WHAT IS CATARACT?

Cataract /clouding/ is a manifestation of the ageing processes in the eye. Similar to grey hairs, ocular structures become less transparent as the years go by. About 50% of the population of up to 60 years of age has a cataract at some stage of development. This is clouding of the lens, which is part of the optical system of the eye. The cause for that process is unknown.

Ultraviolet and infrared rays, smoking, and some medicines are risk factors for the development of clouding. There are no proven prevention methods either.

CATARACT SYMPTOMS

  • Blurred vision;
  • Reading difficulties;
  • High sensitivity of oncoming headlight;
  • Seeing in double vision; “circles” around a turned on lamp

A thorough medical examination may determine that you have clouding of your eye’s lens.

THE ONLY METHOD OF TREATMENT IS SURGERY

The surgical removal of the clouding of the lens and its replacement with an artificial one is the best eyesight recovery method.

No stitches are made after the tiny surgical incision;

In the first days following the surgery you must put eye drops to enhance the healing process;
