Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of the eye, replace it with an artificial lens. A cataract causes the lens to become cloudy, leading to blurry vision.

Who needs cataract surgery:
Do you have problems reading, watching or driving?
Do vision problems affect your level of independence?
Yes, than you probably need cataract surgery.

Before the procedure:
A week or so before your surgery, your eye doctor performs a painless ultrasound test to measure the size and shape of your eye. This helps determine the right type of lens implant, called an intraocular lens, or IOL. IOLs are made of plastic, acrylic or silicone.

Cataract surgery, usually an outpatient procedure, takes an hour or less to perform. During cataract surgery, the clouded lens is removed, and a clear artificial lens is usually implanted. A small incision is made on the surface of the eye. Through this incision, your surgeon will use a technique called phacoemulsification, which involves breaking up the cloudy lens using ultrasound waves.

After the procedure:
After cataract surgery, expect your vision to start getting better within a few days. Your vision may be blurry at first as your eye heals and adjusts.

Cataract surgery cost:
In USA it may cost roughly $2,500, where as in India & Africa same can be done from $ 300 to $ 1000.

According to the World Health Organization, cataracts are the leading cause of blindness worldwide, accounting for about 51% of all cases of blindness.

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can restore your vision and improve your quality of life. Surgery improves vision for 97% of people and most people don’t have any complications.
