What is cataract?
A cataract is an opacity (or cloudiness) in the lens of the eye. This cloudiness develops inside the lens and restricts light passing through the eye and reaching the retina. When this occurs, vision is affected. An opacity can be quite minor or it can become so marked that it prevents adequate vision.
How is cataract treated?
Only cataracts causing symptoms need treatment. Modern cataract or lens replacement surgery is effective in restoring vision to most patients. This involves removing the cloudy lens from inside the eye through a small incision, and replacing it with a new artificial lens, called Intra ocular lens (IOL)
How does cataract effects sleep and cognitive function according to recent study in japan?
Advanced cataracts can reduce the amount of light that reaches the retina in the back of the eye, and this may cause an abnormal circadian rhythm that affects sleep. As per study, people who have disturbed sleep patterns are more likely to be cognitively impaired. Removing the cataracts lets the light come into the eyes again, which may bring circadian rhythm and sleep quality back to normal.
What are latest advancements in cataract surgery?
1. Reduction in the size of incisions to 1.8 mm k/as Micro incision cataract surgery (MICS)
2. Injection free surgery done under topical eye drops to avoid painful injections and their fear
3. IOL’s to correct cylindrical power with Toric IOL’s so that there is no need for distant vision glasses
4. IOL’s for reduced dependence on near vision glasses after surgery with multifocal IOL’s.
What are the facilities for cataract surgery at QRG health city?
At, QRG health city we are routinely performing MICS surgeries with incision size less than 2 mm with options of best quality hydrophobic monofocal, toric and multifocals IOL’s to our patients. Also we are performing all surgeries under topical anaesthesia without any need of injections
What are the complications of cataract surgery?
Though cataract surgery is now one of the safest surgery with the latest advances in its techniques but it still have few complications which may occur intraoperative, early postoperative and late postoperative period varying from 1 month to even 10 years after cataract surgery.
How do we decrease the risk of complications during & after cataract surgery at QRG health city?
We believe in quality rather than quantity, so we keep our surgery list to a maximum of 3 cases in a day, which ensures that every patient receives utmost attention to their medical problems and no compromise is made at any step of surgery. We maintain highest sterility during all stages of surgery by using new blades & best viscoelastic chemicals in each and every case. We have a true MICS platform phaco machine & we have a stand by anaesthesiologist in all our cases. Postoperatively also, we evaluate our patients on highly advanced instruments like 3D -OCT which detects earliest swelling in the retina if any. The implanted range of IOL’s in our hospital are from the best IOL manufacturing companies like Alcon, Baush and Lomb, AMO which minimises the risk of membrane opacity formation behind the IOL’s. We proudly boost results with less than 0.5% complication rates.

Hi, doctors my little daughter, who's only 4 year old. When I was playing with her she just got a redness Mark in her one eye through my hand, Which is still visible in her eye after 15 hours passed. Can you pls advise us for this, what we should do for it.
Its opacity in clear natural lens of eye which comes in line of vision
Symptoms are haziness in front of eye which doesn't improve with corrective glasses,
Cause - senile age related - its more common in old age after 65 years although few patients who are diabetic or have taken steroids for long periods may have early onset of cataract, sometimes children / young adults have cataract due to congenital (since birth) disease or trauma
Prevention of cataract. People have tried antioxidant tablets but its role is still not confirmed, sometimes we give 1 month therapy of antioxidants (gloeye or fiteye etc) in very early cataract to prevent further progression but its role is also not confirmed in medical studies. Note- use of multivitamin/antioxidant should be under medical guidance.
Treatment of cataract -
Surgery - phaco. With iol implant
Indications depends on each individual, some people who are very elderly and have minor cataract does well with glasses alone, but majority of people with significant cataract choose surgery if that's hindering there life styles
Surgery is the most important thing which gives you instant benefits and success rates are excellent in best hands.
Always choose the latest stichless cataract surgery with good foldable lens implants from reputed companies like alcon, amo, zeiss etc. Neeless to add from good experienced surgeon
Some patients do require toric implants if they have preexisting high cylinders of more than 2 diopters
Latest is flacs or bladeless cataract surgery where some steps of surgery are done by laser equipment. Useful in few cases like hypermature cataract or very hard cataract. As cost is 3 times normal cataract surgery.

Those who are working long hours on the phone / laptops / computers are prone to develop this problem
Symptoms are tiredness, heaviness or foreign body sensation in eyes after long hours of computer usage especially in evenings
Cause is excessive use of internal eye focusing muscles and reduced blinking rate while working on these devices
Prevention - best is to give rest breaks to your eyes either 2 mins every 20 mins of computer work or 5mins after every hour of computer work
Use plain anti reflective coating glasses while working on these devices which prevents excess light reflections
Change screen settings to bigger fonts, high contrast and medium brightness
