Best Cataract Surgery in Ambala

What is Cataract?

Cataract is a common eye condition characterized by the clouding of the natural lens of the eye, which lies behind the iris and the pupil. This clouding typically occurs gradually over time, leading to a progressive deterioration in vision. Cataracts can affect one or both eyes and can develop due to various factors, including aging, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, certain medical conditions (such as diabetes), eye injuries, or genetic predisposition.

Symptoms of cataracts may include:

  • Blurred or cloudy vision
  • Difficulty seeing in dim or low-light conditions
  • Sensitivity to glare from lights
  • Colors appearing faded or yellowed
  • Double vision in one eye
  • Frequent changes in glasses or contact lens prescriptions

Cataracts can significantly impair vision and interfere with daily activities such as reading, driving, and recognizing faces. However, cataract surgery is a highly effective treatment option, involving the removal of the cloudy lens and its replacement with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries worldwide and is typically safe and associated with high success rates in restoring clear vision.

What food not to eat after cataract surgery?
After your cataract surgery, it’s time to rethink your food choices!

So, bid farewell to sweetened beverages, candies, and refined carbs found in white bread or pasta.
Is vision clear immediately after cataract surgery?
As the eyes heal and adjust, some patients may experience blurry vision. Patients usually experience clear vision the day following the surgery. However, for some people vision can take several days to return to normal. Patients should prepare for other mild side effects as their vision clears after cataract surgery.

Phacoemulsification is the most common cataract surgery technique performed. Cataract surgery is used to restore vision in patients whose vision has become cloudy from cataracts, a clouding of the eye’s lens.

During phacoemulsification, a surgeon makes a small incision at the edge of the cornea and then creates an opening in the membrane that surrounds the lens. A small ultrasonic probe is then inserted, breaking up the cloudy lens into tiny fragments. The instrument vibrates at ultrasonic speed to chop and almost dissolve the lens material into tiny fragments. The fragments are then suctioned out of the capsule by an attachment on the probe tip.

After the lens particles are removed, an intraocular lens implant, commonly referred to as an IOL, is implanted and positioned into the lenses natural capsule. It is inserted through the tiny corneal incision through a hollowed out tube. Once the lens is pushed through, it unfolds and is positioned in place.

Painless Walk in- Walk out Procedure

Cataract Surgery is a “Walk in- Walk out” procedure. Surgery is mostly done without using anesthesia injections into the eye. Anesthetic drops numb the surface of the eye and the surgery can be performed comfortably and painlessly.

My 87 year old father underwent a cataract surgery recently and every step right from initial examination, till surgery and post surgery care was excellently defined and executed. The entire staff took special care of my frail father due to his age. I must mention Manish Kumar, floor Manager who had been instrumental in making the entire process smooth as silk.
