Cataract is the blurring of the transparent lens in our eyes. The most common cause of cataract is aging, however, it can be experienced at an early age too.
Also, trauma, chemical substances, systemic diseases such as diabetes and drugs can speed up the cataract development.
The most common symptom is to start losing the ability to see. There may be also complaints such as light reflections and glare.
The purpose of the cataract treatment is to increase the ability to see. The level of affecting the life of the patient is much more important rather than the level of vision when deciding on the operation.
The progressed cataract operations may take longer and the risk may increase because of complications such as glaucoma and uveitis.
The cataractous intraocular lens of the patient is removed and a transparent lens is placed. There were many complaints and the recovery process was long in the cataract surgery in the past, however, today, the cataract is removed with a small incision with phacoemulsification method and the transparent lens is placed. There is no need for stitches after the operation. There is no need to stay at the hospital for the patient after the operation. The patient should use the prescribed drugs for 10-15 days after the operation and use glasses, if necessary.
