Cataracts are a common eye condition that characterised by cloudy areas developing in the eye's natural lens, causing blurred or reduced vision. As we age, eye lenses lose flexibility and transparency leading to cataracts. Thankfully, there is an effective treatment—cataract removal surgery.


What are the Treatment of Cataract Disease?


Your doctor might suggest cataract extraction surgery if it starts getting in the way of everyday activities like reading, driving, or watching TV. Here's some info to help you understand the procedure better:


  • During the eye cataract operation, the doctor removes the clouded lens and replaces it with a new, artificial lens (also called an intraocular lens, or IOL). 
  • Cataract surgery is one of the most common and safe surgeries in the US. However retinal detachment and eye infection are potential risks to consider. Underlying conditions can also increase complications.
  • Mild pain and discomfort are common after surgery. Vision improves quickly but full recovery takes 4-8 weeks. Your doctor will guide you on appropriate activity levels during recovery.
