Cataract Surgery:

  • Cataracts are a common age-related condition where the lens of the eye becomes cloudy, leading to vision impairment. Eye hospitals often provide cataract surgery, a procedure to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens, restoring clear vision.
    • Preoperative Assessment:

      • Prior to surgery, a comprehensive eye examination is conducted to assess the severity of the cataract, measure the eye's dimensions, and determine the most suitable intraocular lens (IOL) for the patient

      Informed Consent:

      • Patients are provided with detailed information about the procedure, potential risks, benefits, and alternatives
      • Informed consent is obtained before the surgery


      • Cataract surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia, which may involve numbing eye drops or a small injection
      • In some cases, general anesthesia may be used


      • Most cataract surgeries involve a technique called phacoemulsification
      • In this procedure, a small incision is made in the eye, and ultrasonic vibrations are used to break up the cloudy lens, which is then removed
