changes in glasses and contact lens prescriptions as vision worsens.
Who Are More Prone To Cataract?
Diabetics, obese, alcoholics, smokers, and those on steroids for long term, with a family history of Cataract at early age, premature birth, HIV Positive, prolong exposure to heat radiations, malnutrition, have been associated with early onset of Cataract formation.
How Can Cataract Be Prevented?
Staying healthy and avoiding lifestyle habits that increase the risk of diabetes, taking balanced diet will subsequently decrease the risk of developing Cataract. Avoid environmental exposures which have been associated with Cataract formation such as prolonged exposure to sunrays, prolonged use of corticosteroids, smoking and abuse of alcohol.
To reduce the risk of radiation Cataract, wear Ultraviolet rays protecting sunglasses. Pregnant females should get immunization for German measles (rubella).
Surgical Removal of Cataract with/without implantation of Intraocular lens is the only treatment for Cataract. In cataracts treatment we also provide laser cataract surgery and microincision cataract surgery.
Phacoemulsification technique for Cataract removal is the treatment of choice in which Cataract is broken, emulsified and then sucked out of the capsular bag of Cataract through a small incision size of 2.8mm using ultrasound technology.
During phacoemulsification, capsular bag of Cataract is preserved in which artificial lens of appropriate power is implanted. Although the aim of surgery is achieving uncorrected 6/6 vision post operatively, yet many factors in visual pathway from Cornea till occipital cortex does not allow any surgeon to guarantee for the visual outcome. With the help of new diagnostic technology, most advanced and sophisticated phaco machines and a vast experience of more than 30,000 successful Cataract extractions with IOL implantation by the Pioneer of Intraocular implant surgeries of the region, Dr. Jatinder Singh Chief Ophthalmic Consultant of J P Eye Hospital, post operative results can be predicted in 95% of patients accurately.
Intraocular lens (IOL) is a device that replaces the natural lens within the capsular bag. They are folded and inserted through a small incision and unfolded inside the eye. After Cataract surgery with implantable lenses, glasses or contact lenses are needed in only about 10 percent of the cases
