Cataracts can develop over time, especially in adults over the age of 40. Over time, the lens behind the pupil loses its transparency and begins to tarnish. If this issue worsens, you may lose your vision. It is not treatable with glasses or medicines. To achieve decent outcomes, a surgical procedure is required.
How to apply Cataract Surgery?
The patient is required to undergo a detailed eye examination. After this examination is completed, doctor determines the treatment which will be used and informs the patient.
The pupil is enlarged with drops before the operation. The lens which has lost its transparency is replaced with an artificial lens by opening micro incisions in the surgery. With the help of this new lens, patient can regain his/her vision back. This is a classical method which has been used for many years.
There is also an alternative method called as Smart Lens Treatment, which has been developed with the help of modern technology and preferred by many people lately. This method is used in cataract treatment extensively and involves the same procedures.
Smart lens treatment is used for different eye problems and can fix vision problems.
